A topographical survey is an accurate representation of the area of interest which shows all natural and manmade features inclusive of levels. A topographical survey highlights any difference between the true levels and gradients of the land at the project site, and those presupposed in preliminary designs. They are used to identify and map the contours of the ground and existing features.
Before starting on any project, a topographical Survey can help you visualise the land that you intend to develop. Details such as Contours, spot levels, services and site boundaries are recorded and plotted so that you can carry out designs with confidence.
Using the latest surveying equipment such as high-end total stations, GPS units and 3D scanners, detailed surveys any size and complexity can be undertaken and presented in scale drawing form or in digital data compatible with a wide range of CAD design systems.
All topographical surveys are undertaken to RICS specification. RICS best practice is at the heart of our survey workflows.
“On numerous occasions I have used RSL to undertake Topographical survey work. To which they have always provided a very professional and reliable service at a competitive price and I would not hesitate to recommend them.”
