Topographical Survey and Ground Investigations
As part of preparing for a full application for planning, we organise the ground survey, also known as a site investigation (SI) which feeds into the foundation design, road and pathways, incoming services and utility layouts.
The level of detail and quality of information that is generated from ground investigations is important and will allow our team to develop a well-engineered design which is tailored to the specific ground conditions of your site.
An essential step in going from a plot to building your new home is to start with obtaining the correct topographical survey. It is important that the right level of data is captured as part of the survey, as this has implications for the project thereafter.
This information, together with any ground condition and soil analysis, is used to establish the correct foundation requirements for the house. With our knowledge, we can ensure that you get the right survey. We will discuss with you any special requests/considerations of unusual items as well as site access and security arrangements.
