Construction surveys are generally those surveys associated with the layout of new facilities or earthworks. In almost all construction surveys, the location of the structure being built must be determined with respect to some property boundary or in the case of plantsites, a specified position within the limits of the plant.
Land Surveyors’ deal with property boundaries and their expertise in measurement technologies makes them the logical choice for ensuring your structure is being built in the right place. At the very least, you should consider using the services of a Land Surveyor to locate the boundaries of your development and set the control for the layout of your facilities before any construction begins.
Construction layouts often involve the staking:
- Building grid lines
- Bolt locations
- Site Bench Marks
The primary purpose of a construction layout is to ensure the structure / facility being built, is constructed in the right place.
