Construction surveying techniques are also used for verifying the location and quantities of completed work (as-built). Traditionally a "station/offset" method was used for establishing construction control. The introduction of computers, total stations and GPS in surveying have revolutionized the way construction surveys are done now.

Route Survey. A route survey supplies the data necessary to determine alignment, grading, and earthwork quantities for the design and construction of various engineering projects such as roads, railroads, pipelines, and utilities. When accuracy matters.

The preliminary survey is a detailed study of posed route, establishes levels, records topo- a route tentatively selected on the basis of graphy, and plots results. It also determines.

A construction surveyor is often involved in the placement process for the highway. This requires a survey of the existing terrain to find the best route.

Highway construction surveys are particularly concerned with areas where dirt must be moved, noting to what level and grade. A route survey is a data collection operation to gather information about the proposed route of a roadway, utility pipe, or railway.

Surveyors are tasked with finding the most cost effective route to follow. An engineer will use the data the survey teams collect to plan out the route in detail and create specifications for work crews to follow.

The survey also includes elevations on National Geodetic Survey (NGS) or United States Geodetic Survey (USGS) datum necessary to locate grades, culverts, bridges, and to compute excavation quantities. To ensure proper accounting for each of the various surveying tasks involved with route surveys, the correct coding must always be used.

CHAPTER 10 ENGINEERING AND LAND SURVEYS This chapter discusses important factors of engi-neering surveying and is presented from the viewpoint of the party chief. Included in the discussion are de-sign-data surveys, such as route surveys; and con-struction surveys that include stakeout and as-built discussed in this chapter is land surveying which is a special type of surveying.

Route Surveys Yes, every project begins with a survey. But to ensure a project’s actually successful, getting an accurate, quality survey is paramount. Certified Engineering has the experience, technology and personnel to deliver exceptional surveys and professional service.

Route Surveys for Overhead Electrical Distribution and Transmission Lines The reconnaissance survey for electrical power lines employs many of the same principles and practices that you studied for highway work; however, the design considerations are different.

Highway Route Surveys and Location. Introduction. To determine the geometric features of road design, the following surveys must be conducted after the necessity of the road is decided.

Construction Staking and Site Layout Surveys Before breaking ground on a project, staking out the location of proposed structures or improvements on a property is essential.

Partner's land surveyors can perform construction staking and site layout to interpret construction plans and mark out reference points prior to starting your project.

The surveying services typically consist of base planimetric surveys for design engineering, topographies, boundary surveys, GPS, control monumentation, route surveys, parcel plats and legal descriptions for right-of-way or easement acquisition.

The surveying teams are experienced in preparing route surveys for transportation and utility. a post construction survey showing all major changes in relation to the completed project. It updates any revisions made. Boundary Survey a survey of a parcel of land as described by a metes and bounds legal description or a lot, block and plat book legal description.

It also shows any existing structures as they relate to the property boundaries. Abstract. Highways, railways, canals, tunnels, dams, pipelines, and transmission lines are constructed works having linear shapes classified as routes.

A unique system for expressing route geometry has developed that, once learned, can be applied without fail to this broad range of projects by all surveyors, designers, and constructors.

Highway surveys involve measuring and computing horizontal and vertical angles, elevations, and horizontal distances. The results of these surveys are used to prepare detailed plan and profile base maps of proposed roadways.

In addition, the elevations determined in the survey serve as the basis for.Main Office: Mount Aetna Rd Hagerstown, MD P: Email Us» Branch Office: 82 Worman's Mill Court, Suite G Frederick, MD P: Email Us» Branch Office.there is also a legal component to route surveys that must also be taken into account.

The lack of research into a route survey may result in subsequent problems in the design and construction phases of the roadway.

Photogrammetric Survey Photogrammetry is often used to collect data for the design of roadways. Photogrammetric surveys.
