As-Built Surveys for Construction

Construction surveys stake out reference points and markers that will guide the construction of new structures such as roads or buildings. These markers are usually staked out according to a suitable coordinate system selected for the project. Once the project is complete, GSI can conduct an As-Built survey of the the finished improvements. You will need a final As-Built Survey to receive your Certificate of Occupancy for the building.

GSI surveyors can also perform As-Built Surveys for an ongoing project to map out underground improvements and other structures that will be covered by the end of the project.

When is an As-Built Survey required?

Other surveys provide details about the tract of land itself. But an As-Built survey provides details about structures being built or recently completed upon the property. You can order an As-built Survey from Geomatic Solutions at various phases of larger building projects to make sure construction is progressing according to plan. But as construction is wrapped up, a final As-Built Survey should be performed to verify completed work. You will want to confirm that the structures satisfy requirements of local government authorities.

Your construction firm may need an As-Built Survey for any or all of the following reasons:

• To demonstrate to zoning authorities that the structures/improvements comply with local codes
• To confirm that the building has been completed according to plans
• To show a lender that the structure has been built according to approved plans
• To obtain a Certificate of Occupancy (CO) from the local jurisdiction, verifying that the structure is declared habitable
