Construction Staking & Site Layout Surveys
We perform construction staking and site layout to interpret construction plans and mark out reference points prior to starting your project -- locate building corners, building envelopes, driveways, drainage structures, and other improvements.
Why Do You Need a Site Layout Survey?
Predominantly utilized for commercial construction, construction staking, widely also referred to as site layout surveys, is the process of visually interpreting construction blueprints using stakes as reference points. The stakes placed by surveyors will not only mark the dimensions and location of the structure to be built, but potentially roads, electrical lines, water lines, etc. With the visual markers in place, your contractors are able to maintain accuracy and compliance with the plan.
Why is Construction Staking Important?
Construction staking is integral to new construction plans in order to prevent costly mistakes. While you may have a general contractor for your construction project, there are often times you will need a third party contractor to come in for drainage or electrical. Without construction staking, it’s easy for their to be misplacement of a pipe or a wall by mere measurements. In turn, causing high repercussions that will undoubtedly impact the progress of the project. For this reason, it is critical that everyone involved can readily view the site’s layout without the necessity of the physical plans. Construction staking reduces the risk of error, time delays, and expensive corrections.
