A licensed surveyor provides certainty about the location and extent of your land, and helps protect you from boundary disputes
and expensive litigation.

completing the survey. This ‘reg25A’ certifcate is your legal protection.

A typical GPS setup may consist of a Leica Viva GS15 base station and rover system, although various other Leica GPS combinations may be used to deal with connection or range issues.
Engineering Surveying is the broad term used to describe the work of surveyors on civil engineering jobs. The role of an engineering surveyor is a lot larger than simply set out for construction of a structure and survey pick-ups.
