Ventura County builders often require construction staking. Construction staking is a unique branch of land survey because it involves the immediate use of the survey, in the field, for construction. To GP Salmen & Associates, that means several things:
It means that GP Salmen & Associates stakes are checked as they are set. Later that day, we will double-check in the office.
It means that an easy to understand 24×36” staking plan (often referred to as a “Cut Sheet” ) be left on the site the day of. Whenever practical, the GP Salmen & Associates staking plan will be the same scale as the project plans.
A word about plans. We place a high degree of importance on checking with the plan “author” (e.g. civil/structural engineer, architect) to be sure that we have the latest revision.
And, for GP Salmen & Associates, the immediate nature of the construction survey triggers a very close coordination by us with the contractors and/or subcontractors with regard to offsets, line stakes, and prioritization of tasks, before we mobilize.
We’d be happy to talk to you about the many building, shopping center, and residential construction projects GP Salmen & Associates has staked in Ventura County. And about yours.
