We provide a full range of surveying solutions, covering the Auckland Region, and can provide an initial consultation, free of charge, an appraisal and estimate of costs, in writing, for any project. Some projects may be more complex and require more investigation than usual and a fee may be charged. We would let you know if this is the case.
We are able to prepare and submit resource consent applications for subdivisions as well as land use consents for earthworks, buildings and other activities, normally as an integrated consent process.
Once a site survey has identified all appropriate features we are able to carry out subdivisional design to obtain the best potential from the site. A thorough knowledge of the District Plans is required to ensure compliance and maximise results.
We have a detailed knowledge of the sites and can undertake their design as well as contract administration.
LAND TRANSFER SURVEYS
A Land Transfer Survey is required for all subdivision of land and includes the placement of survey pegs and preparation of appropriate plans for issue of new Certificates of Title. All our surveys are lodged with Land Information New Zealand digitally and all data searching is completed online with minimal time delays.
ENGINEERING DESIGN, OBSERVATION & CERTIFICATION
Detailed engineering surveys on projects such as road construction, drainage and water supply which requires the surveyor to play a major role. This includes initial concept, design, contract administration, construction observation and certification as a complete package.
A survey that identifies topographical details and land shape. Absolutely essential at the pre-design stage as it eliminates the risk of costly remedial work at a later stage. We have GPS as well as total stations to ensure accurate and cost effective surveying.
Site plans are required for most developments and it is essential for a survey to accurately establish the ground contours as well as building, trees and other notable features. Inaccurate or incomplete information can mean costly delays.
EASEMENT & LEASE SURVEYS
In these situations we make applications to Council and prepare the necessary plans to enable the registering of Rights of Way, water and similar easements and leases of land.
We are able to obtain any information on land - its size, ownership, zoning etc. We can also offer advice on its potential for development.
FEASIBILITY & DEVELOPMENT ADVICE
We can give advice on potential for development, including concept layouts, feasibility, cost analysis and time frames involved. A detailed site inspection will result in advice on the best and most economical method of developing your land. It will also identify potential problem areas, and reducing risk of complications at a later stage.
Often a surveyor is required for setting out buildings, whether due to proximity to boundary or unusual shapes and/or for vertical control. We undertake these surveys to ensure it is built in accordance with the design. Other surveys may involve setout and/or certification of floor levels.
BOUNDARY PEG RELOCATIONS
Only registered professional surveyors can legally replace boundary pegs. These may be required for refencing of a boundary, or maybe building in close proximity to a boundary.
Local Authorities require asbuilt plans of all new public services that are installed as part of a subdivision. We provide a service to carry out the field survey, prepare the required plans and certify on completion.
UNIT TITLES & CROSS LEASE SURVEYS
These surveys are used for multi unit developments and create alternative forms of Title. We can undertake both these forms of survey and preparation of suitable plans for registration.
