With any construction project, it is critical to create and follow a careful plan for success. Failure to do so could result in the project not coming out the way you want, costing more money, or even breaking down and creating hazardous conditions. One of the first steps that needs to be taken for many construction projects is conducting a Land Survey and forming a Site Design. These two steps form a vital piece of the puzzle that allows the rest of the project to be completed successfully.

Let’s say you try to build a parking lot in the field next to your office building without first conducting a survey and forming a design plan…

Step one

It looks flat enough, so you decide to skip planning and go straight to laying down asphalt. It looks fine once it’s completed, but then you start to notice some problems as time goes on: because of a slight slope, rain begins to pool in a giant puddle right at the entrance to your new parking lot.

Step two

You also chopped up some tree roots while digging out the land and now you have a dead tree overlooking the parking lot, with dead branches just waiting to fall on an unsuspecting car.

Step three

Finally, you didn’t measure your land accurately enough and accidentally paved onto your neighbor’s land – now you need to pay more money to have the asphalt removed to return your neighbor’s property back to normal.

A proper site design would have shown the slight slope of the land, alerted you to hidden tree roots, and mapped out exactly how far your property line extends. Trying to construct anything without forming a detailed plan beforehand is only asking for trouble – Compton Builders is here to help eliminate easily avoidable stress and financial loss.

Do I need it?

Not every construction job calls for a complete survey of the land. If you’re just looking to have a sidewalk patched up, you probably don’t need to have the entire area surveyed. But you definitely want someone to survey the land and come up with a plan any time you are working on a large-scale project – such as installing a new sidewalk, putting down an entire parking lot, constructing a new building, or even purchasing a new home.

Give us a call for any of your Land Surveying and Site Design Needs.

When you go with Compton Builders, you are hiring a team of experts with decades of experience performing land surveys and drafting Site Designs. We ensure all our measurements are correct, our predictions for environmental hazards are considered, and appropriate materials are chosen for the job.

It’s very important to get your land surveyed before any large project, and to make sure the survey is done right! There’s no point in getting an area surveyed if the company you hire is going to overlook important details and cut corners – we don’t proceed with any construction until every single detail is in order.

Our goal is to do the job right the first time, and completing a quality land survey is the first and most critical step in that process.

If you have any questions about the process or how we can stay within your project deadlines while still including this critical step for your project, feel free to call us today at (206) 338-1625 or use our online form. You (and your wallet) will be glad you did!
