Advice, services & solutions at every stage of the project lifecycle…

Strategy

We provide specialist advice and consultancy services to support your property investment decisions, whether it’s helping to identify and minimise environmental risks or finding the most appropriate and cost-effective geospatial solution.

Feasibility & Planning

Our innovative and expert team can provide a range of added value services during the early stages of any project. Accurate and up-to- date data at this phase and our ability to work across all aspects of a planning application ensures a single point of contact.

Design

For more than 50 years we have applied our survey expertise to complex infrastructure projects and large urban regeneration schemes, supplementing traditional techniques with new technologies such as drones, 3D laser scanning and digital monitoring.

Pre-Construction

Our considerable knowledge in the Property and Infrastructure sectors enables bespoke technical solutions that reduce risk, increase efficiency and provide cost savings. Major BIM and Rail projects have benefited from our unique application of these solutions.

Construction

By providing a range of invaluable services, including surveying with drones, the application of environmental and structural monitoring, and the use of construction verification, we are able to help reduce risk for any construction project.

In Use

Offering a wide spectrum of surveying services enables us to offer support and advice for the lifetime of a facility. Providing 'one-stop- shop' Technical Due Diligence also involves us as large portfolios or single assets change hands.

Integrated measurement and consultancy services to the property and infrastructure markets…we’re not just a Survey Company

As one of the largest surveying companies in the UK, we’ve spent more than 50 years providing a range of measurement and surveying services.

We provide the data that helps inform and underpin our clients’ plans. We measure and scan. We survey and record. We model and monitor. We interpret and advise. Combining our technical expertise with the latest equipment, we serve a broad client base that includes developers, architects, contractors, engineers, project managers, commercial agents, estate managers, investors and government bodies.

In a typical week, we could be consulting on a commercial property development, supplying Network Rail with track alignment surveys, laser- scanning and 3D modelling a heritage building or surveying using an unmanned drone.
