Land survey work is either transferring the ground features onto a plan (topographic survey) or transferring the features from a plan onto the ground (staking/setting out).
State of the art Leica total stations, GPS rover, and distometer.
LSS for processing raw data and AutoCAD for the final editing of the plan and presentation.
Ballpark estimate for a half-day survey is £400 and a full day survey £750 (plus travel/overnight if more than one day is required). These prices are just a guideline and may increase depending on the size and complexity of the site and the detail required, both of which will add time to the field and office work.
After consulting with the client concerning the specifications and the level of detail required we provide a firm quotation which includes the survey, the presentation of the plan and any elevation drawings required.
Land Survey (Topographic Work)
This can be carried out on any site where it is possible to walk over the ground or through the undergrowth and where there are reasonable site lines.
The survey can be carried out to any specification required although we use our experience to know where more points are needed to represent the ground features accurately.
All plans are to Ordnance Survey coordinates +/- 10mm.
Clarke Consultancy does not use a scanner so it only provides simple elevations showing roof ridgelines, eaves, windows, doors, and thresholds. If ornate detail is required, then we would recommend you use a more specialized survey company.
Setting/staking out of pitches, roads, paths or buildings can be done to an accuracy of +/- 5mm.
