The site investigation services that we offer include:
Site Feature Surveys
Feature and level surveys of the site and surrounds to provide a digital terrain model and/or an Autocad drawing. Site Feature Surveys are typically required by Architects, Building Designers and Drafters to assess the site and produce architectural drawings. Site Feature Surveys are best undertaken prior to commencing the architectural drawing process. We use precision robotic surveying technology to ensure the accuracy of our surveys.
Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) Assessments
BAL Assessments are typically required when building or extending, where the site is within a Designated Bushfire Prone Area (DBPA). A BAL Assessment includes a site inspection and recommendation of the Bushfire Attack Level at the proposed development site, classified in accordance with Australian Standard AS3959:2018. BAL levels include 12.5, 19, 29, 40 and FZ. BAL assessments are best undertaken at the time of soil testing and survey.
Bushfire Management Assessments (BMA)
A BMA considers the risk that a bushfire poses on the site and provides recommendations to mitigate this risk. BMA’s are typically required when building or extending, where the site is within a Bushfire Management Overlay (BMO) under the Victorian Planning Scheme. BMA reports are generally to be submitted to the local Council at planning permit stage. Depending on the zoning and overlays applicable to the site, the BMA may include a Bushfire Hazard Site Assessment, Bushfire Management Plan, Bushfire Management Statement or a Bushfire Landscape Assessment. All of our BMA reports include Autocad drawings with aerial imagery.
