What we do
The people that need us – owners, architects, engineers and property portfolio managers say Adept more consistently delivers the professional results they require for measurement, mapping and legal solutions. This makes their projects easier to manage. The key is delivering on our promise and we’re pleased to help.
Site Context Analysis and Feature surveys for Town Planning requirements
We work throughout Melbourne and when it comes to surveys for planning applications, we are familiar with the varying requirements of each council. We can advise you on the appropriate scope of surveys required and provide plans suitable for application to council and/or data straight to your architect or draftsperson in 2D/3D formats.
Title Reestablishment and
You know where your fence is but do you know where the entitlement described in your land title actually is on the ground? Will this affect your improvement plans for the site? Do you have possession of all of this land or may others have gained rights or are occupying part of this land? We will provide clear plans and digital date as well as mark title for guiding works
Subdivision and Consolidation of land
Land and building subdivision is our specialty. Only a Licensed Surveyor can determine and mark your title boundary, subdivide or consolidate land, and create, vary or remove easements. We will guide you through the process and manage all interactions with council, or simply provide the plans for your project. Talk to us about your site and the order of statutory processes to maximise your gain and minimise costs and delays.
Australian Height Datum Levels for design and Flood Management
Want to build or renovate in an area close to watercourses? Are you in a Special Building Overlay in your local Planning Scheme and want to alter the building? You’ll need a Licensed Surveyor to authenticate levels in and around the site including the existing Floor Level. We can provide plans and correspondence to authorities on your behalf.
Application Surveys (Adverse Possession claims, correction of lot extents or errors in title diagrams)
Do you know or suspect that you occupy more land than is in your title?
Do you need to formalise ownership of land under your control or realign the lot boundaries between two lots? A Licensed Land Surveyor is an authorised person able to measure, map, and present information leading to applications and recognition of formal ownership (registered proprietorship) in these situations: talk to us about which situation you may be in and how we can solve it.
Measurement and mapping of remote/inaccessible objects
Don't have physical access but objects to be mapped but they are visible?
Is physical access to and measurement hazardous or limited to your staff? Talk to us about solutions with drones, scanners or direct reflectorless EDM (Electronic Distance meter).
Scanning and creation of vectorized floorplans and 3D models
Our hand held scanner can map spaces @ 40k points per second anywhere that a human hand can reach. So far we have used it very successfully in limited access (size, route or times) spaces such as schools, underfloor, roofspaces and indoor stockpiles where traditional methods are inaccurate, timeconsuming, lack detail or present occupational access hazards. Floorplans and cross sections form the bulk of use for the technology and we can quickly generate high accuracy, statistically and independantly verified vectorised floor plans suitable for immediate use in Sketchup, Revit, Archicad or similar modelling packages
Photogrammetry, 3D meshes and renders
We recognise that there is a time where photo realistic reality meshes and colourised 3D point clouds transcend the need to label typical survey point data acquisition and may be appropriate. With technology churn in this sector, we will concentrate on ensuring all deliverables fits a consistent 3D reference frame so no matter when and who you source complementary data from, the ease to which it integrates means no backward steps in your project. LAS, LAS, etc formats are easily delivered and we can convert to be readable in common packages like Recap, etc
Redevelopment of Strata lots or Strata boundary realignments
Do you have an old or inappropriate subdivision with excess common property? Is the membership of the body corporate interested in altering the shape and/or entitlements of lot holders? Are you aware of the costs or time involved?
We can map out actions that potentially provides more suitable lot arrangements or completely re-subdivide (SCA).
Feasibility studies and due diligence surveys
Are there hidden costs or issues with your development plans? What restrictions are there to the land use? Are the quoted areas in sales and lease documents/brochures correct? Contact us to address these concerns.
We can assist in the set out of building and structures from your plans including verification of the location and finished levels of the structures. We have many years experience in the setout of houses, units, engineered structures, multi storey buildings, and similar structures in a variety of locations around Melbourne and it’s surrounds.
