What is a Topographical Survey?

What is a Topographical Survey?

A topographical surveying is the process of determining the positions, both on plan and elevation, of the natural and artificial features of a locality for the purpose of delineating them by means of conventional signs upon a topographic map. Usually, the survey is used as the first step in the process of developing a project site. Therefore, it is crucial that the survey captures the land in its truest form to enable developers and contractors to clearly see what is on the project site. Topographical surveys help in planning purposes, such as in drainage works, new buildings, and re-positioning of boundaries. Through this survey, you will understand, in detail, the land’s topography and the site’s condition to proceed with design and construction works. We will conduct your topographical survey using advanced survey equipment and the latest laser scanning technology, such as total stations, GPS, and 3D laser scanners, according to your required level of detail.

What is the Process of a Topographic Survey?

Our experienced surveyors will arrive on your project site and conduct the topographical survey using the required specification. We will determine which geographical area to be included, the level of detail required, the accuracy and data output. We complete the survey and gather the data to process and undertake quality control. The point cloud is registered and ready to be used with the CAD or BIM software to produce accurate and reliable 2D drawings or 3D Models. Receive bulletproof information from our survey with reliable data to proceed with your building or site project.

Why is it Beneficial for your Site Project?

  • With the topographical survey data, you have a detailed and accurate picture of your land. This can help you reduce the risk of costly downstream mistakes resulting from unforeseen issues.
  • The survey provides you with final as-built 2D drawings to verify that the site was built in substantial conformance with proposed laws.
  • It will inform your design process to avoid any impacts of the land on your construction project, i.e., proper understanding of the topography of your land will help you know its potential effect on a planned project. An in-depth knowledge of the land around and under you enhances the durability of your construction project.
  • Conducting a topographical survey will help you reduce any potential costs in case objects that can delay a construction work are identified later in the course of an ongoing project.
