Why Use a Surveyor?

Surveyors are Land Professionals

Surveyors are called upon at the very early stages of land development. Surveyors have the expertise to identify the key elements that will allow the land to be developed to greatest advantage. This is followed soon after by a complete survey to measure and define the detail of the land upon which all of the development will be designed.

Surveyors are also there at the end of the project. Surveyors survey the completed land development for compliance and certification, prepare the land transfer plans, and collaborate with the legal profession in the preparation of new land titles.

Surveyors hold a unique position of being able to see, understand, and manage the interaction of all of the surveying, planning, engineering, construction and legal elements throughout the development process better than any other professional consultants.

"The most impressive thing with them is their contact with the local council, and their ability to get on top of the work and get stuff surveyed off, and to the requirements of council. I'd definitely recommend them to others. Their service is excellent."
