“We had a budget and knew the deadlines, but everything stalled when it was discovered the boundary was wrong!”
Don’t let that be you!
It is easy to avoid costly delays during design, building or renovating.
Guessing, when you are spending your money on probably one of your most expensive assets could be a disaster.
Land and Building Surveying is the measurement and mapping of the surrounding environment using mathematics along with specialised technology, equipment and experience.
Surveyors can measure just about anything on the land, in the sky or on the ocean bed. By using the latest technology they can go to a high level of detail. This information is the right foundation for your project.
They use sophisticated software to draft plans and map the onsite measures. Because their skills are so diverse they can work on multiple projects from surveying land for a big renovation, a new home build, land subdivision, mining exploration, major construction – even building tunnels!
The information and advice that they provide to architects, engineers, builders – in fact anyone who is going to build something provides all the information needed for any build based on data. What this translates into for the client is a strong foundation for their design or build.
Land surveying is one of the oldest professions in the world. The first land surveys date back to nearly 3,000 years ago. Egyptian surveyors subdivided the fertile land around the Nile River and worked on re-marking the land after the annual flooding of the Nile River.
The majority of famous early explorers in Australia, including Burke and Wills had a surveying background. It was the help of these surveyors that allowed the cities and rural areas to be settled in those early day.
Technology has taken the output of detailed information of a land or building survey to a the next level. They work closely with architects, building designers, builders and engineers providing exacting information to build or renovate on a parcel of land. The level of detail means there will be no surprises!
The architect or building designer will be confident in their plans and costings for the build. The builder will be confident when he commences work on the build and the client will be confident that budget and deadlines will be met.
Surveyors work closely with their peers in the areas of architecture, geology, engineering, building and planning. Their role supports their goal of building structurally sound buildings or works without problems and delay – which can cause havoc on any build.
If you want to be confident that there will be no unforeseen problems on a design or build job a Surveyors should be the first person on any construction site, measuring and mapping the land.
These primary measurements are then used by architects to understand and make the most of the unique landscape when designing, and by builders and engineers to plan structures accurately and safely. As such, surveyors ensure buildings not only fit with the landscape but are able to be constructed.
It is a tried and trusted method by professionals to avoid costly delays on any build or renovation.
