If you want to build a new house, the architect often needs a design survey to start the design process.
Some information about the site is essential for a good design: the dimensions, area and slope of the plot of land, the exact location of structures and vegetation in the area, the location of surrounding buildings in the topographical area.
It is best for the client to refer the architect directly to the land surveyor for consultation.
The most common tasks that architects request from land surveyors:
Without an accurate assessment of the topography of the site - slope, unevenness - it is not possible to position the building, design the foundations or even comply with the height restrictions of the building zone. In such cases, the surveyor will produce a contour map. The contour survey can also be used to plan the surface drainage of rainwater.
The architect may request a full planimetric survey, including the dimensions of the side lengths of the plot of land with the highest possible accuracy, the buildings, trees, roads, vegetation, utilities, any road connections, etc. In many cases, the building permit requires an absolute height, that is, the height above sea level, which is also determined by the surveyor. In the case of “panoramic” plots, it is also good to know the height of the surrounding buildings, as this can be used as a basis for determining the height of the building required to ensure a panoramic view.
The survey can be carried out in EOV (Unified National Projection System), which is already used by most land registries. To put it simply, Hungary is laid out in a giant coordinate system, so we can give coordinates (X, Y) for any point - including, for example, the boundaries of plots of land.
If the land registry is already “computerized” using DAT (Digital Base Map), it is advisable to carry out the survey in EOV, as this will also show whether the fence is in the right place, thus avoiding future disputes or lawsuits. The final result of the survey is also a computer file that can be converted between the surveyors and the drawing editors used by the architects. Of course, the final result of the survey can be printed if required.
A geodetic survey is also essential for the design of utilities and roads, and where the terrain allows, the first step in landscape design is a surveyor’s plan.
Once the plan is complete, construction can begin.
