SITE PLANS - Also called 'Detail & Contour Survey'


A 'Site Plan' is a comprehensive survey of the physical features of your property including structures, significant vegetation, some services, site levels, landscaping, fencing, pathways, stairways, swimming pools etc to name just a few. It can be very detailed and varied dependent on the type of project. The 'House Location Plan' differs as noted below.


The Site Plan shows how everything is connected and where problems can potentially exist when making changes.

It's like having an encyclopedia of your property on one page.

All our Site Plans show features relative to the property boundaries, allowing for accurate design and a 'problem free' construction set-out.


Note: A full Site Plan may not always be required, so savings may be available to you. A 'Partial Site Plan' or 'House Location Plan' may be adequate for certain project types such as those shown below.

Please refer to the following as a guide only, bearing in mind that all projects are different. Ask us if you are unsure.
