If your project requires precise dimensional set-out, we have the
experience and track record to assist. We have set out some of the
most demanding structures in the region from bridges to high-rise
buildings and subterranean pipelines. Our surveyors are up to it.
We work with you to obtain a clear understanding of the project requirements, check the information supplied by the principal and provide the most accurate set-out positioning utilising state of the art technology.
The biggest mistake people make on the big projects is assuming that the design plans are correct. At the outset we spend time verifying the plans and quantities. It is very important to gather accurate information on behalf of the contractor early on. This is invaluable as the project progresses and issues arise, as they do. Often the contractor has their own ‘on site’ engineers and surveyors and we specialise in overseeing the entire project and ultimately producing ‘as built’ plans to record exactly what was built. These are essential to the success of any project and ongoing maintenance of it.
When you work with us you know that we are with you every step of the way. Listening, calculating and setting out, recording information and delivering results. We pride ourselves in turning up when we are needed to avoid costly delays.

Land Survey Process
When we carry out a site detail (topographical) survey, boundary pegging, building set out or certification of boundary clearance for daylighting or site coverage, the pegs or plan you see are a small part of the job.
Before anything can be done in the field, we must establish the location and research relevant boundary and height datum information. We need to search the title and old plans, and note any restrictions such as easement restrictions for right of way or service connections. That’s one reason that we need plenty of warning that you need help.
We then need to carry out precise calculations and upload the information into our equipment. With this done, we can be really efficient on site, where information is set out and gathered before returning to the office.
On our return to the office we need to carry out the further calculations, quality checks, drawings and certifications that are required. These certifications are often required for Land Information NZ and Council.
There is much more to surveying than a field trip with some specialised technology and equipment.
