Topographical SurveysTopographical Surveys

A key task of any building development

A comprehensive land survey is one of the key tasks of any building development. An accurate and thorough survey provides the foundation for all future work to proceed with confidence.

At Datum Surveying we aim to provide a professional service to clients that call for the services of a Land Surveyor. Architects, Engineers and Developers need precise information to plan site development from inception to completion. A comprehensive land survey will not only provide the boundary and detail within in a site but also potential restrictions and problems that may be encountered. The benefits of commissioning a site survey cannot be understated.

All our standard topographical surveys are undertaken in accordance with the RICS Specification Surveys of Land, Buildings and Utility Services at Scales of 1:500 and Larger.

Topographic data is prepared from ground survey observations for a variety of end users.  Terrain models, contours and infrastructure are mapped to precise accuracy and scale, providing topographical 2D and 3D data, wire frame models and digital ground models for all types of projects including road schemes, commercial, residential and industrial developments, pipelines and flood prevention studies.

  • All information provided is to Ordnance Survey grid and datum so a comparison to Land Registry maps are straight forward
  • All existing site features and levels are picked up to aid the Client in their design process for their proposed project
  • Existing Services can be surveyed to enable the Client plus Contractors to see potential clashes between the proposed design and existing services
  • All as built features are picked up to show that a new build project has been constructed as design

"Datum Surveying Services Ltd. were employed to carry out all of our setting out and surveying requirements on our latest project at Markham Vale. They provided a highly accurate and reliable service in tough conditions and we look forward to using their services on our next projects."
