Development projects are all about location – and surveying gives us the location and topographical information to make real-world designs possible. The Chester Surveying team has extensive experience that enables us to deliver a wide range of land surveying services, including topographic surveys, scheme plans, setout and monitoring of projects, replacement of boundary pegs and small to large-scale legal survey outputs.

Our Surveying team has provided surveying services throughout the North Island of New Zealand, and more recently, for several large developments in Fiji. The Chester Survey team works alongside our other teams across the civil, structural, planning and fire disciplines. Having in-house technical knowledge in these closely-related fields allows us to rapidly deliver solutions that are tailored to our clients’ needs.

Because the technology, legislation and technical codes we operate under are rapidly evolving, Chester are committed to ongoing professional development and training of all our staff.

If you need surveying services for your project, please contact us.
