Our Story

Valley Surveying Company Limited (VSC) was established in 1999 by Stu Watson.

VSC is a friendly Lower Hutt firm providing expert surveying and land development solutions for individuals, land development and building industry professionals, and organisations in the Greater Wellington Region.

We provide a comprehensive range of surveying services to protect our clients from surprises and legal complications and allow them to maximise opportunities for financial returns from their land. We work with a wide variety of clients from private individuals requiring a boundary marking for fencing purposes to bigger companies developing retirement villages or large subdivisions.


We have developed a strong reputation for delivering high quality, cost effective land surveying, land development engineering, land planning and resource management solutions.

Subdivision Consent Applications are a major part of our work. We work collaboratively with you, your architect, solicitor and other parties to ensure the necessary consents are applied for at the outset, ensuring time and cost savings.

VSC clients range from home owners, to builders, developers and investors, to local councils. Many of our clients return with repeat business.

Remember: Just because it can be designed does not mean it can be built!


We believe that land is more than a place to build things; it is where we live, work, and plan for our future. A development should enhance your resource and environment not destroy it – no matter the scale.

Our aim is to make land development dreams a reality and make the process as stress free and enjoyable as possible for you.


We will do our upmost to ensure that your project is completed on time, on budget and without any complications.

I have used Valley Surveying Company exclusively over the past couple of years on my projects and have found them to be very professional, responsive and above all great people to deal with.
