Our surveying professionals work alongside engineers, architects, local councils and developers alike, to ensure your project is a success. Magellan Space is focused on working around the needs of the clients, from construction companies and builders to corporate developers and councils. Our comprehensive understanding of Australian Standards® and commitment to quality means your project will be subjected to the highest standards from start to finish.
Our team of civil and construction surveyors have completed major construction, infrastructure and development projects across Queensland including FIFO® projects. At Magellan Space, we understand we all have a moral obligation to protect the environment in which we work and rely on, leading to a strong environmental practice throughout our work. Protecting the earth is protecting our future and inspires us to lead the way in this field.
At Magellan Space, we cover a diverse range of services including land subdivision and mining exploration to tunnel works and engineering construction. Our survey specialists also cover precise monitoring, digital terrain models and underground services. These skills have translated into the completion of some very notable projects across Queensland, including the Student 1 & FV no.1 in Brisbane city, Vue on Broadbeach, Gold Coast and the Oceanside private aged care facility on the Sunshine Coast. We take pride in our ability to provide a comprehensive range of services and our team of professionals that make this possible. All our professional surveyors are licensed and registered surveyors who have shown excellence in their field and are all legally authorised to perform land or cadastral surveying or work with engineers in identifying any potential design or structural issues.
Surveying and land surveying is the measurement and mapping of our surroundings. By using specialised technology and surveying equipment, Surveyors are able to accurately identify the position of an object either natural or man-made. This technology can measure almost anything from the earth to the sky, buildings and even the sea floor. Surveyors are often the first people involved for any type of land development, providing information about land boundaries and topography. Engineering surveyors are able to review plans to identify any potential structural or design issues. Their measurements provide the building blocks for architects to design around the landscape and engineers to plan structures accurately. They are essential in the planning and design of projects across a range of industries.
There are many types of surveying, with land surveying, also known as cadastral surveying being the most well known, used for any land developments. Engineering surveying refers to the type of work surveyors perform in building and civil construction, which is an essential step in the engineering design stage. Mining surveyors are involved in the planning, construction and operation of open cut and underground mines while Geodetic surveyors take precise measurements that track the movements of continents and monitor sea rise and earthquakes. Hydrographic or Bathymetric surveying measures the sea floor and is essential in the planning of construction of docks and harbours and ensuring the safe passage of ships. Aerial surveying or photogrammetry and remote sensing rely on data provided from images or sensors that pick up wavelength bands such as infrared or ultraviolet. This technique is used to map large areas and seek anomalies that would otherwise not be visible by eye. Topographic surveys provide in depth details about the surrounding environment regarding location and variability in height of any number of features, essential in the design of roads, buildings and other new infrastructure.
