Topographic Survey

Line Design Technology Limited has an experienced team of professionals who have the necessary skills to deliver detailed and exact topographical surveys.

Often seen as a crucial first step, a topographic survey will help project designers to see the exact location and elevations of all the natural and man-made features within the parcel of land being surveyed.

Due to the precise nature of a topographic survey, it is crucial that the data collection work is carried out by an experienced professional with an eye for detail.

This data can then be transposed into 3D plans that will play a vital role in planning the proposed development.

Below are details of some of the projects we've worked on over the years

Total Station

Newtown Bypass 11kV & 33kV Diversions

Newtown Bypass

As part of the Newtown bypass scheme LDT were engaged by Scottish Power to survey all the existing overhead lines affected by the new bypass.

Detailed topographic surveys were conducted using total station and RTK GNSS.

This enabled the design engineers to determine which overhead lines needed to be diverted and which lines could stay.

By using the established control on the project, the lines could be merged with the digital model of the proposed bypass to facilitate clash detection.

This approach enabled the statutory clearances to be maintained to the new road surface and ensure safe operation of the network.

Once all the surveys were completed and a report produced outlining the lines to be diverted, LDT were able to use the digital model to plan and set out the proposed diversions.

This flexible approach enabled the various stake holders in the project to come up with collaborative solutions to the need for undergrounding the existing network.

Cwm Llwm - Topographic Survey

Cwm Llwm Topographic Survey

LDT were approached to undertake a topographic survey of an old dilapidated property in North Wales.

The Site was in a remote location and many of the buildings were in a dangerous state of repair.

The entire site was surveyed using our mapping drone to produce a detailed 3D model of the site.

A traditional survey was also conducted using our total station and RTK GPS.

The utilities on the site were traced and recorded as part of the survey.

Once all the data had been collected a detailed set of plans were drafted and submitted to the client.

By using a combination of traditional survey and cutting-edge drone mapping, a comprehensive assessment of the site was produced.

The documentation would serve to assist the architects and planners in developing the site.
