Land Surveying

What Is Land Surveying

Land surveying is the activity of taking measurements of distance, height, depth, level or direction in relation to land, the space above land, the subsurface below land and including land covered by water.

Land surveying plays a major role in all property based projects by establishing property boundaries and positioning of building and engineering works.

By utilising cutting edge technologies like GNSS, Robotic Total Stations and Laser Scanners, our land surveyors here at Clement and Reid gather data that’s instrumental in all property projects from construction, land development and development planning. The outcomes ensure adherence to regulations and assist in the efficient execution of property development projects.

Land SurveyingFAQ

What is the importance of land surveying?

Land surveying is crucial for several reasons. It ensures accurate property definition, which is essential for legal transactions, dispute resolution, and effective land use planning. Surveying helps in establishing property boundaries, which are critical for determining ownership and avoiding disputes between neighbours. 

Additionally, it supports infrastructure development by providing precise data needed for construction and urban planning, thus facilitating efficient land utilisation and minimising conflicts.

How much does a survey cost and how long does it take?

The cost of a survey and the time it takes can vary depending on the size and complexity of your project. To get an accurate estimate, reach out to us with some details about your specific needs, and we’ll provide you with a transparent breakdown of costs and timelines.

Rest assured, we’re committed to delivering efficient and cost-effective survey solutions tailored to your requirements, ensuring a smooth and hassle-free experience from start to finish.

What technology do our land surveyors use?

Our land surveyors use a variety of technologies to enhance accuracy and efficiency. These include GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems), Robotic Total Stations, Terrestrial Laser Scanners (LIDAR) and Point Clouds.

These technologies allow our team of surveyors to capture detailed and precise data about the land's topography, boundaries, and features, which are essential for planning and development.

What type of survey do I need for my project?

The type of survey you need for your project depends on the specific requirements and objectives. For instance, a lease survey is ideal for identifying property boundaries and lease areas, while a topographic survey provides detailed information about the land's features and elevations.

It's best to consult with our professional land surveyors who can assess your project's needs and recommend the most suitable survey type.

What should I provide to a surveyor before they start?

You should be able to provide the surveyor with the property address, any specific requirements for the survey and the purpose of the survey.

Telling the surveyor what you hope to achieve with your project allows us to determine the best survey solution for you and your needs or offer more efficient alternatives.
