What Do Site Layout Surveys Entail?

Also called construction staking, site layout surveys are straightforward. It’s the job of Austin Engineering’s survey crew to analyze and translate architectural blueprints and design plans into a property’s physical staking and site layout. We go to great lengths to ensure our staking is as accurate as possible, following the dimensions outlined in your construction’s architectural plans. For example, based on blueprints provided to our team, we will identify where inner and outer walls will go, where stormwater management features will be implemented, where features like roadways and lots will be placed, etc. Other property features highlighted and outlined during site layout surveys include:

  • Property Lines
  • Marked Corners
  • Building Structures
  • Wells
  • Electrical Features
  • Sewer Lines
  • And More

Do You Need a Construction Layout?

Construction site layout surveys in Peoria IL are essential for most commercial and residential construction. Especially for construction projects that require precise work or contend with difficult terrain, a site survey and staking help give a clear understanding of property development. More crucially, a layout survey can:

  • Ensure Accuracy – By transferring design plans from paper to the physical site, surveys help ensure all construction adheres to the specified dimensions. This avoids costly mistakes or deviations from the plan.
  • Identify Potential Issues Early – Identifying the locations of existing infrastructure like wells, sewer lines, and electrical features can help plan the construction to avoid these areas, reducing the risk of project delays or damage.
  • Enhance Efficiency – With a clear roadmap provided by the site layout, construction teams can work more efficiently. Contractors can coordinate their efforts and resources effectively around the defined spaces.
  • Assist in Legal Compliance – Surveys help ensure that all construction is within the property lines and complies with local zoning laws and regulations, reducing the risk of legal complications.
  • Facilitate Communication – A detailed and accurate site layout facilitates better communication among the construction team, designers, and stakeholders by providing a common reference point.
