Why is Consulting Surveying so Important?

Why is Consulting Surveying so Important?

Developers or investors frequently come to us with a vision of how they want things to turn out – the big picture. Investors and developers have skills and intuitions that make them great at what they do, but they don’t always know all the nitty-gritty details of all the things that go into developing properties in particular areas.

This is why consulting surveying services are so crucial. There are so many factors to get your head around, and it requires a team with multidisciplinary perspective as well as a holistic focus to make sure all avenues of possibility are taken into account.

At Arnold Development Consultants, we aim to find that perfect balance between constraint and opportunity.

 Why is Consulting Surveying So Important?

Here are some of the crucial services provided by our surveyors

Property Boundary Surveys

Property boundary surveys involve:

  • Redefining and marking boundaries for urban and rural land
  • Amendment of title and applications to amend title
  • Subdivisions within developed areas in combination with creation of easements, leases, covenants and restrictions on title

Property boundaries create obvious points of tension with neighbouring property owners, leading to unforeseen legal ramifications as well as potential construction miscalculations. It’s essential that a fully trained and equipped consultant sorts out such issues before development goes ahead.


Land Subdivision and Management

Our consultants are experienced experts in providing:

  • Project management
  • Planning and development strategy
  • Feasibility studies
  • Negotiation and liaison with relevant authorities and community groups
  • Engineering, road drainage, and sewer design
  • Completion of plans for registration of subdivision


Our wealth of experience in Queensland (over fifty years) means we have the networks and the contacts to effectively negotiate and communicate with community political interests. We can provide strategies that minimise potential legal hassles and political disruptions that might balloon development costs


Engineering Surveys

The team at Arnold Development Consultants are experienced in providing engineering surveys including the precise setting out of major components including:

  • Sewerage set out
  • Stormwater set out
  • Water main set out
  • Reclamation set out


Why You Should Employ a Land Surveyor Prior to Purchase

To add the greatest value to your land development project, you should engage the experts at ADC prior to purchasing. Investigations conducted prior to purchase can refine the understanding of what properties would make the safest investments for the purposes of a particular development.

For example, it might be the case that a developer floats the idea of ten potential properties, and our consulting services identify that only two of those are appropriate for the development. This information can then be used to identify alternative properties, or to adjust the investment strategy to best match the practical constraints with the aspirations of an investment opportunity

To add the greatest and highest value to a property development, you need a team of experienced multidisciplinary professionals who can sort out the finer details, while you focus on the “big picture” strategy. With over 50 years’ experience and strong community and governmental understanding, ADC is a one-stop shop for your surveying and consulting needs. Don’t hesitate to contact us today!
