The More You Know
Property surveys are crucial to understanding the piece of property you wish to purchase or build on. A survey can give a detailed report on the make-up of land while also providing insight into potential legal or environmental concerns. Here’s some of what you can expect from Austin Engineering’s surveys:
- Environmental Assessment – Whether purchasing property never built on or acquiring land from an old development, your property has unique natural elements that can affect construction or its value. For example, your survey can uncover the presence of flood plains, topography, bodies of water, elevation, etc. Understanding these environmental elements can inform land usage and how to appease environmental standards and regulations.
- Legal Assessment – Land surveys in Springfield IL not only assess your property’s physical make-up but also address its legal aspects. Part of surveying is identifying your property’s boundaries and whether or not easements or encroachments affect current land usage. Additionally, a property survey helps determine the current zoning for your land. Doing so can save you the pain of accidentally purchasing land mismatched to the zoning requirements of your project.
- Existing Improvements Assessment – Purchasing a piece of land previously built on likely means some existing man-made improvements already done to your property. Your property survey will uncover such improvements, so site planning and land development can assess whether or not these improvements are helpful to new construction. Existing structures, roadways, utility lines, stormwater management, etc., are some of what your survey will keep track of.
Picking Surveys to Meet Your Needs
While general property surveys can cover most of the information you need for loads, land development, etc., other survey types can supply more specific information on your land. As such, Austin Engineering employs several local survey crews well versed in all types of surveying. For example, some specialized surveys include:
- Tract Surveys
- Lot Surveys
- GPS Surveys
- Topographic Surveys
- ALTA/NSPS Surveys
- Easement & Right of Way Surveys
