A Contour and Detail Survey is crucial for building and land development projects. It provides essential information about features on the property and nearby, helping architects and planners make informed decisions.
- Elevation levels and contours based on the Australian Height Datum (AHD)
- Connection to official land markers and rough boundary outlines
- On-site survey for detailed features
- Mapping of visible utilities like water and gas lines
- Spot elevations across the property
- Information on significant trees with trunks over 0.2 meters in diameter
- Notes on retaining walls and changes in elevation on adjacent properties
- Locations of existing and neighbouring buildings, including their floor and peak heights
- Road and curb details near the property
- Establishment of a site-level reference point
This type of survey is often required for successful development applications and helps ensure your project goes smoothly.
Note: Before beginning any extension, we engage a professional land surveyor to determine each external wall’s location precisely. While many builders rely solely on tape measures for this step, we view this survey as a form of insurance—a secondary verification to guarantee your home is built exactly where it should be. This proactive approach minimises potential conflicts with neighbours and local authorities.
