There are various types of surveyors. For example, a surveyor who focuses on land development has the job title of ‘Land Surveyor’. If you are looking for land surveyors in Auckland, Taupo or Rotorua, we can help.

The role of a land surveyor, specifically, is to measure and map the shape of land usually for the purposes of land development, monitoring or environmental assessment. A land surveyor will gather data for civil engineering and construction projects so that accurate site plans can be drawn.

They will take a range of mathematical measurements to gather the information necessary to complete a detailed report and map of the land. It is also their responsibility to map out distances, heights, slopes and features which will allow architects and builders to design, develop and build on the site.

Surveyors are part of a fast-paced and technologically advanced industry as they commonly use specialised technology and equipment to record the environment. They will use this equipment to measure and capture data that will then be downloaded into specialised software packages once back in the office environment, that can then be shared with the client in multiple formats.

Land surveyors are the first professionals in the building process to calculate and chart the land on any land development project.

They work closely with other specialists in the building and land development industry – architects rely on the key measurements provided by land surveyors to maximise the landscape when designing, and engineers use the data to plan structures and the infrastructure that is required to support them.

Post the design phase, measurements can also help with information for the earthmoving and construction phases.

As land surveyors provide a multitude of services, costs can vary. Please reach out to us so that we can gather more information from you and provide a free quote.
