ASES Land And Topographical Surveyors

Topographic surveys serve to show physical structures, man-made and natural, including trees and vegetation, buildings, boundaries, surface changes and ground levels.

ASES have experience in carrying out accurate cost effective, Topographic Surveys for a wide range of sectors and clients, including, Architects, developers, private individuals, building contractors and designers, adapting the level of detail required to suit the client’s needs and budget. Surveys can range from back garden surveys, which enable planning applications and landscaping work to entire streetscape surveys that incorporate underground utilities.

Robotic Leica instruments and Laser Scanners allow us to accelerate the survey process and with the combination of reflector-less technology ensures measurements are possible remotely and safely.

We are flexible with the delivery of our data , drawings can be co-ordinated to local/arbitrary grid or by means of our supplied GPS, RTK rovers we can fix the survey to the Ordnance Survey national grid and level datum..

A topographical survey is used to map the physical features of an area of land incorporating natural and man-made features, such as buildings, boundaries, drainage and vegetation.

Topographical surveys are often presented in 2D plan or 3D model formats to accurately represent the existing site.

The collected data can then be used for various design and development intents, such as engineering and construction projects.

A topographic survey is essential in any project, especially those that involve mapping an area or determining its boundaries.

At ASES, we only implement the latest technology and have experienced surveyors to ensure comprehensive, accurate and error-free surveys.

A topographical survey is an essential tool when assessing any area of land. It provides detailed information about the terrain, including elevation, vegetation and other natural features like water bodies and rock formations.

This information is invaluable for determining accurate boundary positions when combined with OS map data. Topographical surveys are also used in planning for conservation and recreation areas.

In addition to providing valuable data, they can help identify potential hazards or existing infrastructure that might impact a development project.

Without a topographical survey, it would be difficult to accurately assess an area of land and make informed decisions about its use. Therefore, if you are considering any type of development or planning project related to a specific area of land, it is important that you commission a topographical survey first before proceeding.

Tech advancements, notably laser scanning and survey software improvements, have revolutionised the survey process. They've increased accuracy, efficiency, and data analysis capabilities, allowing for more comprehensive and precise topographical surveys.

The cost of a topographic land survey is directly proportional to the size and density (vegetation and infrastructure).

Complex sites may require a site visit by an experienced surveyor to accurately access methodology and the most efficient instrumentation for the task.

Laser scanned Topographical surveys reduce site time considerably and are well suited to traffic/live sites with minimum disruption to the daily operation of premises or the public.

Typically used for

  • Utility Surveys
  • Drainage Surveys
  • Boundary disputes
  • Level and volume surveys
  • Tree Surveys, Arboricultural Surveys
  • Waterways/ flood risk
