Our Approach

The core of our approach is to “make haste but never rush”. Over forty years, CBH has refined the process of surveying by continually honing the method, and utilising the latest equipment.

With every job being completed to a comprehensive checklist, by experienced surveyors employing the cutting edge of new technology, our work is always timely and efficient, and we never miss a beat.

We push the limits of a surveying product; we were the first on our region with CAD, and then the first to incorporate digital photography. Currently, we are developing enhanced ways to measure elevation of buildings, and to scan tracts of land more expediently.

We have a long history of volume monitoring, watercourse and beach measurement, difficult construction setout, and presentation of contour surveys from residences to large plots of land and building complexes. Our planning capacity has a phenomenal hit rate, working well with planning laws and the constraints of the land to design the best possible outcome for the site.
