What is a Topographic Survey?
It's clear that conducting a topographical survey is crucial for the success of any construction or design project. Topographical surveys (Land Surveys) provide accurate and detailed information about the existing conditions of the site, which is essential for proper planning and execution.
Measured Surveys Carried Out By Skilled Land Surveyors
Our land surveyors will visit your site and carry out your topographic survey using GPS survey equipment, total stations and laser scanners.
Land Survey for Site Understanding
Before starting any design work, it's essential to have a comprehensive understanding of the site's existing features, boundaries, and levels. A topographical land survey provides this vital information, allowing designers and architects to work with a clear understanding of the site's characteristics.
Accurate Measurements from a Topographical Survey
The use of laser scanners, GPS, and drones ensures that the measurements taken during the survey are accurate and detailed. Accuracy is crucial for making informed design decisions and avoiding potential conflicts or issues during construction.
Topographic Survey Feature Inclusion
Topographical surveys capture various site features, such as buildings, manhole covers, drainage, trees, walls, fences, and more. Our comprehensive data helps in designing around existing features and understanding their impact on the project.
Land Surveys with an Underground Services Survey to reduce costs
The layout of the underground services on your site will also be crucial to your project. We carry out utility surveys for you to map out all the pipes and cables below your site. These underground services will be shown as separate layers on your topographic survey so they can easily be avoided, moved, or connected to.
Drone Topographical Surveys
For larger areas Bury Associates accurately controlled on the ground by survey-grade GPS/GNSS and supplemented by terrestrial surveys and laser scanning, our drone topographical surveys guarantee accuracy and full cover.
Underground Service Tracing
Bury Associates underground services tracing team use radio detection equipment and ground penetrating radar to scan your site for underground services. Delivered as a 2D or 3D CAD overlay as part of a topographical survey
Project: Seal Sanctuary, Lincolnshire
Bury Associates were tasked with conducting a detailed measured building survey and topographical survey of the site.
