You can avoid costly mistakes by having a topographical survey of your project.  You’ll then have an accurate understanding of your site.

Our surveyors will use laser scanners and drones to accurately measure every detail of your site in 3D.  You can then base your design work on the survey and be confident that you will have all the information you need for a successful project.

What is a topographical survey?

A topographical survey is a centimetre-accurate highly detailed map of your site. You’ll be able to see the position of many features.  Buildings, manhole covers, lampposts, individual trees, steps, walls and fences are all shown, along with surface descriptions, levels and heights. Our surveyors fully measure your site using drones, laser scanners, robotic total stations and precise GPS systems.  These capture Ordnance Survey co-ordinates and levels instantly. You can have your topographical survey delivered in any digital format, such as 2D CAD, 3D CAD, PDF or Revit.

What our customers say

  • Thanks again for being so proactive and wonderful to deal with.



  • “Having a survey of both our main venues on Webshare has enabled visiting companies to carry out site visits (including accurate dimensioning) remotely.  At the same time, the Webshare alleviates headaches for Malvern Theatres by assisting tours who are unaware of any constraints.  A picture tells a thousand words (especially when it is mm accurate!)  Webshare saves money for the visiting tours and hassle for the venue at a reasonable cost”.

  • We’ve recently used Bury (not my first experience of the company) for a laser survey and Revit model output; first rate communication, responses and modelling, all within my alloted timescales. Perfect service, massive thanks to Steve and his team. We’ll be back…
