Land Survey Services

Topographic Site Survey

We offer topographic land survey services that are uniquely customized to ensure you receive a survey plan that meets all your design and permit requirements. At Elevate our topographic site plans are constructed to satisfy the unique requirements needed by architects, engineers, consultants across the varying municipalities in both the Greater Vancouver Area and the Fraser Valley.

Topographic land survey services are typically for the following purposes:

  • For demolition purposes
  • For new construction purposes
  • For addition and or renovation purposes
  • For land development purposes
  • For re-zoning purposes

Building Location Certificate

Building location certificates are a common service used by clients looking to purchase or assess a potential property. They are used often instead of purchasing title insurance to satisfy the bank’s mortgage requirements. These land survey plans typically show all existing buildings on the property along with their proximity to the property lines. Along with the buildings and property lines the plan is also used to show existing charges on the property such as Right of Ways, Easements, and Covenants. Often these documents help potential buyers and property owners to assess potential encroachments and or charges on the property that could influence land values and or transactions. At Elevate Land Surveying we are trusted licensed land surveying professionals who have provided these services in various municipalities across the Lower Mainland.


Air Space Plans

Air space plans are used in more complex projects and are typically used to separate sections of a parcel volumetrically. They are often used in larger mixed-used strata developments to separate varying interests and allow developers to retain certain parts of the property for future use. We often find that as these types of survey plans are a relatively new concept that developers are best served to consult an experienced Lawyer and professional land surveyor prior to finalizing the framework of a development.  At Elevate Land Surveying our land surveying professionals are qualified to play a key advisory role to a developer while designing these types of complex developments. Our land surveyors are experienced in helping to finalize the developer’s vision by providing air space plans that meet both land title office and municipal requirements.


Building Construction

We provide all the survey services needed for both commercial and residential new construction:

  • excavation layout and elevation benchmark

  • Forms certificate and Non Encroachment Certificate
  • Grid line layout for larger residential and commercial projects

Property Line Survey

A BC Land Surveyor (BCLS) is the only provincially legislated and qualified professional to help re-establish your property line. At Elevate we are qualified to offer services to locate and mark up your property line and corners. If your property corners are missing we offer services such as a posting plan which allows us to set legal property pins on your property corners.


As-built Surveys

All plans are certified and approved by a BCLS, which ensure that final plans meet the high standards set by your local municipality.
