Why construction surveys are blueprints to success

by | December 1, 2023

The devil is in the details, and without the correct details you may find yourself facing some costly consequences. It may not seem like an important first step, but without a construction survey you may find your project over-due and over budget. By hiring a professional land surveyor to conduct a construction survey before you start digging ensures accuracy, safety, efficiency and success.

What is a Construction Survey?

Simply put, a construction survey ensures what’s getting built is built in the right place. As licensed surveyors we interpret the plans provided, then identify the boundary of the property to make sure any new buildings, roads or structures planned fall within the necessary setbacks required by the municipality’s planning department. Above and beyond that, throughout the duration of your construction project, we can also:

  • verify the correct location of formwork before concrete pours
  • check steel alignment and anchor bolts for column installation
  • check for plumbness between floors in high-rise construction
  • confirm slab flatness using 3-D laser scanning

Finally, we can close out your project by providing an as-built Surveyor’s Real Property Report, confirming everything was completed as planned.
