Even professional developers have commented on how helpful they have found the seven step brochure for understanding the subdivision process. This procedure can be universally applied to a range of subdivisions we carry out for professionals from large scale residential projects to rural farm park developments to multi strata unit title developments. It is never too early to contact us as our expertise can be invaluable for detecting future issues even if we are not involved directly in the planning aspect.

Project Management:

A sign of the times is that projects today are becoming more complex with more requirements being imposed by Council authorities. Subdivision requires coordination amongst a range of professionals and a surveyor is ideally positioned to manage these parts as we have a diverse range of experience including planning, engineering and legal expertise. If you are looking to place someone at the hub of any development project you would be wise to pick one of our management team. This will be the most important decision you make before proceeding.Subdivision Feasibility Assessment:Before any project goes ahead the numbers have to work. We can work through the numbers for you starting with your gross realization, allowing for your profit and risk and accounting for any costs. If this does not add up for you we will deliver the hard figures and suggest not proceeding. Of course if the numbers are favourable you will have the confidence to go ahead with enthusiasm.Topographical Surveys: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.Computer Aided Drafting:We have the technology to present any property related information graphically in a highly accurate and clear manner whether this be to satisfy a building consent application for Council or any other related visual purpose.

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.

BOMA, Rentable Area Surveys:

Landlords and tenants require precise measurements of buildings for calculating rentables areas in terms of the Building and Office Management Associations (BOMA) Guide to the Measurement of Rentable Areas.  The Surveying Company has the expertise and experience to undertake BOMA surveys and to produce accurate plans for inclusion into lease documentation.

Civil Engineering Design and Management:

The Surveying Company has completed many subdivisions incorporating efficiently managed civil engineered designs.  We have an intimate knowledge of the contract and construction process and know how to avoid the pitfalls that can often lead to delays and cost overruns.
