Topographical surveys are surveys of existing sites in order to locate existing features such as services, vegetation, roading, structures and ground contours. This information is most often utilised by architects and engineers to carry out their designs. Amongst our equipment we have our own roving GPS unit which allows us the flexibility to carry out these surveys in almost any location with seamless precision. The accuracy and detail of our resultant plan will save you considerable time and money during design.
Boundary Fence Surveys:
It is not unusual for a boundary fence to be located in the incorrect position and for this reason it should not be assumed it is correct. Mistakes generally happen because someone has not taken the time to instruct a surveyor to show them exactly where it should go. This can be particularly problematic when dealing with old properties where a home owner or developer wants to renew a fence or build in close proximity to a boundary. The consequences of not finding out the location of the true boundary and taking short cuts can be very expensive. Let us remove the stress and help you sleep at night.
The QEII Trust helps landowners protect significant natural and cultural features on their land through open space covenants. Part of this process involves the mapping and measuring of these covenants so they may be accurately graphically depicted to formalize their protection in perpetuity. The Surveying Company has taken great satisfaction in assisting with the technical aspects of this valuable process.
The Surveying Company has assisted in the protection of over 4500 ha of significant natural or cultural land mostly throughout the East Coast of the North Island. To date this has involved over 120 separate surveys and features protected include landscapes, forest remnants, wetlands, grasslands, threatened species habitats, and cultural and archaeological sites.
Carbon Farming Surveys:
The Surveying Company is able to deliver precise farm maps at a variety of accuracy requirements. We have the ability to utilise our survey accurate GPS equipment to produce farm maps at below ±0.5m accuracy, however if you are looking for a more cost-effective solution we can work with aerial photograpy to deliver to you a plan view showing paddock names, areas, fencelines or any other desired feature.
