Site Survey Costs & Timing (incl. Marking Boundaries)



The costs for these various surveying tasks vary depending on the site conditions, age of the title, information available, type of land development and detail required.

As a guide, the following range should give you a general idea of what to expect. However, we price all projects individually:

  • Marking existing boundaries for either building or sale purposes - $1,900 to $4,500 range.
  • A site (topographic) survey - upwards of $3,000.
  • Certification to Council in relation to building position or site coverage - $2,000 to $6,000.



All of these tasks can take up to several weeks to complete so please don’t call us the day before you need the survey information or pegs in the ground. We need to research information and do some calculations so that the field work can be carried out effectively. We also need time to confirm the requirements with you and other consultants that may be working on your project.


Useful Tip

Obtaining a good site (topographic) plan or locating those elusive boundary pegs early in the building or development process will set your project up to run smoothly. Architects and engineers rely on our accurate record of site information to design the best solutions – helping you ‘make the most of your land’.
