Construction Staking, Bakersfield, CA
When you’re on the verge of a new construction project, there can be a lot to be nervous about. With plans drawn up and the land ready to be used, there’s a need to make sure that everything is going to move ahead as designed. At Precision Surveying of Bakersfield, we provide construction staking services to ensure that the physical labor that takes place during construction matches up to the designs that were laid out before. There are a couple of types of construction staking that will help to assist you with the building process, which we’ll go into a bit below. Of course, if you know what you’re looking for already, speak to our customer service team and we’ll arrange a consultation for you.
What is Construction Staking?
Understanding construction staking will go a long way to helping you reliably plan out the timelines and costs involved with building a new property – and our land surveyor teams are more than ready to handle these services on your behalf. Construction staking – sometimes known as a site layout survey – is where a land survey company interprets construction plans and marks the proposed new constructions’ locations on the physical land. This is a really important process for getting a clear understanding of the design, and for making sure that the construction procedures progress according to the designs that were set out initially.
Types of Construction Staking
Construction staking is largely split into two categories, each with their own specific purposes – rough grade staking and site layout staking. Rough grade staking involves placing markers for the site improvements based on the reference to the location and final grade elevation. This is typically used in the construction of slopes, parking lots, and roadways, and it allows the construction team to prepare the site for the next stage of work. Site layout staking happens once the underground features have been completed (sanitation, water lines, electrical lines), and involves staking out the above ground features for construction. Building corners and interior grid lines are marked out, as well as a number of other features, and these can even affect accessibility requirements.
When it comes to construction staking, it’s really important that you place your trust in a team with the experience and track record that demonstrates they’re accomplished enough to handle the work. All of our land surveyor teams are properly licensed, so there should be no doubt that we’ll be able to take care of this work for you with a minimum of fuss.
One of the significant advantages of placing your trust in our team is that the construction process is far more likely to run smoothly with our assistance. Construction staking is different from a typical property survey in the sense that it continues as the construction processes carry on across the land, with each new building sprouting from the ground. By making sure things are going to plan, you’re avoiding having to re-do work, which will mean more money spent on labor and materials – which is surely the last thing that you want.
