Pre-construction property survey

Know the lay of the land

To avoid time-consuming and stressful boundary disputes, every intelligent property owner should have a full and comprehensive property survey conducted prior to sale or purchase of land, or commencement of construction.

Collating all relevant information relating to natural and man-made characteristics of the land, land surveying provides key information important for inclusion in property files such as title reports, typically required by lenders, buyers, or insurance providers.

Using tried and true methods of surveying, paired with the latest geospatial technology, and decades of experience, our surveyors are able to provide a detailed picture of the boundary lines and topographical features of your site.

Pre-construction property surveying

Site dimensions: 6200 ft²

The first step in preparing your site for construction is a detailed and accurate site plan. Detailing the land’s attributes and legal boundaries with absolute precision, your pre-construction property survey enables you to move forward with the construction of your new home with absolute clarity.

Our skilled surveyors are highly experienced in this process, and are able to carry out all required surveying work and associated processing work, and have your documents returned to you in as soon as 3 weeks.

Included in this service:

  • Property deed details
  • Placement of pegs marking the physical boundaries of site boundaries
  • Detailed measurements of the site
  • Plat map inclusive of boundary markings and underground facilities (such as pipelines, tanks, sewer lines, etc)
  • Plat map filed with local council

Actual on-site surveying work typically takes 3 hours.

Lifesavers during a time crunch! We ran into a bit of a hurdle during subdivision of our land, and needed surveying carried out in record time. This team were on site the same day they were called, and returned all mapping mere days after that! Legends.
