Architectural surveys are surveys carried out for a specific project area, which will be utilized for design purposes by an Architect. This type of plan would normally be used to assist in the design and development of a parcel of land. Examples could be the construction of new structures on a site, modification of existing structures or integration new structures onto an existing developed site. Retaining the services of an Alberta Land Surveyor for this type of survey provides assurance the measurements depicted are correct and relational positioning of various features to the legal property boundaries is also correct. Land Surveyors’ would typically prepare the Architectural Plan by certifying the correctness of their product by affixing their Corporate Permit Stamp and signing the plan.
Obtaining a digital representation of the site you are developing can provide valuable information for the design specialists on your team. Dimensions and location of existing structures, elevations, contours, utility services, easements, right of ways, property boundary dimensions and adjacent property details can all be elements of an Architectural Survey.
