Construction Staking

Construction Staking Overview

Construction Staking, also known as Construction Layout or Site Layout Survey, is the process of analyzing and interpreting architectural and civil engineering plans and calculating appropriate offset points, survey points and elevations. The process also requires placing stakes to mark the location and elevation of proposed grades, detention ponds, utility structures, curb and gutter, buildings or any other improvements as shown on the approved engineering design drawing or architectural plans. These stakes are set for each stage of construction, from rough grading to project completion. A professional construction staking helps ensure that the job is executed as intended and all details of the job are accounted for on site.
