Construction Surveying Process

Construction surveying establishes and marks the position and details the layout of new structures, such as roads or buildings for subsequent construction. Here are a few common steps for completing a construction survey:​

  • The first step of this type of survey is to perform a property survey. This needs to be done before any actual construction takes place or any architectural plans are being prepared. This will help avoid any unwanted disputes.
  • In addition to property survey, property corners stakeout is a very common request which helps avoid errors later on.
  • The next step is the location of anchor bolts, axis lines layout, and marking of benchmarks. Those reference marks are essential to any contractor providing construction services.
  • At later stages of construction, the contractor may ask us to transfer axis lines and benchmarks to subsequent floors. This is done accurately and does not interrupt any ongoing work on the construction site.
