"I've now had a chance to take a look at the survey drawings in detail and I would just like to say thanks very much for an excellent job. The abundance of information is astounding. I look forward to working with you in future."

Topographical Surveys

To ensure our surveys are accurate, HLS use modern non-contact surveying technology which enable us to record data that would otherwise be inaccessible.

Our Topographical Surveys provide an accurate representation of both natural and man-made physical features, allowing key decisions to be made relating to the development of the site.

Our surveys will provide you with:

  • The location of services above ground.
  • Level changes.
  • The type, size and position of trees with true canopy profile.
  • The position of all structures within the site.
  • The position of neighbouring properties with eave and ridge heights.
  • The route and level of watercourses, drainage systems and sewers.
  • Other important information, which may help or hinder any potential development.

What can you expect from us?

Our aim at Hampshire Land Surveys is to provide you with a clear, easy to read, accurate survey. All our drawings are layered with corresponding colours and line-types to ensure everything is clearly legible. Annotation is sized according to the required scale of the final survey and positioned away from detail, a legend is also provided to help you decipher anything we have had to abbreviate.

A senior surveyor is appointed at the beginning of the survey to ensure that there is consistency from start to finish and that the client is always kept up to date with the progress of the works. Preliminary drawings can be issued earlier for priority areas, depending upon your requirements.

Final drawings

The data collected on site is downloaded directly to a computer and processed using specialist software. This information is then used by our CAD technicians to draw and finalize the final drawings. The finished files can then be supplied as:

Hard copies

The completed survey can be printed on paper or stable film (colour or monochrome) using our Hewlett Packard Designjet 800ps plotter.

We can print the following sizes: ANSI A (A4), ANSI B (A3), ANSI C (A2), ANSI D (A1), ANSI E (A0).

Electronic copies

A wide variety of electronic drawing formats can be sent via e-mail directly to the clients CAD Section along with compact disks (CD-R), in DWG, DXF, MossGenio format.
