Starting off on the wrong foot can cost you thousands, so a contour and detail survey is not a step you want to brush over. Our processes reflect long-term sustainable practises of engineering design, at quick turnaround times to suit you, for the ultimate peace of mind. Here are the Contour and Detail Survey practises we can offer you:

Obtain search

We'll obtain search from Land and Property Information (LPI-NSW).

Perform search

We'll perform search from LPI-NSW SCIMS database, if required.

Existing residences

We can locate, measure and obtain levels of existing residences on subject lots, including finished floor levels (to AHD or Assumed).

Define boundaries

We'll obtain approximate positions and types of fences/walls along the foundations of the subject lot, and the boundaries of the subject lot itself.

Locate significant objects

Including retaining walls, banks, terraces, gardens, stairs, ramps, paving, swimming pools, substantial trees, and and other significant objects.

Locate existing services

We'll locate the position of existing visible services such as telecom, sewer, storm water, and electricity.

Disclose any issues

We'll disclose in our Site Assessment Report information on access problems and other issues you need to know about.

Sewer service diagrams

We'll obtain a copy of the sewer service diagram from Sydney Water, so you know the approx. position of the sewer main onsite.

AutoCAD and PDF

You'll get a digital copy in both AutoCAD and PDF formats.
