Winter is finally coming to an end, and now is the right time to start or continue your remodels or construction projects. With all construction projects comes land surveying. Land surveys play an integral part in all new construction designs. Below, we will discuss different types of surveys and why Spring is a great time to complete a land survey.

ALTA Surveys

ALTA surveys are used primarily on commercial property purchases, improvements, or refinancing. These types of surveys are used to ensure a company or lender has the knowledge they need for construction or purchasing. It is completed to provide confidence in the commercial property a lender is financing.

Boundary Surveys

Boundary surveys are used to create boundary lines for properties. This is used for both commercial and residential properties. They are generally used when a person wants to install a fence or add trees to a property. These types of surveys are used for construction and permit purposes.

Topography and UAV Surveys

Topography and UAV surveys are used to create a 3-D model of a piece of land. By establishing land elevations and giving detailed information, a model can be created to help designers with their construction models. These surveys are the most detailed and will show everything about a specific area of land.

As you can see, a lot of different surveys are used for different situations. At Element Land Surveying, we provide excellent land surveys all year long. Spring is one of the top times for land surveys to be completed because of the weather. The snow has disappeared, and the meteorological conditions are a lot warmer and sunny. This is the perfect weather for UAV and topography land surveys. If you need a land survey, consider having one completed during the Spring. It will be the precursor to your construction plans!
