Site Surveys are an important part of my consulting team. Not only do they produce high quality plans, they are fast, reliable, good value and also nice people. Site plans are critical in ensuring that issues are identified early and provide designers the information they need to produce effective plans.


As a builder I have required the services of a surveyor many times over the years. However, since finding Julian and his team at Site Surveys, I will not use anyone else. They are reliable, professional, efficient and competitively priced. Julian and his team are a pleasure to deal with and extremely knowledgeable in their field. I couldn’t recommend them more highly.


It has been many years since your team formed working relationship with my development company. The best part of your company is your professionalism during the work, in particular  some demanding ones with tight and limited time frame. We have appreciated that from you for a long time and will have no hesitation to recommend to our developer colleagues in time of need.
