Stakeout Survey or Construction Layout

A Stakeout survey or construction layout for new construction of a home and/or dwelling, or an addition for a remodel shows builders where to place the proposed foundation in relation to the boundary of the property. The stakeout survey’s main purpose is to consider the building setbacks in relation to the properties boundaries to ensure proper placement based on plot plan/site plan that Polysurveying typically provides for its clientele.

There are two main forms of Stakeout surveys performed depending on which sector it falls within. We perform stakeout surveys for standard residential subdivision lots for our homebuilding sector, as well as, for our clients in the build to rent or commercial sector looking to create comprehensive developments in the form of townhomes, apartments, and other home developments that are turnkey developments for investment groups.

For residential surveys, the surveyor performs a boundary and layout the proposed foundation or addition in the form of rebars, stakes, etc. that are physically marked on the property to show builders where the footprint of the building is located. We then produce a survey drawing or map of the footprint markings of the building location and this is the actual survey for your records. A follow-up to this survey in the form of a foundation or final/closing is highly recommended, to ensure the home or building is in the correct location. Most lenders and permitting jurisdictions would require this to ensure that the home was built in compliance with local regulations.

At Polysurveying we understand the need to get your home coming out of the ground with speed and efficiency to have your project a success from start to finish.
