One of the features that sets Dorset Land Surveying above its competitors is its resourcefulness and tenacity when faced with a survey task slightly out of the ordinary. As a company we are always prepared to put in that extra effort to ensure and guarantee complete client satisfaction. No matter how remote, no matter how awkward, no matter how adverse the prevailing conditions, we will collect the survey data to the accuracy required.
Restricted Access Surveys
Disused mine workings, tunnels, culverts, caves and manmade voids. Our trained access specialists will survey anything, anywhere. We have over 40 years collective experience of surveying in the tightest and most awkward spaces. It really is true to say that no job is too small!
Limited Travel Surveys
With growing awareness of Health and Safety issues it can be an expensive and time-consuming process to provide full and proper protection to access the full extent of many working areas. Cliff tops, unguarded retaining walls, flat roofs, steep embankments and quarry faces all pose problems when it comes to mapping their position.
Dorset Land Surveying has staff trained in ‘limited travel’ techniques which allow us to approach and work right up to the edge of such features with safety and confidence. Removing the need for expensive scaffolding saves both time and money. If you have a project that poses difficulties, then call us now and talk through logistics with a member of our specialist team.
Geomatic Tree Surveys
The impact of proposed development on established trees is of steadily increasing concern. It has become standard practice on most surveys not only to map the position of tree trunks but also to map the precise outline of the tree canopy. Larger projects may require tree tagging, a process in which we have a good deal of experience.
Marsh, Wetlands and Shallow Water Surveys
Many wet areas are not accessible by boat or open to survey by traditional hydrographical methods. We have a great deal of experience in dealing with projects which require the survey of such areas.
Typically: monitoring of beach profiles for beach replenishment projects; full flood plain survey including river bed for flooding calculations; survey of marsh areas for the location of ecological features.
