The results of a feature survey can be used by your designer to conduct their work and are also often needed for relevant council applications.

Land Subdivisions

Property Subdivision in Melbourne

Land sub division is a term that refers to the act of dividing up an area of land into smaller sections where multiple lots can be developed. At Stacey Surveying, we provide professional assistance from start to finish with subdividing land and building in Melbourne. Together with our experienced subdivision team, we engage with a licenced land surveyor who will work closely with you to ensure your property subdivision project proceeds smoothly.

Why Subdivide?

One of the greatest benefits of subdividing land in Victoria is that it can be a great way of boosting your profits. With Melbourne’s increasing growth and demand for housing, subdivision of existing land is vital. At Stacey Surveying, our highly trained and experienced subdivision team can guide you through the processes. We use the latest equipment and technologies to deliver the best subdivision services in Melbourne.

What Steps Are Involved in the Subdivision Process?

Land subdivision in Melbourne involves three steps, which are listed below:

  • A planning permit must be granted that allows for subdivision to take place. The planning permit will detail the general parameters and conditions that must be met for full approval.
  • A formal plan of subdivision must be prepared by a licensed surveyor and certified. The subdivision survey plan must comply with the planning permit.
  • A statement of compliance is issued for the subdivision, detailing evidence that it complies with all planning permit requirements.

What Issues Must Be Considered Before Subdividing Property?

Before going forward with the subdivision process in Victoria, you’ll need to address and manage a number of issues. These can include subdivision overlays, consent from owners, legal agreements, and building surveying input. You’ll also need to take into account the various subdivision costs in Victoria.

Site Analysis Plans

Site Analysis Surveying in Melbourne

As part of town planning applications for subdivision, the council requires that the survey show all properties within a 50 metre radius of the construction site. This site analysis plan ensures that the proposed development fits in with the surrounding neighbourhood context and provides a complementary feel. At Stacey Surveying, we can provide site analysis surveying in Melbourne for clients who need to get their projects approved by the relevant authorities.

Comprehensive Plans

Our site analysis plan services are comprehensive and highly detailed. We provide height details on all properties shown in the site analysis and much more. This means that architects can draw full street-scrapes for town planning submissions. In addition, all properties are located using the theodolite, ensuring a high level of accuracy.

What is a Site Analysis Plan?

A site analysis plan is a plan that’s used to gain an overview of a site and its context, including any development constraints or opportunities. Site analysis looks at features such as structures, pipes, roads, landscaping, lighting and more to allow for good site planning.

What’s Shown On a Site Analysis Plan?

Photos, locations and a solar traverse are shown on each plan, ensuring a full response to Clause 55 of the planning scheme. Please see our Resources page for an example survey.

Why Are Site Analysis Plans Necessary?

A site analysis plan is often necessary due to council development requirements, with the plan helping the council to assess a proposed development. These plans are also vital for planning a development in terms of landscape features and orientation.

Monitoring Surveys

Monitoring Survey

When older buildings start to shift and crack, it is not always in the owner’s best interest to start from scratch. Often, a more cost-effective solution can be found by taking a close look at the problem and determining if repairs are possible. At Stacey Surveying, we can undertake a very precise monitoring survey for any property on a monthly, bi-monthly or half yearly schedule.

We pride ourselves on carrying out each and every monitoring survey with the highest attention to detail. While we’ve assisted with a range of clients and projects, one of our most notable monitoring projects is the ongoing quarterly survey of the famous Melbourne landmark, the Banana Alley Vaults on Flinders Street.

What Information Can a Monitoring Survey Provide?

During our monitoring surveys, we determine the direction and magnitude of any building movement. This information can provide a good indication of where and how repair work should be conducted. We can also track movement over time to identify whether the problem is worsening.

When is a Monitoring Survey Necessary?

Monitoring surveys are required for buildings and other structures that are experiencing movement or showing signs of movement. Common structures that need monitoring include bridges, dams and retaining walls.

How Much Do Monitoring Surveys Cost?

The cost of a monitoring survey can vary depending on the specifics of a building and the required frequency of surveys. To obtain an accurate cost estimate, discuss your requirements with our team today.

Building Set Outs

Building Set Outs

When the time comes to begin building your new residential or commercial property, it is necessary to have complete confidence that the plan you have on paper is what gets built. At Stacey Surveying, we offer building set outs that help determine the viability of your plans and ensure they can be brought to life as they should be. Using either nails in stakes or paling fences, the setting out survey procedure involves setting out the building lines to make sure the property is built in the correct location and with accurately dimensioned walls. Each line is clearly labelled for ease of construction.

When Are Building Set Outs Necessary?

A building set out survey is necessary when building any structure, from small homes to large commercial high rises. They’re also needed when building a road, tunnel or bridge, or when adding an extension to an existing structure.

How Does a Set Out Survey Help Builders?

Building and house set outs in Melbourne assist builders by providing them with the legal boundaries they have to work within, minimising the risk of disputes arising later on. A set out survey also allows construction workers to build exactly to the plan.

Other benefits that come with using land surveying drones include significant risk minimisation and the ability to survey locations that were otherwise inaccessible.

Data collected by the aerial survey drone is produced in various formats. Common types are Autodesk Recap .rcp, .rcs, .pts or .e57. We can also overlay contours or DTM (Digital Terrain Model) and an accompanying orthophoto to your existing AutoCAD dwg file.

Our data is presented at a resolution of 1-2cm per pixel. If required, we can provide higher resolution scans for picking up fine-detail structures such as building facades.
