Our Yarra Valley based land surveying practice has continued to grow since its inception, and the establishment of Thomas & George Pty Ltd in 2008 established this land surveying business as a company in its own right. Our surveying practice predominantly offers land surveyor services to the Yarra Valley, Lilydale & Outer Eastern metropolitan Councils of Melbourne (Maroondah, Cardinia, Knox), together with our nearby northern neighbouring communities of Kinglake, Marysville, Murrindindi & Noojee Regions. Projects can be considered for all areas of Victoria, but locally based surveyors typically have a knowledge of specific local issues, that externally based consultants may not be familiar.
Thomas & George P/L have employed survey students during their study years at RMIT, supporting and assisting their development into quality surveyors or survey technicians. Thomas & George P/L also provide work experience opportunity to high school students to experience surveying, and our Lilydale Office location now makes this work experience opportunity more practical to be able to facilitate.
Thomas & George Pty Ltd are dedicated to the provision of a safe working environment & have developed a comprehensive OHS Safety Manual & Policies, to assist our staff in achieving this requirement. Our staff are trained in First Aid as appropriate. We continue to undertake regular OHS training as required.
Our practice, being located on the Peri-Urban and Green Wedge fringe area of Melbourne at Lilydale, has resulted in a good understanding of the specific issues that affect development of Urban Residential, Peri-Urban and Green Wedge/Rural properties, and the particular land surveying requirements specifically associated with such areas.
