Services: Construction Layout & Staking
Construction layout and staking refers to the field marking of construction improvements proposed on a site. Construction staking may be in the form of rough preliminary stakes (for displaying the general location of construction improvements) or precise staking for actual construction purposes. Rough preliminary staking may be necessary during the local land use approval process to show the proposed location of construction improvements to local land use officials and the public. It may also be needed by contractors during the early stages of construction to give the site contractors an idea of how the site will be constructed. Precise staking is performed during the actual construction of improvements on site.
Construction stakes are typically used to mark out site construction improvements which include building corners, edges of pavement, drainage structures, sanitary sewer structures, septic systems, wells, utility lines, sidewalks, driveways, and various other construction entities. If requested, construction stakes can also be set to display the elevation of a construction improvement with the amount of cut or fill required to achieve the desired elevation. It is always very important that the surveyor performing construction layout and staking services always works from construction plans that have been approved by the client as well as all pertinent regulatory agencies.
