Case studies

"We have used McCracken Surveys for a variety of projects including the subdivision of rural land and the survey work associated with building high density residential apartments.

We are continually, pleasantly surprised, how their expertise will find a common sense solution which will save money and free us from the stress of delay. We are given time frames that are kept, they are responsive to our queries and will return calls promptly.

McCracken Surveys has the respect of local bodies and the ability to work with them in such a way as to eliminate potential bottlenecks.

Dave McCracken is an outstanding professional with integrity, we enjoy dealing with him and would highly recommend him and his company for all surveying and associated engineering services. "

To whom it may concern,

I have undertaken a number of survey and subdivision projects with McCracken Surveys since 1998 (if not earlier). I have found Dave and staff to have always been professional and courteous throughout these endeavours – some of which have been quite challenging. His knowledge of our District Plan and the intricacies of local government have been always current and detailed.

Beyond working with his firm, in my capacity of research and policy development in regard to contaminated sites in New Zealand, I have found Dave to be always interested and helpful in this matter – using his industry body, the Institute of Surveyors on occasion as a vehicle for discussion and development and always being keen to discuss potential changes.

My local community has been developing a significant recreational facility for the public and Dave and Linda McCracken have been tremendous in their support – both private and business-wise. This demonstrates a high degree of ‘social responsibility’ and shows a caring and community-minded ethic.

I do not hesitate to recommend McCracken Surveys.
