Surveying for Councils

Councils engage us on projects when they need timely support for
their infrastructure projects. From topographical surveys of rivers, reserves and coastlines to
legalisation surveys for roads and reserves, we provide the support.

Our surveyors are experienced in infrastructure work, having an expert understanding of all level datums, data capture and presentation. We are well experienced in the status of various land holdings held by local and regional authorities.

Working with Councils

When carrying out work, Council’s have an obligation to control costs and the process, to protect the ratepayers. We are able to competitively price projects and provide a level of service that Councils and their Consultants expect. Our health and safety and environmental policies stand firmly behind our operations and this is paramount to those we work for, particularly in this space. Our work in this arena includes surveying rivers, stop banks and wetland areas for regional Councils; coastlines, slips and coastal erosion areas for District Councils; parks and reserves for District Councils and legalisation surveys for District Councils.

Process and Prices


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.
