The 4 Most Common Land Survey Types

by nicola on July 3, 2017 in Blog

Sydney builders and developers usually rely on one of the most common land survey types for their construction project (whether residential or commercial).

Because of the importance of construction, there is a need for accurate and fast surveying. This is valuable in proper planning, compliance to standards, avoiding legal issues and ensuring continuous progress of the project.

Professional land surveying usually includes the following:

1. Boundary survey

This is the first that comes to mind when we think of surveying. It is about determining the property lines and corners. This way, developers can accurately know the boundaries and the scope of the project.

This type of survey is almost always a given in every surveying task. It demands accuracy and precision to avoid legal issues and for proper planning. It can also be included in the surveys that we’re about to discuss below.

2. Construction survey

The field of construction and surveying has been continuously evolving. High rises, large scale volume earthworks and large subdivisions (with up to 1,000 lots) are common projects today.

Specific surveying types are needed for these kinds of projects. For instance, bulk earthwork and stockpile volume surveys are important in excavation and material movement. These are common in large scale residential and commercial construction projects.

In general, construction surveying also includes the accurate set out of grid marks, floor slabs, footings, penetrations and columns.

3. Topographical survey

Surveyors also examine the ground contours and the natural and man-made structures on or slightly below the earth’s surface. This information is vital in creating the base map for the design of new roads, bridges and buildings.

For road and bridge construction, professional surveyors take advantage of advanced robotics and CAD technology to deliver precise and timely surveying solutions. They perform both the initial area inspection and large-scale detail surveys. They can also assist with registration of final boundaries of the client’s project with all the government bodies.

4. Subdivision survey

Residential property surveyors also assist in dividing a larger piece of land into units. These units might be allotted to residential, commercial and industrial use in a sizable land. For residential areas, these units are allotted to families and individuals.

Subdivision surveys also assist property developers in creating the ideal subdivision plan. The resulting Strata Scheme will then guide the proper assignment of value to each unit.
