Land and Measured Building Surveys in the South West of England
Building on the increasing number of clients in the South West, 2008 saw the opening of a new office based between Exeter and Plymouth, undertaking all aspects of land and measured building surveys, throughout the South West.
The South West office has built it’s own loyal local client base, who have been delighted to discover an alternative provider of excellent quality land and measured building surveys.
As well as working on some major projects in Devon, Cornwall and Somerset, such as Newquay Aerohub, Ensleigh Former MOD site and The Duchy Hospital, Truro, we have undertaken many smaller land surveys and measured building surveys, for local clients and clients as far away as Australia.
Land surveying in Devon and Cornwall in particular, does present some more challenging terrain than we usually see in Worcestershire and Gloucestershire, with lots of Devon banks to ascend and plenty of steeply terraced gardens. On some projects where the land area is small and access restricted the attention to detail can be critical to ensuring that the consultant has all the necessary data to guarantee that the new build or replacement dwelling will fit within the restrictions the site has.
We know that overhead wire heights / positions, overhanging trees positions and spreads, ridge and eave heights of neighbouring buildings can all be crucial information, yet most of our competitors do not gather this data.
Even more alarmingly we have seen drawings, which appear to be land surveys, but in reality are OS mapping with trees and a few levels added. Do not design a house based on OS mapping, which may be several meters larger or smaller than the reality. For further information on OS mapping accuracy click here.
