One of the most important services that civil engineers offer is land surveying in Idaho. Land surveying is a process that establishes the legal and physical boundaries and characteristics of a piece of land, and this is important for a variety of applications. Whether you’re a property owner who wants to avoid a boundary dispute with a neighbor, or you’re a developer planning an extensive subdivision project on a plot of land, a land surveyor will serve an essential role in the process:
- Boundary surveys: Boundary surveys are conducted to establish the boundaries of a property. During a boundary survey, the surveyor will assess the boundaries of a piece of land through onsite measurements and research of property deed history. These surveys establish a reliable set of boundaries that property owners can use to create accurate real estate listings or avoid potential boundary disputes with neighbors.
- Construction staking: If you’re planning a construction project, you will need help staking out various parts of the property to give your construction crew essential points of reference during the building process. A land surveyor can provide you with expert staking services to ensure that you have the most successful construction project possible and to minimize the amount of time that your crew spends on marking prior to breaking ground on the project.
- Topographic surveys: In addition to assessing the boundaries of a piece of land, surveyors can also establish the physical characteristics and topography of a site. These services are important during construction and development planning, since topography can affect what kind of site preparation is necessary before a structure can be built. During a topographic survey, your surveyor will document the location, size and configuration of a variety of different natural and manmade features including trees, structures, roads, waterways and hills.
- Specialized services: Every land surveying project is unique, and it’s imperative for a land surveyor to take a customized approach to every job. Professional land surveying crews with extensive training and expertise can offer specialized services using sophisticated tools and modern technology to improve the accuracy and speed of their surveying project. Land surveyors use drones, electronic measuring tools and specialized surveying programs to provide land owners with exceptionally detailed survey results. However, not every surveying firm will be able to offer this level of excellence. To get the best results possible from your survey, choose a firm that has an experienced team with access to advanced technology and the capacity to provide specialized services.
