Envivo Survey

Leave a comment

The survey was completed this week by Envivo. Although the section is mostly flat (43m long by 20m wide) it has a slight fall to the south, and to the east corner.

We need the exact contours in order to calculate height from boundaries, as well as to determine whether we will need to carry out any earthwork. Although the house itself is intended to be on piles (for fast erection and exchanging concrete with more carbon neutral timber)  (now concrete pad construction) we may look to level out some of the site using the soil displaced from the two water tanks that need to be buried rather than transporting and dumping elsewhere.
