The Land Survey Process

Our land survey process has been refined and perfected throughout the years. Far surpassing basic legal requirements, our land survey process includes:


  1. Locating, verifying, and marking property corners;
  2. Installing stakes, paint, or flags with corresponding labels to property limits;
  3. Resetting and re-establishing any undefined boundaries;
  4. Confirming site plans with building designers/architects;
  5. Making notes on potential future encroachments;

Our Surveying Services

Underground Service Locating

Underground surveying services are a crucial part of most construction projects. Our underground detail surveys are undertaken using electromagnetic, Radiodetection, and GPR locating techniques ensuring we have the best possible chances to locate water and gas pipes, cables, and phone lines.

Boundary Survey

Owning a property means knowing where the boundaries are. The moment there are conflicting views about boundary lines, a landowner may request a boundary survey and land surveyors will have the skills, knowledge, and experience needed to accurately get the job done. Working with our team means having your boundary survey completed with industry leading technology by critical thinkers who can create evidence-informed results.

Contour Survey

A contour survey is the best way to quickly plot your land’s vertical and horizontal shape or layout. Understanding the land contours means visualising how water will flow across the property when it rains and where it will settle, potentially affecting soil damage and water flow effects. 

Having a Contour Survey is essential because it provides crucial information about the land. This comprehensive service is a critical step before commencing roads, buildings, railways, dams, and canals projects.

Drone Survey

A drone survey is a process of using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) equipped with sensors and cameras to collect data and generate maps or 3D models of a particular area. Drone surveys can be conducted for a variety of purposes, including mapping land and property, inspecting infrastructure, monitoring construction sites, and surveying land for agricultural or forestry purposes.


Engineering Survey

An engineering survey is a type of survey that is conducted to gather data and information about the physical characteristics of a particular area. It is typically used to assess the suitability of a site for a particular engineering project, such as the construction of a building, bridge, or road. Engineering surveys are an important step in the planning and design of any engineering project, as they provide the necessary data to ensure that the project is safe, functional, and cost-effective.

Engineering surveys can be conducted using a variety of methods, including traditional surveying techniques, such as the use of total stations and theodolites, as well as more modern methods, such as the use of drones and laser scanners. The method chosen will depend on the specific needs of the project and the characteristics of the site being surveyed.

Having a Contour Survey is essential because it provides crucial information about the land. This comprehensive service is a critical step before commencing roads, buildings, railways, dams, and canals projects.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a surveyor cost in NSW?

The cost of land surveying in Sydney begins at $170 per hour, however, these costs can vary depending on your land’s size, shape, and location. Among that factors that can influence the total surveying costs include:

  • Where is the location? The location of the property affects the price the most. One can anticipate higher fees if the property has a lot of inclines, trees, plants, or cannot be easily accessed.
  • How much is the land area? Size is a significant factor in calculating your surveying costs. 
  • What is the measurement and shape? Standard rectangular blocks are much more affordable to survey because bounds that cannot easily be seen or accessed are more difficult to assess and report on.
  • Are there other physical aspects of property? Expect higher surveying rates for properties in mountainous areas.

What Does a Land Surveyor Do in Australia?

A land surveyor uses various equipment to measure property boundaries, locate natural or artificial features of the land, and stake out the position of the corners and boundaries. This information is then mapped to create a property survey.

Should I get a boundary survey in Australia?

Most landowners rely on boundary surveys as security against encroachment disputes, however, they’re often needed by professionals who work with plans and designs for land subdivisions including engineers, architects, geologists, and town planners.

What Is the Difference Between a Land Survey and a Boundary Survey?

A boundary survey differs from a land survey in that a land survey is used to measure property boundaries and locate natural or artificial features of the land. A boundary survey may be used in conjunction with a land survey to map the property but is specifically used to mark the boundaries of the land.

Do I Need a Boundary Survey?

A boundary survey may be needed when there is uncertainty about a property line, during a property dispute, or where clear boundaries are covered by trees and other land features.

How do surveyors determine boundaries in Australia?

Sydney land surveyors determine boundaries using advanced technologies that include high order GPS, Robotic Total Stations, AutoCAD, and aerial and terrestrial scanners. Each tool is used to help calculate computations, map out measurements, and capture photos for documentation.

Because land buyers and owners often want confirmation of land boundaries surveys before purchasing, dividing, modifying, or building, a boundary survey is the best method of establishing property limits to clearly identify the metes and bounds of the land.
