Extensions Near Boundaries

Extensions Near to Boundaries

When planning an extension near a boundary it's important to get it right.

Things may look simple enough but boundaries are not always where you may think they are.

Fence location is not necessarily a reliable indicator.

Also the clearance required from the boundary may vary dependent on the type, height and use of the proposed building.

Boundary Offset Survey

With a boundary offset survey the correct boundary location is established and then the desired or required offset is clearly marked via stakes, pegs, nails or screws dependent on the circumstances, enabling the various building contractors to accurately establish their works.

The complexity of of this type of survey will vary from one site to another as you can see in the two examples shown here.
