Topographical Contour Surveys for Design

Contour Surveys also known as Topographic Surveys or Detail Surveys are required before designing any dwelling or structure. CBH provides the most comprehensive contour surveys so that your architect or designer can effectively optimise your site. Whether you have a vacant block, a knock-down rebuild project or you are simply making extensions, our survey will put you in the picture for:

  • Height Data & Reduced Levels
  • Overhead & Underground Service Lines
  • Neighbouring Roof Lines for Shadows & View Corridors
  • Site Areas
  • Comprehensive Photos from critical vantage points.

CBH can also economically setout your dwelling once it is designed.
