So let’s start at the top and work our way down. As-built plans it is!
Whether you call it a Site Survey, Physical Survey, As-Build Survey, Record Drawings, Measured Drawings, Existing Conditions Drawings or an As-Built survey, they all boil down to the same thing and is quite simple to explain. It is all in the name.
A professional land surveyor uses survey instruments to record data on a site to show a property, structure or building exactly as it is built at a specific point in time. The As-built survey is therefore used to demonstrate the current condition on a construction project, for example, at varying stages for monetary purposes.
After completion of the As-built survey the land survey company then compile drawings containing all relevant recorded data which is then handed over to the client. This is known as the deliverables. The deliverables contain valuable information and are useful to many individuals involved in the project. The As-built plans can be used to determine if the construction process is up to date and can be used to ensure that deadlines are met. It also serves as a close-out document to verify that the work authorized was completed according to plans and in compliance with all relevant standards and regulations.
Be sure that you make use of a reputable and qualified land survey company, such as G2 Surveys Mapping, to ensure accurate drawings. Cutting corners can result in survey errors which could cause costly and messy situations down the line.
