Roger Joiner, Survey Team Leader When designing a construction site, surveying is an extremely important part of the process. It’s the first step that must be done in order for the engineer to know the existing topography, or geographical features of the land, which they’ll utilize when planning the design of a building or roadway.
As civil engineers and surveyors, there are many aspects of our daily jobs that are second nature to us. But we hear common questions about our field often from the public. In this “Did You Know” blog series, we’ll answer some of these questions.
One of the best ways weve heard to describe surveyors is to say that surveyors are the eyes and ears for the property owners. Many property owners, public or private, aren’t always familiar with the land they are trying to develop or improve. By doing a survey, we are able to show and note on a survey any easement, zoning restrictions or improvements that affect the property either in a negative or positive manner. Our ultimate goal is to provide a true depiction of existing improvements and restrictions, situated on and adjacent to the property, aiding in the engineering and design of future improvements.
