I am Wayne T. Bainbridge, the director and chief surveyor, personally responsible for every project.

Starting out as a surveying assistant for E Edmondson surveys in Penrith, I quickly moved into roads and sewers, setting out housing developments. From there on to structures for apartment blocks, multi-story car parks and industrial buildings. I spent a few years in utilities then back to muck, pipes, concrete, masonry and steel. Years spent interpreting and implementing construction design drawings and specifications. Feeding back new site conditions, value engineering and recording information with design and cost implications.

This experience I bring to your back garden topographical survey and in the same week I could be providing flatness analysis on a lift core, so that engineers can evaluate and decide to retain or demolish. On site, I know what is relevant, where to increase the detail and how to present the data so that it communicates effectively with the end user and the layman.

Start your project with the best possible information.
