      What is a topographical survey?

      A topographical survey is also known as a topographic survey, land survey or topo survey. It involves scanning a site or land to identify and determine in-depth natural and man-made elements with levels. Topographical Surveys can distinguish all features, including the property, land features, and physical boundary details within the area of interest.

      What topographic survey can identify:

      • Area boundary lines
      • Buildings and structures
      • Trees, bushes and vegetation positions
      • Water channels
      • Ground heights, contours and surfaces
      • Water levels

      What is topographical survey used for?

      Topographical survey is indispensable method for various professionals, including architects, engineers, and development consultants. They are pivotal during the following:

      • Initial planning stages for new buildings, boundary re-positioning, and drainage works.
      • The entire lifecycle of a construction project, aiding in detailed land analysis for design and construction phases.
      • Evaluating land elevation, planning plot layouts, and assessing existing land conditions and infrastructure.

      Very good service! I was looking for a company which can do measured survey for my house in order to obtain planning permission. My architect quoted me twice more for existing plans. I came across Red Laser Scanning and booked the survey for the next day and received drawings three days after. Highly recommended!

      Topographical Survey FAQ

      Land surveyors undertake a topographical survey to provide information on land elevations and capture natural and manmade features with levels. It presents complete data of plot of land, including property, land features and physical boundary details. Identify ground and site levels with features or areas likely to arise above or even beneath the main surface.

      You will receive high quality and detailed topo drawings or 3D models if specified. These will include existing buildings and structures, boundaries, ground surfaces, maintenance holes, utility poles, tree positions, walkways, service covers, and established site levels. If you require additional details, you are free to discuss such matters before your topographical survey.

      Topographical surveys can be used for many sectors and factors. You may fulfil regulatory requirements for construction codes, obtain volumetric calculations, proceed with environmental restoration and property improvements, construction and architectural projects, plan new road layout formation and many more.

      We issue quotes as soon as the same day. From there, a topographical survey for your site project may be available as quickly as the day after you call. Once a topographical survey completes on-site, we will swiftly work on your deliverables and confirm the delivery date.
