Why Is A Construction Surveyor Needed For Your Project?
Even the best-planned construction projects will remain just that; a project–if the construction drawings are not accurately interpreted by a contractor. This is why you need a construction surveyor.
Construction Surveys, also known as Construction Staking, is the interpretation of construction plans, the verification of the project control, and the establishment of locations and elevations of the proposed features such as roads, buildings, and various utilities.
It is done to ensure that a project is built according to engineering design plans. It also helps to make sure that the project is completed on schedule and within the budget without costly layout mistakes.

The Different Phases of Construction Surveys
Construction surveys can cover a wide range of tasks. Below we discuss how construction surveys are done in the entire course of the construction, even before and after.
During this phase, construction surveys usually begin by establishing a network of highly accurate control points that will be used and referenced throughout the job. The goal is to be able to visually identify all existing signs of exterior and roof damage and any signs of structural settlement before construction begins. This phase is also usually when initial marks are placed on the ground, indicating the location of the structures to be built.
Construction surveys are used to layout and stake the locations of other features and utilities, periodically as needed. Construction surveys can also be used during this time to check the accuracy of the actual construction by comparing actual field measurements to plan data.
After Construction Phase
After the construction has finished, construction surveys can be used to check the final results, comparing what has actually been built with the way it was planned. This type of construction survey is sometimes referred to as an “As-built” survey.
