Archidata, Specialist Land & Building Surveyors, Steyning, West Sussex


A fantastic opportunity has arisen in a niche surveying company with an immediate start for the right candidate.

Archidata is a small but specialist Land & building surveying company in West Sussex primarily providing data for architects in the form of plans, sections, elevations and topographical land surveys.

Deliverables range from basic 2D plans to complex three-dimensional BIM models all drawn up with an architectural flair which sets Archidata out from the crowd in terms of quality surveying products for the construction industry

Not only do we work closely with many regular architects across the south of England but we also work with a number of landscape and garden designers, public schools, developers and of course the general public.

We find that our work is generally in the south east of England but also work has taken us as far north as Glasgow, West to the Caribbean, and Southeast to The Netherlands and every day brings exciting new challenges.

Probably our most exciting project to date was the setting out and construction of “The green and pleasant land” set in London’s 2012 Olympic opening ceremony.

As you would expect from a quality surveying company, we also provide setting out, monitoring, area surveys, land registry compliant plans, volume calculations, boundary disputes, verified view photos and CAD services

We have invested heavily in the latest hand-held 3-dimensional laser scanning equipment together with GNSS GPS and total station theodolite technology not to mention the computer hard and software required to process this complex data.
