What is Construction Surveying?

Construction surveying is a field that encompasses the precise measurement, mapping, and analysis of land to enable the proper planning and execution of building projects.

Experienced surveyors use modern technologies and approaches to carry out elaborate terrain assessments, identify property borders, and draw layout plans. The resulting data helps in accurate project planning by guaranteeing structures adhere to approved plans while complying with any necessary regulatory standards.

Benefits of Construction Surveying

Accuracy and precision

Construction surveying provides accurate measurements that ensure structures are located precisely and laid out as planned, eliminating errors and discrepancies that would compromise project integrity and quality.

Cost savings

Construction surveying provides accurate site condition data that helps optimize material usage and decrease rework rates, leading to cost savings by eliminating wasteful practices and allocating resources efficiently.

Risk mitigation

Construction surveyors identify site challenges, such as uneven terrain or utility conflicts, before construction begins to help reduce risks, avoid delays, and enhance project safety.

Regulatory compliance

Construction surveying ensures compliance with local codes and standards to prevent legal issues while meeting all necessary construction project specifications.

Efficient construction processes

Construction surveying ensures precise site layouts and measurements, enhancing construction team efficiency, resulting in faster workflows, shorter project timelines, and on-budget project completion.


Our Services

Residential surveys

Residential surveying involves meticulously measuring and mapping properties designated for residential use. This encompasses delineating property boundaries for fence or wall construction, conducting slope analyses, obtaining roof height certifications, and more.

Land surveys

Land surveying encompasses any aspect of measuring or mapping related to land. It uses special instruments for this task in order to establish property lines, determine elevations, and create detailed maps for construction projects or legal documentation purposes.

Site layout surveys

Site layout surveys involve setting reference points and marking the precise locations of structures, utilities, and other features on a construction site. These surveys guide construction activities by guaranteeing that built structures match design plans.

As-built surveys

As-built surveys are usually conducted at the end of construction projects to determine the precise location, dimensions, and configuration in built structures. The acquired information may be used for record-keeping or verification of conformity to design specifications.

Boundary surveys

Boundary surveys help establish and demarcate legal property boundaries on parcels of land, helping settle property disputes while also keeping accurate land ownership records, which is important when investing in or developing real estate properties.

Topographic surveys

Topographic surveys capture both the natural and manmade aspects of an area within three dimensions, involving contours, elevation levels, vegetative cover, and other features that are relevant in their mapping.

Utility surveys

Utility surveys include the location of underground facilities such as water, gas, electric, and telecom lines to protect them during excavation activities while also ensuring that these assets remain safe for workers as well as members of communities.

ALTA/ACSM surveys

ALTA/ACSM surveys (American Land Title Association/American Congress on Surveying and Mapping surveys) provide thorough inspections according to standards set forth by these organizations, giving detailed reports regarding boundaries, easements, improvements, and any other relevant details regarding any piece of real estate in question.
