A Topographical Survey (Land Survey) is a key component to any design process to any planned development of an area and is used by many people from architects, civil engineers, developers, builders and the private individual.
A topographical survey maps the boundaries, building footprints of existing and neighbouring structures, drainage, trees, ground surface types and levels of a site plus many more features that vary from site to site.
With our reflector-less survey Leica Total Stations we can gain ridge and eaves heights of the current and neighbouring buildings, overhead cables heights, tree heights, bridge soffits and other key structures.
Fosse Surveying has invested in the latest cutting edge Leica survey technology to ensure that every survey produced for our clients is to the highest possible standard of accuracy. The latest survey technology is used to give our surveyors the edge with faster and accurate equipment which allows you to locate many key features that appear on and off-site.
All of our surveys are related to Ordnance Survey via GNSS site equipment and delivered to our clients needs in DWG, DXF, PDF, CSV, GEN or XYZ formats both in 2D and 3D once professional checked by management once the onsite surveyor has processed the site data in LSS and then AutoCAD.
All of our quotes are based on a full specification topographic survey so no detail is missed throughout our site visit.
You can view examples of our topographical surveys below. For information about the other services we offer such as Measured Building Surveys or 3D Laser Scanning Surveys, you can browse through our services pages. Alternatively, please feel free to contact us with any questions.
Topographical surveys help to manage your project by uncovering any potential issues or barriers that may have not been accounted for in the initial plans. This process saves a considerable amount of time and allows for contingencies to be put in place to prevent costly mistakes.
