Our chief survey drafter and company founder Jim Stanfield started work in 1981 as a cadet drafter at the surveying company Keilar & McGhie Pty Ltd (currently Landpartners). Whilst studying at nights to complete his Certificate in Cartography at the Queensland Institute of Technology he also gained valuable knowledge through this full time position.
After rising through the ranks to chief draftsperson, a position he held for more than five years, he finally parted ways in 1990.
Jim took up a position of office manager with Ernie Harvey & Associates, a survey drafting company based in Brisbane, just in time for the recession of the early 1990’s. With a change of ownership and the effects of the recession Ernie Harvey & Associates closed their doors in early 1991.
These unfortunate circumstances however left a hole in the contract survey drafting area, so in the height of the recession Jim, with the support of his wife Anita, decided to establish Stanfield’s Design & Drafting, soon to be rebranded Stanfield’s Real Property Drafting.
Our firm base of knowledge, expertise and integrity complimented by our prompt and reliable service has positioned Stanfield’s as one of the largest survey drafting firms around to date. Servicing Surveyors, Engineers, Developers, Local Councils, Main Roads, Ergon, Energex & QRail our highly trained staff are always eager to tackle the next challenge presented to them no matter how small or large the task.
Since inception Stanfield’s has always been based in the Spring Hill area, starting out sub-leasing single offices within other organisations, to now owning our own office in Leichhardt Street. Each move has given us more room to increase our staff base and a better environment to expand our business. We have found this location offers convenience to local and visiting clients, as well as situates us close to all required amenities. Next time your in town feel free to pop up and have a look around our office, we would love to see you.
