The Commercial and Industrial Construction segment of our business consists of commercial retail centers, warehouses, auto dealerships, convenience stores, shopping centers, office buildings, low to mid-rise buildings, public works projects, government buildings and institutional facilities.
We provide construction surveying layout and as built services on any of these types of projects, from the initial staking of the foundations to the layout of the mechanical systems on the rooftops of mid-rise buildings. Our big picture approach to these tasks includes comparing structural drawings to the architectural drawings, and the review of any appropriate shop drawings. Oftentimes, we catch mathematical, drafting or labeling differences between the different sets of plans, and report those differences in case they need to be addressed before construction begins.
The multitude of information and cross checks obtained from a close examination of the plans and made available to the on site construction professionals or design engineers can help a project from experiencing time delays, unexpected costs and serious complications.
Have you ever needed a field crew on site as soon as possible because a lumber delivery truck accidentally backed over several survey stakes set just a day earlier for the site crew? In that moment of panic, you may call for a survey crew, but there’s a good chance that they will not be able to return for a couple of days. As a project manager, an issue such as this one can be extremely frustrating and can also delay site work significantly.
As a construction survey layout company, we get urgent calls like this on a weekly basis. We know the pitfalls of stakes being destroyed or other unexpected obstacles, all of which result in the project schedule being impacted. We cater to the construction industry, and have made it our priority to relieve some of these obstacles and headaches involved in your day to day activities. We can usually schedule a survey crew on very short notice- sometimes even on the same day, or at least the very next day. We’ve got you covered because we know your business!
