As Worcestershire’s longest established company of specialist Land and Measured building surveyors we have helped to shape the way many areas of the county look. Part of the attraction to being a land surveyor is the feeling that you are contributing to the regeneration of an area. After 20 years of land surveys in Worcestershire we think we have helped in some small way to rejuvenate at least a few areas ! One location that has recently undergone a major transformation in the centre of Worcester is the Diglis Basin area. It is very hard to spot similarities from when we were first on site in 2002 to how it looks today.
The boat yard buildings around the basin were particularly interesting to measure and full of character and characters. We have often wondered if the hand held Disto measuring device that a surveyor dropped into the basin whilst undertaking the land survey was ever discovered when the basin was drained !
This was also a site where the weather intervened and we could not finish the topographic survey until the flood waters had receded and where we encountered the very helpful Premier Timber and Builders Merchants, who supply us with our survey station pegs to this day.
