The Benefits of a Topographical Survey Service

What is a Topographical Survey?

A topographical survey, also known as land survey, is the process of scanning a site or piece of land to determine all the man-made and natural features. A topographical survey gathers spatial information that relates to a site and its natural and man-made features. Glasgow measured surveyors have the necessary expertise and equipment to distinguish all the site features, including physical boundary details, land features and property, in a construction site. We provide precise and helpful topographic maps to architects, engineers, building contractors, and homeowners to accurately visualise their site for planned development.

Whereas a topographical survey is a crucial process for successful construction outcomes, the process is always recommended for your project as it is usually required by law. Receive a topographical survey to have a clear picture of your land. With precise surveys, you will have a clear view of off-site and near-site features that may interfere with your project. Our surveys will help you determine the design and construction method to use. Glasgow measured survey company employs the latest 3D laser scanning technology and survey equipment that help reduce the risks of costly mistakes arising from unforeseen problems and land constraints.

What will you receive?

Receive detailed results in the form of scaled 2D AutoCAD drawings, point cloud data, or 3D Revit Models from our extensive and accurate topographical surveys. Our company delivers very accurate topo drawings that include all the required information needed to map a construction site.

The Benefits of Topographical Surveys

  • Topographical surveys provide an in-depth and accurate picture of the building or plot of land. This reduces the risk of costly downstream mistakes resulting from unforeseen construction issues. We have the most efficient and advanced laser scanning technology capable of capturing accurate data as well as measurements for your construction site.
  • Our reliable surveys enable one to understand, in detail, a land’s topography. A proper knowledge of the topography of land under and around any building structure is very important as it will inform the design process to avoid any impacts of the land on a planned project going forward.
  • Receive our comprehensive surveys that will provide you with final as-built 2D drawings to help you verify that the site was indeed built in substantial conformance with the applicable laws.
  • Conducting a detailed topographical survey helps reduce any potential costs on objects identified later in the course of a project, delaying a construction process.
  • In the case of a plot of land, a topographical survey is able to reveal any information that may be hidden from plain sight, such as the changes that have occurred on the land over time.
