Commercial Surveying

Surveying Consultants Admin - Saturday, February 01, 2014

Commercial construction projects are massive endeavors that use great amounts of time, energy, and resources. When done correctly, the outcome is breathtaking. Unfortunately, however, many new construction projects struggle against unexpected property difficulties, which can greatly lengthen a project's timeline. The amount of material and manpower necessary can be reduced with expert planning before the project actually begins. Hiring a professional surveying firm in the preliminary stages will inform you of everything you need to know up front, and keep you informed as the project progresses.

When beginning a construction project, commercial builders will have a lot of areas of focus occupying their attention. It can therefore be easy to overlook certain things. Utilizing the aid of a professional surveying firm will help everyone to remain aware of things like: property boundaries, local zoning regulations & necessary permits, as well as an all-around understanding of site limitations.

Why hire a professional surveying firm before beginning a commercial construction project?

-Property Boundaries

Before laying the first brick, it's good to know what the exact dimensions are that you may work with. Failure to adhere to specific territory lines could create legal troubles later on down the road, after construction has already been initiated. A property survey consists of thorough data collection & research that ultimately seeks to understand the property's history. From this, exact markers are placed, giving you a tangible framework to build within. You may then rest easy as the new construction project flourishes, knowing you won't be over-stepping your boundaries.

-Attaining Permits

Depending on the location, design, and scope of the project, you may find yourself needing more permits than anticipated. By allowing us to step in from the get-go, we'll be able to tell you exactly what you'll need right away, thereby allowing you to avoid any rude surprises along the way. When beginning a commercial construction project, one needs to be aware of the local, state, and federal regulations in place. Surveying Consultants provides you with the research and information you need.

-Property Survey Map

Finally, you'll be provided with a Property Survey Map. This type of document makes use of existing maps, and includes the data collected during the property's research. This essentially gives the construction team a visual and informational blueprint to reference throughout the project.

In order for one to make the most of their time and resources, it's wise to be in communication with a surveying firm.
