Whether you are buying new property, or you intend to build or renovate on an existing one, it makes sense to get to know it well before proceeding with your project to ensure that it is safe. One way to do that is by hiring seasoned environmental surveyors with the skills and tools to verify the safety and quality of the land. They are experts in environmental surveying, a practice that seeks to determine and understand how environmental factors can potentially affect construction and real estate developments. Likewise, they will find how your project can impact the environment.
Environmental surveyors can investigate your property that has been affected by hazardous substances. They can assess your site and help you plan its rehabilitation and reclamation. By assessing contaminated land, you can determine the level of threat to proposed or existing structures. Land can be affected if it is near or on a site that is currently or was used for waste disposal or industrial waste. In this case, the survey is conducted as an aspect of due diligence prior to any modifications or construction, so stakeholders can efficiently plan risk management strategies.
Environmental surveying can cover a wide array of other applications, including flood risk assessment, in which surveyors can determine how likely your property will flood. Environmental surveyors can be helpful in fire risk assessment and environmental screenings, too, especially if you want to make sure that your property is not damaged by undermining or susceptible to underground gas. Surveyors use a myriad of methods to determine the condition of your area, and they may use modern techniques, such as GPS and high-definition 3D laser scanning to produce accurate and detailed results.
When seeking environmental surveyors, consider professional land surveying services that can perform the other necessary surveys on your property, such as topographic, ALTA/ACSM, or boundary surveys. That way, you do not have to look further for other specialists, and you can save time in accomplishing the surveys that are necessary for your project. Rest assured, these surveyors will work to deliver accurate results on time to help with your decision-making and to ensure that your project can be finished within the agreed deadline.
