BME Topographic Surveying

Topographic surveyors gather data about land elevation points which are then illustrated as contour lines on a plot. They measure horizontal distances as well as differences in elevation and direction. The survey plan establishes vertical and horizontal control and any difference in elevation or slope distance. Survey data is collected regarding the natural features of the land as well as any man-made modifications. This information is mandatory for contractors and home builders or anyone in construction planning to build in a particular area. You may have seen survey technicians working on the road as you drive by and notice a person looking through an instrument on a tripod. These surveyors are highly skilled individuals with many years of experience and advanced training. BenchMark Engineers has the best reputation for quality topographic surveying to help private and public property owners planning to build on their land. Our skilled survey field technicians will complete a two dimensional topographic survey which will clearly illustrate the contours of the land. If there is a stream or brook and any wooded areas, they will be noted on the survey. Existing utility lines, street lights and electrical boxes will be evident on the survey as will any One Call markings and pipelines. After the topographic survey is completed, your technician will review the results and answer any questions. You can be confident that your survey will have all the details you require to complete the job according to specifications.
