What is a Contour & Detail Survey?

A Contour and Detail Survey, often conducted by licensed land surveyors, is an essential process in the field of civil engineering and land development that maps the existing conditions of a land parcel. This detailed survey is essential for anyone looking to understand the nuances of their property, be it for residential, commercial, or industrial development. 

By meticulously charting the contour lines, this survey reveals the natural and man-made features of the site, offering a clear picture of the terrain’s elevations and depressions.

Purposes of a contour and detail survey:

  • Contour Mapping: It involves mapping the contours of the land, which are imaginary lines that connect points of equal elevation. Contours provide a three-dimensional perspective of the land on a two-dimensional map, allowing for the visualisation of the terrain’s shape, slopes, and elevations. This is crucial for understanding the natural flow of water on the site, potential flood areas, and the general topography.
  • Detail Collection: Along with the topographical information, a Detail Survey also collects information about natural features (such as trees, rocks, and water bodies) and man-made elements (including buildings, fences, and utilities) on the site. This comprehensive data collection is vital for planning and development purposes, ensuring that designs are in harmony with the existing landscape and infrastructure.

This type of survey is commonly used in the planning and design phase of construction projects, landscaping, and infrastructure development. It provides architects, engineers, and planners with the necessary data to make informed decisions regarding site layout, building orientation, drainage design, and other aspects of land development to ensure safety, compliance with regulations, and optimal use of the terrain.

Surveys are a Foundation for Project Planning & Design

Our Contour Survey services are designed to provide an accurate representation of your land’s topography. By capturing the variances in land elevation, our contour surveys lay the groundwork for informed decision-making in your project’s planning and design phases.

Our Detail Survey services go a step further by identifying all existing structures, visible services, and significant features on the subject property. From trees and buildings to fences and utilities, every element is precisely documented to aid in your project’s design and construction phases.
