SURVEYING

INTRODUCTION

We offer a wide range of surveying services including measured building, structural, topographic, building elevations and floor plans. All our surveys are undertaken by our experienced survey team who have worked a wide range of complex commercial, industrial and residential projects.

All our surveys are carried out using the latest equipment and software and we produce comprehensive drawings tailored to your requirements and suitable for use by your architectural designer, landscape architect, developer etc.  We pride ourselves on producing thorough and accurate surveys which minimise problems and delays and therefore represent excellent value for money.

If appointed, we will work closely with your Architect or other architectural designer to provide a survey solution that is sympathetic to your needs and budget.
