Quality information is required at the planning and design stages of building a new house. Quality information minimises risk and helps ensure that your new house is correctly positioned and will comply with local authority rules.
Our team of highly skilled professionals will ensure that your survey is carried out to the highest standards.
The following services may be required to ensure the project runs smoothly, please don’t hesitate to contact our team for expert advice on the appropriate service for your situation.
Topographical/Architectural Site Survey
This is a high definition survey of the features and contour of a site, typically we would produce a plan showing trees, driplines, houses, neighbouring buildings, services, spot heights, contours, legal boundaries etc.
GPS or global positioning system is a survey measurement tool that utilises radio signals from orbiting satellites to obtain 3D positions. BCL Surveyors utilise survey grade GPS systems when appropriate.
Our survey team will redefine your section by pegging the corners of the site. Pegs can also be placed along the line of any boundary or offset from any boundary line if required. Talk to our surveyors to discuss your specific requirements.
Construction Setout Survey
This type of survey involves visiting the site and accurately marking the position of buildings or other items in terms of the legal boundaries. A certificate may be produced to satisfy Council.
Height to boundary checks and Certification
Councils often require a Registered Professional Surveyor to check that buildings comply with their height to boundary, maximum height and yard requirements, a certification is issued if possible upon completion of this type of survey.
Removal of Limitations Survey
If your title is limited as to parcels a removal of this limitation is required before boundary positions can be confirmed. This type of survey requires a high level of specialist knowledge of the cadastral system. After consideration of all relevant spatial evidence the position of the boundaries is determined and lodged for approval (and issue of new title) with Land Information New Zealand.
