Land Surveying techniques for accurate site measurements

The land surveying equipment varies from project to project. Some other factors that affect this decision are: 

  • Survey accuracy levels
  • Site access terrain and vegetation 
  • Deliverables requested and outcomes 
  • Where is the survey data used?
  • What is the survey data used for?

A typical land surveying project would involve the following tools and platforms: 

  1. A Surveying Total Station
  2. A GNSS/RTK Rover
  3. A drone and camera 
  4. Markers and surveying pegs 
  5. Tripods and stands 
  6. High storage devices and memory cards
  7. Redundancy equipment

Our team of surveying experts conducts an initial site inspection to determine the workflow and methodology to apply to the site area. This is in addition to the preliminary desktop analysis of the site location conducted beforehand. Based on these insights, we use a combination of surveying, laser scanning and drone technology to capture the required measurements and observations whilst onsite.

Capture, interpret and present site data with 3D visualisations

3D laser scanners, also known as LiDAR scanners save the raw data as point clouds. These point clouds consist of millions of data points which can be merged, manipulated, coloured and converted into different file formats.

The point cloud can be processed in CAD, BIM or visualisation applications depending on your unique project needs and outcomes.

From construction sites to warehouses and residential renovations, you can capture it all via our 3D laser scanning services in Melbourne.

Here are a few advantages of 3D laser scanning you should know about:

  • Quick and easy site data collection 
  • Minimum disruptions onsite 
  • Eliminate revisits
  • Easily detect issues and minimises risks 
  • Helps architects identify design errors 
  • Assists with asset management and condition
  • Real-time worksite inspections 
  • Visualize real world data in 3D Space

FAQs about Land Surveying in Ballarat

We have answered some common questions AEC clients have about our land surveying services in Ballarat.

We have worked with hundreds of builders, contractors and project managers to have an in-depth idea of the ins and outs of construction site surveying. 

We recommend you invest in a cadastral survey, a feature and level survey and a site analysis or contours survey to understand the terrain, define property boundaries, sort out land title related issues etc.

We need the client to provide us with a brief of the project and any supporting information (drawings/sketches) as to what surveys are required. We usually ask for these details from the client when they book a consultation.

We provide land surveying services all over Ballarat and the neighbourhood suburbs, including industrial sites, quarries and townships.
