Statement and Capabilities

RE: Proposal for future survey work.

Thank you for taking the time to consider PDM Surveys to undertake your future survey and survey engineering work. Below is a quick breakdown of our business setup, capabilities, and a listing of our past projects and involvement can be found on our Latest Projects tab.

PDM Surveys is a Gold Coast based firm, servicing The South-East Queensland and Northern NSW. Employing the right people for the job is what sets us apart from a lot of our major competitors.

The range of survey work that PDM Surveys can undertake is as follows:

  • Engineering, Civil and structural setouts
  • Road setouts (including conformance reports)
  • Bulk earthworks set-out
  • As-constructed and Detail Surveying
  • Control surveying, Level runs, monitoring
  • Volumetric surveys
  • 12D model operations, 3D modeling for machine control
  • Quantity analysis and other specific required reports.

Transparency and value for money are two key values that we strive to achieve for our clients. We at PDM Surveys keep diary notes of everything that we do, when we submit an invoice these diary notes accompany that invoice. This is to allow complete transparency and justification for everything we do, giving the client complete peace of mind. Couple this with high productivity through the use of the latest technology and our refined methodologies puts a smile on our clients faces.

PDM Surveys has worked on a number of projects varying both in size and complexities. Some of the more major projects undertaken by PDM Surveys are listed on the next few pages for your review. PDM Surveys capacity, particulars and resources can be found on the last page.

I thank you for your time and consideration in this matter, and hope to do business with you in the future.  For any further enquires you can contact me personally on 0413 447 694 or via email at
