Surveying Services - The Degree of Difference


Services for Councils


We are a modern company offering the best combination of the latest technology with technical expertise and experience.






Boundary Peg Location - for fencing and building

Over time, pegs can become obscured or removed.   Sometimes you can measure from adjacent boundaries, scrape away the soil and find them.   If not, we use a metal locator to find adjacent secure reference marks from which we accurately replace your boundary pegs.

When fencing or building near a boundary you must protect yourself by first finding out exactly where your boundary is.   This will avoid disputes and costly removal of structures.

Protection of Survey Marks - offsetting

Protection of Survey Marks - offsettingLocal Authorities and Contractors are bound by legislation to make certain that existing survey marks are protected or replaced during construction of roading and services.

We provide an efficient service, locating those marks at risk.  This is done by studying the relevant plans and locating endangered marks by GPS survey.

Following this we can either confirm their safety or provide a new survey for lodgement with Land Information New Zealand.

GPS Data Capture

We have the latest Leica System 530 which enables position fixing within 20mm anywhere - even without a clear 'line of sight' to that point from a survey control point. This latest GPS technology helps us to map large areas.  This might be complete detail and contours of a single site, or locating a feature type over a large area such as all the power poles in Tauranga, or the road between Tauranga and Katikati.

GPS is also used for other tasks such as:
