Our Team

Our small but highly motivated team at Atkinson & Booy Surveys believe the attributes and values which have kept us in business for the past 50 years, are as relevant today as they were when the business was initially started.

As a team we operate within a set of values which we believe is how our customers would prefer to do business. We will always act professionally and provide the appropriate levels of timely communication back to the customer. Our dealings with you will always be respectful and we will act with integrity. This means that we will always be open and honest in our interactions with you, which may mean providing alternatives and suggestions which you may not have considered, or
bring to your attention possible opportunities for improvement to what you initially wanted to do.

We wish to be recognised by our customers as the surveying company of choice within Townsville and surrounding townships and shires, who provide to their customers true value for money
