Daniel Arthur Surveying has been providing surveys of all types for over 10 years. Whether you are needing a Residential Survey, Commercial Property Survey, or Industrial Survey, we have the expertise and state of the art equipment to deliver. Below are some of the types of surveys that we perform for commercial projects. Please give us a call if you have questions or need a survey completed for your project.
New construction projects usually begin with an Engineering Design Survey, requested by the civil engineer in charge of the project design. These surveys include ground level topography, and the location and documentation of visible evidence of existing improvements.
property investigation, sketch plans, preliminary meetings, boundary and topographic surveys, preliminary cost estimates, relationship building are all aspects to a successful new construction project or rehab of an existing facility. Our team can assist with everything you need involved with civil engineering services. Whether one time or forming a continuous relationship for multiple projects, let’s work out the details together and move forward to help you reach your goals.
These surveys can be performed on both commercial and residential property, and they show buildings and other improvements, as well as easements, rights-of-way, and other claims to the land. This type of land survey goes above and beyond marking the boundaries on the land itself; it also includes records research to ensure that the title is clear. This can help catch problems even before the land changes hands and title insurance is needed.
The most basic and most common type of survey, a boundary survey is used for measuring, marking and verifying the boundary lines of a given piece of property. More than just measuring physical boundaries, this process involves intensive research of prior records (including title certificates, deeds and earlier surveys), as well as the use of physical and GPS technologies, to ensure that the stated boundary lines match the true boundaries of the property.
Nearly all construction projects begin with a topographic land survey, which describes the starting point of the land before improvements are made. A topographic survey is primarily concerned with noting the natural and manmade features on the land itself. These may include hills, ravines, streams, trees, fences, buildings, and other improvements over the natural state of the land. A topographic survey shows the location, size, and height of these types of improvements, as well as gradual changes or contours in elevation. A topographic land survey focuses more on elevation than on horizontal measurements. Topographic land surveys are also useful when a parcel of land that was previously in use is being redeveloped—for example, an abandoned landfill or a site where a building was demolished.
Same as the Survey Plat, but also including all improvements (fences, structures, driveways, wells, etc…) to the lot or parcel.
Staking property lines involves the placement of survey markers, typically iron or wooden stakes, at property corners with additional markers along the property lines. This process creates a visible line that defines the limits of your property. This service is also useful when planning to install fences and other structures. Furthermore, lot staking can prevent any unwanted intrusions or encroachments from neighbouring lots.
Site Mitigation Surveys give you objective information on commercial or residential properties and their potential exposure to risk and/or loss. Site Mitigation Surveys can provide information about:
Whether you’re using our maps for building, purchasing real estate, or for planning future land use, knowing and understanding the features of your property is crucial. We realize how important our maps are to you and how vital their accuracy and data integration is.
Specifically designed for commercial property transactions, this survey goes far beyond the basic boundary surveys. Also sometimes referred to as an “ALTA/ACSM survey,” an ALTA land title survey is one of the most detailed land surveys available, performed and prepared in accordance with the specifications laid out by the American Land Title Association (ALTA) and the American Congress of Surveying and Mapping (ACSM). Here are just a few of the features that may appear on an ALTA survey:
