Professional Topographic Surveys

throughout the UK

When you need an accurate topographical survey of your property, choose SGS Surveys Ltd. From our base in Leeds, our land and building surveyors carry out a range of comprehensive surveys, detailing your property and land using the very latest technology. Our topographical surveys provide detailed descriptions of site features, such as walls, steps, trees, and buildings. Using Leica tool stations, GPS systems, and other equipment, we create an in-depth digital terrain model of your land.


Our aim is to ensure that each topographic survey can be easily understood, which is why we use coloured and annotated drawings to make the process simple. Our maps can be created in A1, A3, and A4 formats.
