Construction and Engineering Surveys South Africa

Construction and Engineering Surveys anywhere in South Africa call 0810432004.

Engineering Surveys refer to the various surveying tasks that are done on a construction site in support of engineering needs. As construction surveyors, we gather data to enable planning of construction activities. These various stages of building and construction require some survey measurements and output.

We assist in activities such as design of a projects, collecting data enabling sewer line designs, storm water designs and the design of the physical dimension of buildings and civil structures.

Our expert skills also help in the design of elevations and levels of structures in building and construction projects.

Professional engineering surveying in the construction phase means accurate setting out of design elements. This refers to the actual placing of structures on the ground, placing correct levels on structures and marking out positions of each civil structure or building. Therefore we ensure accurate positioning, making sure the design shape and size is achievable.

Typical Projects For Construction and Engineering Surveys

Our services offer excellent solutions to dimensional aspects of engineering projects of various forms

Construction of Roads and railways – topographical surveys for design, as well as setting out of road curves and routes. We survey through-out the project directing levels for different layers and ensuring compliance with project specifications

Construction of Bridges and Civil Structures

Redshadow Engineering Surveyors provide accurate surveying services for the construction of bridges and other civil projects such as tunnels and pipeline projects

On site surveys for power station activities – the setting out of steel structures, civil structures and other buildings in the power station construction projects

Dam surveys – setting out and monitoring surveys

Similarly, we perform surveys for recreational facilities. Such surveys enable the planning and design of recreational facilities and well as game reserves

Alignment surveys for such equipment like overhead cranes. We therefore make use of specialized equipment to ensure the crane rails are accurately erected

Products of Our Surveying Companies

Engineering Surveying Companies work hand in hand with civil engineers and other engineers in the construction phase of civil projects. Engineering surveyors obtain and process data for the design of earth works projects and others such as roads, bridges, railway, shopping malls and land development.

Our land surveying consulting firm uses top instruments and software to produce maps.

These maps show ground shape and size. Our products include diagrams, plans, land outlines, contours, man-made as well as natural features of an area with accurate relative positions.

Full time engineering surveyors use equipment such as Total Station, GPS, automatic and dumpy Levels in their day to day measures. Our equipment and tools undergo regular calibration checks to re align for top results.


Surveyors also go by the name topographic surveyors, if they are surveying for land for detail maps.

They are also known as Geomatics surveyors. Therefore we are a Geomatics company in as much as we are topographic company.

Our team has the following skill set-

Maths calculation skills such as trig maths.

The ability to understand drawings and make conclusions.

Logical reasoning

IT skills and ability to learn software

Problem solving

Attention to detail

Topographic Surveyor Consultancy

Topographic Surveyor Consultancy, for all engineering, construction and civil site surveys all over South Africa, call 0810432004

A Topographic surveyor, also known as an engineering surveyor, is responsible for precise ground terrain measurements. Apart from demarcation of property boundaries and identifying them physically, surveyors help design engineers with relevant data such as contours and position of natural man made features of a site or portion of land

After taking accurate ground measurements, surveyors produce unique contour maps of the surfaces of sites which is useful for various functions

  • Engineers use contour maps to design civil structures such as drainage systems like storm water drainage or sewer drainage
  • Design of any platform such as a football pitch, sport tracking field where slopes may be required
  • Generally, design of any slope related project
  • Town maps and regional maps
  • Routes such as roads and railway design
  • Civil and Construction design projects

Operations of a Topographic Surveyor Consultancy Firm/ Engineering Surveyor Consultancy

The most important aspect of topographic surveyor work is to accurately determine the points and their respective distances and angles. Traditionally, such information will appear in a field book, the surveyor’s field book which have to be recorded in the form of field notes.

To achieve this, the site surveying processes will include, among other things

Setting up accurately measured bench marks for reference

These bench marks will have positions in the horizontal and vertical dimensions

Every other detail measured on site, will be referenced to these bench marks

Common detail that surveyors pick include

Streams, buildings, milestones, streets and any other natural or man-made features present in the
