Here at FiveRivers, we know that confidence is everything – which is why we’re committed to delivering quality specialist topographic surveys as part of river, wetland and ecological mitigation works.

With a dedicated team to undertake initial and as-built topographic surveys, setting out and Aerial photogrammetry surveys, you can rest assured that you’re in safe hands with us: our qualified team will be by your side, right through from concept to the completion of your project.

It’s wise to choose one company to deal with all elements of your project, from upfront surveys through to completion – it’s only in this way that you’ll be able to know that everybody is on the same page, at the same time, allowing works to finish in a prompt and cost-effective manner.

What is topography?

Topography refers to the features of an area, both natural and artificial. Mountains, rivers, roads and elevation are all elements of topography. Topographic surveys take into account the scale of land and its defined boundaries, providing an accurate depiction of a site in the early stages of design.

Why are topographic surveys necessary?

The data gathered from topographic surveys can help to inform the designs and plans for your scheme, and will also help you to visualise what your project may look like upon completion, giving you extra confidence around its design. We also undertake the setting out and as-built surveys for our schemes to make sure that works are completed as per the designed locations and levels, and to provide information for the Health and Safety File upon completion.

How is a topographic survey carried out?

Our expert team will head out into the field to gather level survey data using our Trimble S5 and R8s with STC5 controller. We will then process your data using N4ce software and autoCAD to manipulate and format the data for ease of use. We ensure accuracy of the survey through internal quality assurance checks with the data made available in DWG, DXF or any format you require to enable you to view and access the information collected.
