Subdivision Design – Subdivision Proposal Plans

With extensive experience in the formulation and urban design of major landholdings coupled with a practical surveying based design ethos, plans prepared are both functional and financially viable to produce on the ground.

Detail and Contour Surveys

Norris Clarke & O'Brien surveyors can carry out Detail surveys of sites to obtain all relevant site information such as spot levels for contouring, location of buildings / structures / vegetation or natural features such as watercourses to aid in constraint sieve mapping and provide a base for the design of new buildings or infrastructure.

Natural Surface (Ground Level) Surveys

The survey and drafting department of Norris Clarke & O'Brien can prepare natural surface interpretations based on “best evidence” to assist in determining compliance with maximum building heights under Brisbane City Plan 2000.

Identification Survey / Identification Investigations

Norris Clarke & O'Brien surveyors can carry out Identification surveys of sites to accurately determine site boundaries, placing pegs in the corners of the site to identify the location of the boundaries “on the ground”.
