Topographical Surveys involve the production of maps and plans which are true to scale. The maps are created to exactly represent details of both the natural and built environments. Topographical surveys can record the condition of buildings for conservation or historical records. It can detail surfaces & topography for engineering works and record the condition of projects at different stages making an accurate record of a building for quality control and certification purposes. The survey can establish floor, ceiling and window levels as well as producing plans, sections and elevations.


BCBD is called upon to create topographical surveys for a huge variety of project types, sectors and for a wide variety of clients, and at all scales. Typical amongst these would be Architects and Engineers who require a topographic survey, defining the topography and site features across a location that is to be developed or changed in some way.


Whilst we often describe ourselves as LAND SURVEYORS, our land survey work extends to the sea bed and even underground. Data can be gathered by remote sensing from the air and also from satellites. Our profession is now generally described as GEOSPATIAL to encompass all of these aspects but also to emphasize that we can provide data management, analysis and many other value-added services over and above the traditional topographical survey plan.


We keep ahead of the field with the application of new technologies to ensure we collect data in the most efficient and accurate manner, therefore providing the most detailed land surveys. Read on to discover the extensive range of methods that we use to conduct our topo surveys and the technologies we utilize to present the data extracted from our land surveys.


BCBD produce maps in-house to the scale and format requested by our clients. Outputs include 2D and 3D Plan Drawings Sections, profiles and volumes.


A boundary survey is an important component of pre-construction due diligence. The boundary survey establishes the perimeter of a property as it relates to the legal description of a site.


BCBD surveyors will review recorded documents and do a physical inspection to determine the physical boundary of the site. Will super-impose the digitized Mouza Map with the site layout and determine the plot-wise distribution within the boundary. A record of survey will be filed with any relevant agencies as required to help determine if there are any encroachments on or over the site boundary. If this is the case, BCBD can provide the expert services to resolve these issues by establishing an easement or boundary line agreement.


Construction Staking, also known as a Site Layout Survey, is the process of interpreting construction plans and marking the location of proposed new structures such as roads or buildings. Construction staking is performed to ensure a project is built according to engineering design plans. The staked reference points guide the construction of proposed improvements on the property, and will help to ensure the construction project is completed on schedule, on budget and as intended.



New constructible projects typically begin with an Engineering Design Survey, requested by the civil engineer in charge of the project design. These surveys include ground level topography, and the location and documentation of visible evidence of existing improvements.


During the design survey, BCBD Land Surveyor works closely with the civil engineer to gather the as-built existing site conditions in and around the proposed project, and determine all of the controlling elements to be used as the basis for the project design.


The survey can be performed for a wide range of civil projects, including the design of roads and bridges, Drainage Basin Studies, Water Quality Improvements, Stormwater Improvement Projects, and Sanitary Sewer Retrofit Projects.


Engineering Design Surveys incorporate elements from land, hydrographic and geophysical surveys. Our surveyors can work closely with engineers and planners to develop survey drawings that will be incorporated into engineering design plans.



The purpose of an Engineering Design Survey is to ascertain a range of key elements, including:

  • condition of the adjacent streets
  • location of visible improvements and easements
  • field measurement of elevations (Topography, Cross Sections, Contours, Profiles)
  • sidewalk gradient
  • presence of driveway access areas from the streets to the site
  • evidence of electrical/gas/sewer/water utilities servicing the site
  • improvements and conditions around the perimeter of the site
  • evidence of underground contamination, dumping or site access from an adjacent property
  • whether the site is buildable



The purpose of the As-Built Survey-also commonly called a Physical Survey-is to show the property AS IT IS BUILT at a particular point in time. While a pre-construction survey is performed to document conditions prior to construction work being performed, the As-Built survey is conducted to show the current state of the site at various stages throughout the duration of a project. It also serves as a close-out document to verify that the work authorized was completed to plans and in compliance with all relevant standards and regulations.

An As-built survey builds upon the base map of a project and includes research at local agencies, ground-level topography data, and the documentation of visible site improvements. The advantage of this survey is that the new Base Map can be updated to show the current conditions of the site.
