About us

JBW Surveyors’ client focus and personalised service, combined with strong surveying expertise, delivers high client engagement and satisfaction. We pride ourselves on delivering professional results every time.


John Boulton White commenced the Surveying practice in 1959 in the St George area of Sydney.

His initial involvement in Surveying was marking boundaries, setting out cottages for project home builders and carrying out identification surveys for Solicitors.

As time passed the firm became more involved with medium density residential developers. Initially, the survey requirements to these clients were the basic setout, check survey, etc. However, as developments became more complex, our involvement with the developer grew to a stage where, today, we are an integral part of the development team from pre-purchase through to completion.


The firm currently has a staff of about 20 including Surveyors, field assistants, draftspersons and administrative staff. JBW Surveyors has defined its vision and stated its prime objectives to be sustainable growth, client diversification and business value creation.


Our vision is to be one of Australia’s most progressive, prestigious and client focused surveying companies. 


Our mission is to be an industry leader in the Surveying profession and to define our legacy by delivering outstanding service that gives our clients highly successful project outcomes.
