Surveys are generally made on the occasion of a division of property (often followed by a mutation), a dispute between neighbouring landowners or as part of an application for planning permission.

At the request of architectural firms, individuals, entrepreneurs, governments, etc., we carry out field surveyings with high-tech equipment allowing us to establish fully detailed and very precise plans.

Implantation is the process of establishing benchmarks that will enable the establishment of structures (e.g. buildings, roads, etc.) while respecting the plans of the architect and engineer.


The boundary survey (the essence of our business) is a contradictory process in which we determine, by means of outward signs (boundary marks), the boundary line between two contiguous parcels.

When going through a boundary survey, the "amicable" solution is highly recommended because it is cheaper and especially faster for both parties.

Even when the dialogue between neighbours is somewhat difficult, the surveyor will try in every possible way to reconcile them so that the survey can be accomplished as soon as possible and that the costs resulting from this operation are shared.

Steps of boundary survey:

- Measurement of the property and looking for signs of limitations (boundary marks, fences, hedges, walls, etc.)
- Searching all the documents necessary to verify the external signs (old survey plans, deeds, road maps, cadastral plans, etc.)
- Consultations with neighbouring landowners,
- Acceptance by all parties of the new boundary plan, setting the boundaries in accordance with the parties through boundary marks.

If the parties do not want to give in, it is the judge who will decide, establishing a "legal boundary." In this case, the judge will decide the division of costs as well.


Every owner has the right to divide his land, whether it is built or not, provided that a permit is granted.

Concerning the division of the parcel or the creation of an allotment, the owner must appeal to a surveyor who will conduct a preliminary survey and establish a basic plan for the deed of division. The intervention of the surveyor is required as part of an allotment permit.


Every owner that has an enclosing wall, has the ability to make it joint in whole or partly, through an acquisition of joint ownership. The two neighbouring parties become joint owners of the adjoining part of the wall.

The acquisition of joint ownership is generally based on the value of construction of the wall or the desired part.

This notion of joint ownership is important: you do not own your side of the wall, but are co-owner of the whole. When you build a wall on the boundary line, it is important to first contact your neighbour to take the steps to share construction costs prior to the start of the project.

The surveyor has the prerogative to realise a report of joint ownership.

These reports will take different points (the coordinates of the various parties, the alignment of the wall or part of the wall, and the possible loss in value).


Our missions range from simple field surveys to surveys for constructions (roads etc.)

We also survey existing buildings, particularly when these buildings are of important dimensions and the original plans are no longer available (e.g. churches, apartment buildings etc.).
