Why Civil Surveys are Crucial to Your Success

According to American Congress on Surveying and Mapping:

“Surveying is the science and art of making all essential measurements to determine the relative position of points or physical and cultural details above, on, or beneath the surface of the Earth, and to depict them in a usable form, or to establish the position of points or details.”

Before setting any project in the world of civil engineering into motion, it is crucial to utilize this incredibly useful art and science. Hiring a civil surveyor to measure and map out your land will minimize risks on all fronts, making it easy to foster effective engineering execution and determine your project’s feasibility and most promising and environmentally friendly design. In addition to assisting you in planning the placement of your structures, civil surveys prevent detrimental disconnects in the process and lend a legal hand in settling disputes. 

Properly Plan and Prepare for Your Project

Through determining the distance, angles, and relative positioning between objects, surveyors measure and map out land for fruitful implementation of infrastructure. Survey methods are improving alongside modern science and technology, uplifting the potential of projects to be planned and prepared for in the best possible way.

Surveys are advantageous in an array of civil engineering areas, offering the opportunity for optimal alignment and to ascertain the amount of earthwork necessary in projects before entering their execution phase.

  • Measure and Map Out Your Environment to Make Life Easier

Civil surveys make it easy to construct competent infrastructure that stays within the lines of environmental codes. 

  • Determine Your Economic Feasibility Before Execution 

Conducting a survey before commencing civil construction allows you the ability to ascertain its true economic feasibility and fix any errors that will affect your cost.

  • Establish Lines, Points, & Boundaries for Engineering

Civil surveys allow engineers to complete their job efficiently by establishing concrete boundaries, points, and every line between.

Avoid Disconnects Between Design and Construction

Accurate dimensions provided by civil maps can make all aspects of a project more cohesive and prevent problems in many areas. Disconnects that often arise between different disciplines involved in the planning and construction processes can be avoided by determining specific dimensions for everyone to follow.

After the final product is complete, a concrete map makes it easy to enjoy the fruits of your labor and avoid facing issues in the departments of safety and legality.

  • Survey High-Risk Areas to Support Safety

During a civil survey, land is investigated in-depth, allowing for the safe and secure implementation of infrastructure. 

  • Lend a Legal Hand in Private & Public Property Disputes

The accurate data supplied by surveys can settle disputes by determining the line between private and public property.

  • Learn Mine Magnitude & Minimize the Risk of Low Mineral Wealth

Making use of a civil survey before mining allows miners to excavate efficiently and minimize the risk that they will come out empty-handed.

Civil surveys are crucial to successful infrastructure, allowing it to be planned and executed properly and designed in such a way that safety is definite and disputes can be settled with ease. Before you commence any planning or construction for an upcoming engineering project in Utah, ask Anderson Engineering for a civil survey and see what other services we can provide to smooth out the process.
