FEATURE AND LEVEL SURVEY
During the process of designing a new development, it is essential to complete a Feature and Level Survey to identify all onsite and neighbouring features. These features can include drains, trees, fences, adjoining properties and etc. This information is used by designers, architects and councils to determine whether your design can be approved and built on your land.
Why do I need to do a Feature and Level Survey early on the building process?
- Plan your building design with confidence
The features on your land have a large impact on what can and cannot be built on your land. As a result, it is important to do your Feature and Level Survey before you start looking at the design of your construction project to gain a clear insight into the requirements. This will consequentially help designers and architects design the building with confidence that it will meet the legal requirements.
- Be prepared
Feature and Level Surveys are using throughout the building and design process. They contain important information that is used by designers, architects, builders as well as councils. By completing this survey, you will be prepared to present this valuable information to the stakeholders of your project during any stage of the construction process.
- Avoid costly errors
Completing this survey in the early stages of the construction process is an essential step to avoid costly errors and disappointment that can hinder the construction process in later stages. By identifying all relevant features as early as possible you can ensure you are meeting all legal requirements before construction begins.
What are the key features that have a bearing on the design and construction process?
Features of your property and even its surroundings will be examined thoroughly during the process of completing a Feature and Level Survey. The features that influence your building plan or design include:
- Ground level
- Land contours
- Existing structures
- Adjoining features
- Features on the street
- Utility services
