Stakeout Survey


Arek Surveying performs a wide range of surveying options for people across New York state. It includes the boroughs in NYC, such as Brooklyn and Queens, as well as counties in upstate New York and Nassau County on Long Island. One such option to choose from is stakeout surveying. This is a survey that 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." Learn more about this sort out stakeout survey and its importance to property and land owners.

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 know as construction surveying.
