Construction Layout

Construction Staking, also known as a Site Layout Survey, is the process of interpreting construction plans and marking the location of proposed new structures such as roads or buildings. Construction staking is performed to ensure a project is built according to engineering design plans. The staked reference points guide the construction of proposed improvements on the property, and will help to ensure the construction project is completed on schedule, on budget and as intended.
A Topographic Map ('topo') is a site map showing the topographic (Earth Elevations) features of a site by way of contour lines. Topographic features could include drainage patterns, locations of rock outcroppings, hills and other natural features. The map may also include artificial features such as buildings, utility locations, detention ponds and other features which would affect engineering design on the site.

ALTA Surveys
  

Boundary Survey

An ALTA Survey is a survey prepared by a licensed surveyor in accordance with detailed standards adopted by the American Land Title Association (ALTA) and the American Congress of Surveying and Mapping (ACSM).  
A survey to establish or re-establish the boundaries or limits of a property or easement identified by a deed of record is commonly referred to as a Boundary Survey.  Simply put, I will set markers at all of the property corners and provide a drawing showing all of the dimensions.
