Terrain Surveys is my surveyor of choice. They are reliable, friendly and quick to respond to enquiries. The data we receive is exactly what we need to start designing our gardens in both 2D and 3D. I highly recommend them.

Our engineer who met the team on site was so impressed and full of positive feedback, they guys were very thorough.

We used Terrain on a very complicated quarry infill project, the site was covered with stockpiles and we needed to carry our a series of volume calculations to assess the materials still to be excavated, the material types in the different stockpiles and the void available for infilling. This was no problem for Neil and his team, responded to initial enquiry within the day, very fair price for an excellent job, great communications, very quick turnaround  and no issues when we added to scope of works – highly professional and friendly company very happy to recommend to anyone.

Steve Roper

Director of GDS Chartered Surveyors

Terrain’s 3D models are very accurate and they also supplied high quality 2D drawings. The Revit model will give the council a record which they can view at any time, so they will no longer need to revisit the site to take measurements. We are delighted with the quality of the surveying work on this major project.

We have worked with Terrain Surveys on many projects and they have always been responsive and customer focused, as well as producing high quality drawings and 3D models. We required a high level of accuracy for the scanning work at St. Vedast church, so immediately thought of Terrain.

Terrain Surveys Ltd. have recently completed a dimensional survey of the Roman Catholic Church of St.Mary, Cadogan Street, Chelsea. The survey provides accurate and detailed information for our practice to commence design work to enhance this historic church building. Terrain provided an efficient service for an economic price, with very little interruption to the life of the church during the site survey period.

Nigel Hursthouse

Retail Project Manager, Mace Group

Mace acting on behalf of Marks & Spencer invited Terrain Surveys to provide Dimensional Building surveys of several existing stores. These Surveys were required by a number of architects and designers as part of their extensive remodelling program.

All the surveys Terrain were asked to do were carried out efficiently and professionally by their surveyors, so as to cause the minimum disruption, often working while the stores were open to the public. The plans supplied were of a high standard of presentation and contained all the information we required.

After working with Terrain Surveys, we would certainly have no hesitation in inviting them to tender for any future projects where an initial Dimensional survey is required.

Tony Barnard

Senior Associate, HOK

Just a quick note to record my thanks for the recent work you carried out at the Geffrye Museum. As always your prompt response and helpful approach to carrying out the work was greatly appreciated by both ourselves and the client team on site.

Principle Partner at PHD Associates (Architects)

Terrain Surveys were highly responsive in supplying the point cloud and 3D model. The model was crucial to our being able to design and have accurately fabricated the steel frame. The building was twisted in plan and section and the 3D model allowed us produce shop drawings, so that when the steel arrived it fitted to within 5mm across the building and side to side. As the building is on a London Red Route it was crucial that the new steel could be fitted first time without any site amendments.

We recently commissioned Terrain Surveys to comprehensively survey a complex group of grade II* listed religious buildings designed by the Victorian architect G.E. Street, and the surrounding landscape. Clearly we required a very high degree of accuracy and careful attention to detail to support what will inevitably prove to be a difficult application for planning approval I have to say that we were delighted with the finished result. The survey was tremendously accurate, clear, well organised and thorough. It was also beautifully drawn and gave a true sense of the quality of the buildings that the drawings described.

Chris Trelfa

BSF Programme Manager, London Borough of Ealing

Following a competitive quotation procedure, Ealing Council employed Terrain Surveys to carry out a number of Topographical and Measured Building surveys required as part of their Building Schools for the Future project. These surveys were carried out in a professional and diligent manner. The information supplied was of a high standard and we would have no hesitation in requesting them to tender for any future related work.

Chris Barnes

Principal Regeneration Officer, Stevenage Borough Council

Happy with the work carried out, and given the competitive quote and speed the work was completed I won’t hesitate to include you in any future tender opportunities.

Ann Massatt

Project Manager at Rectory Lane Cemetery Project

Terrain Surveys were highly responsive in carrying out a survey of the wall around Rectory Lane Cemetery. Prior contact had been made with neighbours to arrange access and the surveyors were very friendly and polite when working on site. We were able to review the A0 sized drawings and use TrueView to inspect the 3D model, which has been invaluable for briefing restoration contractors.

Simon Murphy

Chartered Town Planner, Urban & Rural Planning Solutions

Terrain Surveys provided a responsive and competitively priced service. I was particularly impressed by their willingness to be proactive in discussions with the Local Authority and with their technically excellent input and assistance we were able to resolve a complex land remediation problem to the complete satisfaction of both the Local Authority and the client. I would not hesitate to recommend their services to other clients in similar situations and indeed my client will be calling on Terrain Surveys’ expertise again in order to demonstrate to the Local Authority that the re-graded land profile matches the proposed profile prepared by Terrain for my client’s planning application to meet County and District planning requirements and to resolve my client’s waterlogging and drainage problems.

This is exactly what we require in order to try to have some kind of sensible conversations with our neighbours; hopefully we shall be able to come to some agreement without resorting to legal proceedings. Meanwhile, we should like to thank you for your speedy response to our request for a survey, your even speedier completion of the results and your helpful interpretation of those results for us in layman’s terms. If ever we have the opportunity to recommend your firm, we shall be very pleased to do so.
