Who we work with
Topographic specification tailored to your requirements
Starting with early-stage detailed discussions, we will give you practical advice and support based on years of experience. We will help you develop your site survey brief to ensure the resulting topographical survey quote meets your specific technical requirements and contains the relevant information for your project.
We want to make sure you receive the correct survey for the work you are undertaking; safeguarding against unnecessary costs for collecting unwanted data or for the need to commission expensive additional surveys to obtain missing data.
Using the latest technology
Our topographic surveyors are equipped with the latest GPS, Total Station and laser scanning measuring instruments. They will employ both traditional surveying techniques and the latest laser technologies.
Adhering to professional quality standards, we work to:
- RICS and TSA professional codes
- our own exacting ISO 9001 quality standards
- and BS 1192 for BIM ready survey services
- an ethos of ‘always right first time‘
You can always trust the information you receive, which is why we have established long term relationships with so many of our clients.
Digital delivery of survey data
Our surveyors will also prepare your survey data in a 2D or 3D CAD format which can be incorporated into a BIM model if required. All survey data is delivered direct to your desktop ready for you to start work.
Our in-house team is able to provide your topographic information in a number of digital formats including GIS, .shp, .tab, .bds and other file formats.
We can also import other digital information supplied by you, by migrating this information from pdf to CAD format. The completed OS data maps will be supplied to you in a CAD file format, scaled to suit your requirements and containing your corporate branding if desired.
