The Essentials of Construction – Breaking Down the Basics

Everything You Should Know About Construction Surveys

Construction survey is a process in checking out the markers and points that are used in constructing buildings, houses and roads. The markers are checked and observe so that the construction will have a much coordinated system.

Construction survey was also used in the past. The Great Pyramid of Giza has nearly perfect squares because of construction survey. There are really plenty of structures that have used construction survey.

Today, they have been using new and quality equipment to survey constructions. The good thing about surveying is that it is more efficient and accurate. Here is a good example; before surveyors will need two posts that has a chain to measure the distance but not the elevation, however today, they make use of the GPS which can really measure the distance from a certain point to another point and even know the differences of the elevation. Today, these new technology has radio frequencies and even a radar.

They will coordinate with the systems that will be used in the construction.

They use different techniques and equipment in surveying construction. Theodolites and levels are equipment that they use to survey constructions. These equipment can accurately measure the vertical, slope, horizontal and deviation distance. They also make use of GPS surveying, electronic distance measurement and laser scanning.
