Company Profile and Mission

In 2007 owner and Managing Director, John Gray set up Vision Survey with the ambition to become the foremost authority on permit to dig control in the UK. Beginnings were simple, a second-hand Royal Mail van provided transport to different sites around Heathrow and London where John would issue permits. Perseverance and dedication allowed him to forge strong relationships with many clients, and the company began to grow.

Fast forward to today, we have diversified from permits and now offer a range of survey solutions that cover almost any construction need. These include topographical surveys, laser scanning, underground utility detection as well as many others.

From one, we now have over fifty dedicated staff members. We are proud to be continually involved in the largest civil engineering projects which include Tideway, HS2 and Hinkley Point to name a few. Check out some of our project case studies.

As one of the leading survey companies in the UK, we are focused on improving the construction industry by embracing innovation and technology. We work with our clients to complete projects on time and safely. One burst water main due to digging with incorrect permits or inaccurate information can leave a community without services. You could say that we keep the water running and the lights on for towns and cities across the UK.
