A rigorous measured land survey by total station and GPS is an excellent starting block for your development. Instructing a land surveyor at the beginning of the planning stage will help save time and money for the duration of your project. At Anglia Land Surveys Ltd we specialise in producing accurate topographical site surveys at a scale and level of detail to meet our client’s needs. We have a varied range of customers and our land surveyors frequently travel throughout East Anglia and the UK.
Typically our clients require a land surveyor for:
• Proposed housing development site survey; from individual plots to large scale projects
• Engineering design; from road planning, coastal defence to reservoir design
• As built measured surveys of existing developments
• Historical and listed building records
• Land Registry Plan submission and conveyance
• Plans for landscape architects and designers
• Accurate referenced maps for tree arboricultural surveys compliant with BS 5837:Trees in relation to construction
Surveys can be orientated to national or global coordinate systems or to established local coordinates. All our surveys are measured using the latest Leica Geosystems total stations, GPS systems and levels. Surveys are initially processed in our specialist surveying software package Atlas SCC and Leica Geo Office.
Layered drawings are then produced in AutoCAD, available in 2D or 3D DWG or DXF model and paper space. We currently use the latest Building Suite with up to date versions of both Autocad and Revit but back date our surveys to the earlier versions to ensure compatibility.
Drawings can be issued as pdf,film/paper copies, or digital CD/DVD or by email as required.
A typical topographical site survey plan by ALS would include the following detail; buildings, fences, trees, levels, surfaces, services and road locations.
From a measured land survey an accurate site area can be calculated. This is often used to determine the purchase price and scale of development permitted. Surrounding road information collected will allow site lines and visibility splays to be produced to satisfy the Highways Agency requirements.
Our surveys include detailed level information. This used as the basis for determining the floor slab levels, maximum height of proposed buildings, road alignment and landscaping features of the build.
We collect drainage information allowing planners to connect to the local foul and storm water sewage network and position buildings accordingly. Using Anglian Water records as a reference we measure the position and invert levels of inspection covers.
On completion of development the land survey plan can be updated with new buildings, roads, drainage and new boundary features. This data can then be submitted to the Land Registry for title deeds, to local utilities for sewer adoption and as verification to your client of the standard of workmanship built onsite.
