Surveying is the only discipline that is present in every phase of the planning, design, and construction cycle. In fact proper planning of the cycle dictates that surveying services comprise the beginning and end of every project. JSD prides itself on its award-winning maps.
JSD provides complete surveying services that begin with boundary and topographic surveying in sufficient detail for engineering and architectural design. Besides providing an accurate base for proper design, the maps also identify property acquisition concerns at the early phases of due diligence. These additional efforts alert the developer to issues that could limit development or cause significant expenses to the project.
Utilizing the latest in technology, the survey crews of JSD provide complete construction staking for building, site and infrastructure construction. Prior to construction however, whether engineering plans are prepared by JSD or by another consultant, diligent review of the plans is made by our experienced staff to evaluate constructability and identify possible conflicts. This review helps avoid delays, claims and significant cost overruns. At project closeout, JSD provides final condition surveys and subsequent record drawings to locate the building and site improvements, which assist the owner and contractor in the computation of final quantities and pay requests.
