Topographic Surveys FAQs

Topographic surveys prevent costly assumptions about site size and constraints. Accurate measurements aid in planning, ensuring a smooth and cost-effective project development. 

According to the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) standards, the accuracy level depends on the scale of the project and the band it falls under. For example, a high accuracy topographic survey (band D) requires hard details to be accurate by +/- 10mm and soft details by +/- 25mm. Whereas a low accuracy topographic survey (band H) requires hard details to be accurate by +/- 125mm and soft details by +/- 250mm.

A professionally produced topographic survey serves as a legal document defining property boundaries. Architects, civil engineers, and planners rely on it for informed decision-making in design and project management. 

A topographic survey maps the boundaries, features, and levels of a site, laying the foundation for its development. It includes details on manmade and natural features and constraining factors like adjacent buildings and highways.
