Topographical Surveys

Centara Ltd has the capability, equipment and resources to provide a comprehensive and accurate Topographical Survey of your works area to a level of detail that meets with your specifications and as a minimum to the TSA/RICS specification. At Centara our Topographical Surveying teams utilise the latest technology.

This technology includes Leica 1200 /Viva GPS GNSS Smart Rover Systems and Leica TCR1203/1205 and Trimble Robotic Total Stations, so we can capture topographical data to OS Grid and Datum or to your own Project Grid system.

Topographical Survey CAD drawings provide our clients with a current and accurate plan of your works area. Excellent quality Topographical survey information is integral to all stages of the project life cycle, feasibility, planning, design, contours, construction and handover. These surveys can be used for a variety of applications:

  • Architecture and Architectural design
  • Planning and Planning Applications
  • Greenfield and Brownfield Development
  • Landscape Architecture, golf course, park and garden design
  • Private clients or domestic works
  • Civil and Structural Consulting Engineering
  • Construction and Contracting
  • Utility construction works such overhead line and substation developments
  • Housing development
  • Mining and Quarry (Cut / Fill, Stocking out and Quantity Surveys)


A Topographical Survey supplied by Centara will provide you with a detailed picture of the land to enable design accuracy. We can produce a survey to record level information, buildings, road features, surface change features, drainage systems and specified boundaries. Survey Specifications can also be tailored on request dependant on your requirements. This data will then be converted to a digital CAD format, where our (or your) layering standards will then be applied.

Our surveys can be undertaken to any client specification or we can suggest one if you need help defining the full requirement or fit any budgetary constraint, as full TSA(The Survey Association Members, Centara always work to RICS and TSA specifications as a minimum.

In Summary our Topographical Survey Engineering Survey services include:

  • Basic 2D Topographical Survey to show site boundaries, building positions and levels
  • Full Detailed Topographical Survey in 2D or 3D to client defined, TSA or RICS Specifications, including surface type, levels, grid, contours, furniture, eaves and ridge, stations, utilities/services
  • Elevation Surveys or Photo Elevation Survey
  • Cross Sections
  • Stock Surveys
  • Cut and Fill
  • Verticality checks of steel work, concrete structures
  • Precise monitoring, Fa├žade monitoring
  • Establishment primary control including installation of Ground Markers (PGMS)
  • Establish main grid lines and level datums
  • 3D Laser Scanning (link to Page)
  • As-Built surveys post construction
  • Overhead Line Surveys and Ground line Surveys DTM


The final results will be a CAD drawing or drawings that will allow electronic identification of all the surveyed information. Final survey drawings can be supplied in hard copy and the captured digital information can be provided in 2D/3D in file formats such as DWG, DXF, DWF, and PDF. In house we have a dedicated CAD Bureau Services mapping team to deliver the survey findings.

Our surveying teams have experience of working within various organisations in the UK and worldwide.

We have provided Topographical Surveys within Public and Private Sectors. We have a vast amount of experience of working within National Grid High Voltage Substations for DNO's across the country as well as water sewage treatment works, Gas and Petro-Chemical Plants.
