SEAM Spatial merger creates one of the largest surveying companies in Australia

Leading spatial services provider, SEAM Spatial, today announced their strategic merger with Survey and Drafting Resources (SDR) and LW Survey Australia (LWSA). It’s a move that promises to shake up the spatial sector on a national scale.  

In merging the companies, SEAM says that it’s aiming to bring together the knowledge and resources of three key surveying companies under one roof.  

“By expanding into new industries and growing our capacity, more large-scale projects can work with a single trusted partner for all their surveying needs,” highlights Mick Harris, Managing Director of SEAM Spatial. 

An established cadastral, civil and mining survey company, the SDR team will strengthen SEAM’s presence in the Hunter Valley region – while LWSA’s expertise will boost capability in resource tenements, complex engineering set-out and pipeline construction. 

SEAM is confident that it will now be able to provide comprehensive surveying across all industries, anywhere in Australia – while also supporting green projects and helping traditional energy producers transition to sustainable solutions. 

“We’ve all collaborated closely for five plus years,” Mick notes, “and we’re aligned in wanting to develop our people and also do more in the renewable energy space.” 

With a team of over a hundred, the new entity is one of the most well-resourced spatial services providers in Australia – critical when the broader surveying industry is struggling with skills shortages and overwhelming demand. 

“The new SEAM Spatial is well-positioned to meet the growing needs of the construction, mining, oil and gas, infrastructure, land development and renewable energy industries.” 

Headquartered in Brisbane – with offices across Australia and New Zealand – SEAM Spatial’s cutting-edge technology and highly skilled team of specialist problem solvers provide advanced surveying services, monitoring and spatial solutions.
