Site Surveys :-
One of the most critical visits to site is carried out at site survey stage. This has many benefits and where possible, the site survey should be carried out as early as possible.
For the purpose of design, a site visit will assist in determining the dwelling orientation in order to maximise potential solar gain.
The site survey will also dictate where the most suitable location for the entrance and the percolation area is.
A site level survey will also provide information in relation to gradients, adjoining buildings, site features such as drains & ditches and other ancillary items which must be considered at design / planning stage.
At Encore – Consulting, we carry out our own site topographical surveys, site assessments and contour drawings using a Topcon GPT-7000 total station.
