Topographical Surveys are used to establish and define the contours of the ground that is being surveyed, including exact location of features on and around the area being mapped. Features such as trees, buildings, roads, pathways, manholes, utility poles, walls, etc. are all accurately surveyed.
Topographical Surveys are commonly used for many applications, including record mapping, boundaries, building positioning, property sale, planning permission etc.
The data can also be issued in three dimensions for input into CAD systems, for total management of a building or construction project.
Measured Building Surveys
Measured Building Surveys provide accurate and detailed plans of a building’s structure and layout, which can then be used for design and refitting purposes.
A typical survey would show all structural features including windows, walls, doors, beams, floor and ceiling heights. Onto this can be added fixtures and fittings such as sanitaryware, electrical outlets, fittings, radiators etc.
Our surveyors use a combination of the very latest equipment and instruments to carry out each building survey to ensure the highest possible accuracy.
GPS (Global Positioning Systems) Surveying is the most advanced positioning and data recording technology currently available. Using available satellites from around the world, the receivers record satellite signals and, with internal software, highly accurate horizontal and vertical positioning data can be provided about any point or feature.
The processed data is then available in various forms to ensure everyone has the highest quality information for a project.
We have found that GPS surveying technology is adaptable and versatile, and could be utilised in most civil engineering and construction projects. It is user-friendly and can link up with various software applications to give the surveyor an accurate and all-round surveying tool.
Whether it is pegging out highway boundaries or setting out a centre line with offsets, our surveyors and office staff work together to ensure that you get the design placed where it was intended and to the required accuracy.
Setting out foundations, block or brickwork, positioning roof or steel structures, providing level data at all stages of construction, Metro Plans can do it all.
We can perform topographical surveys before or after site work, to determine quantity of land removed, or work alongside ground workers to define levels for foundation or final profiles. Relocating existing property boundaries from registry plans or title deeds, or assisting in the definition of new or disputed ones, we are often called upon to establish fence lines or wall positions.
