Stakeout Survey


Stakeout Surveying for Nassau County, Brooklyn, Queens & NYC Area

Arek Surveying performs stakeout surveying for home and business owners across New York state, including the boroughs in NYC, such as Brooklyn and Queens, as well as counties in upstate New York and Nassau County on Long Island. In a nutshell, stakeout surveying is for marking buildings and property lines before the structure is built. Building stakeouts are used for the layout of buildings establishing the location and height for future construction. We are a licensed surveying company with years of experience providing reliable surveys of all types.

What is Stakeout Surveying?

Stakeout surveying is a survey to establish the location of structures, objects and/or property corners based on proposed plans. Surveyors stake out property corners to define the limits of a construction site. The building foundation is usually staked out by means of access lines created with certain offsets around the proposed structure. Structural building elements (i.e. columns) are staked out by establishing axis lines. And in the end, the field sketch documents all staked outlines. These sketches are later transferred into AutoCad drawing.

This process is commonly called "staking property lines." This is a survey that is also crucial for construction projects, since it lays out the property lines for a given project. Allowing for a smoother project all around.

Survey Elements

A few elements go into stakeout surveying, such as surveying the existing conditions of a future work site. These conditions include:

  • underground infrastructure
  • existing buildings
  • topography

Stakeout surveying is vital in verifying the location of structures during construction as well as detailing reference points and markers that will ultimately guide the construction of new structures. All these details during a construction project matter when it comes to stakeout surveying, also known as construction surveying.

What To Consider for Successful Construction Stakeout Surveys

Stakeout surveys are almost exclusively used for construction projects. So, there are a few key things to consider when enlisting surveyors for a stakeout survey to ensure a successful survey.

  1. It is essential to clearly understand the entire project's requirements and specification. This will ultimately ensure that all of the necessary measurements are taken during the survey and that the end results will accurately reflect the desired outcome.
  2. The construction site must be clearly marked. All necessary equipment needs to be on hand before the survey begins. By doing so, there will be less disruption and fewer delays during the surveying process.
  3. Ultimately, it comes down to the professionalism of the survey in order to get accurate results. So by turning to Arek Surveying as your surveyors of choice, you are ensuring that everything will be done correctly.
