Industrial Property Surveys

Daniel Arthur Surveying has been providing surveys of all types for over 10 years. Whether you are needing a Residential Survey, Commercial Property Survey, or Industrial Survey, we have the expertise and state of the art equipment to deliver. Below are some of the types of Industrial surveys that we perform. Please give us a call if you have questions or need a survey completed for your project.

Engineering Design Survey

New construction projects usually begin with an Engineering Design Survey, requested by the civil engineer in charge of the project design. These surveys include ground level topography, and the location and documentation of visible evidence of existing improvements.

Commercial Development Surveys

property investigation, sketch plans, preliminary meetings, boundary and topographic surveys, preliminary cost estimates, relationship building are all aspects to a successful new construction project or rehab of an existing facility. Our team can assist with everything you need involved with civil engineering services. Whether one time or forming a continuous relationship for multiple projects, let’s work out the details together and move forward to help you reach your goals.

Land Title Surveys

These surveys can be performed on both commercial and residential property, and they show buildings and other improvements, as well as easements, rights-of-way, and other claims to the land. This type of land survey goes above and beyond marking the boundaries on the land itself; it also includes records research to ensure that the title is clear. This can help catch problems even before the land changes hands and title insurance is needed.

Boundary Surveys

The most basic and most common type of survey, a boundary survey is used for measuring, marking and verifying the boundary lines of a given piece of property. More than just measuring physical boundaries, this process involves intensive research of prior records (including title certificates, deeds and earlier surveys), as well as the use of physical and GPS technologies, to ensure that the stated boundary lines match the true boundaries of the property.

Topographic Surveys

Nearly all construction projects begin with a topographic land survey, which describes the starting point of the land before improvements are made. A topographic survey is primarily concerned with noting the natural and manmade features on the land itself. These may include hills, ravines, streams, trees, fences, buildings, and other improvements over the natural state of the land. A topographic survey shows the location, size, and height of these types of improvements, as well as gradual changes or contours in elevation. A topographic land survey focuses more on elevation than on horizontal measurements. Topographic land surveys are also useful when a parcel of land that was previously in use is being redeveloped—for example, an abandoned landfill or a site where a building was demolished.

Route Surveys

Route surveying is comprised of all survey operations required for design and construction of engineering projects such as highways, pipelines, or railroads.

Lot Staking

Staking property lines involves the placement of survey markers, typically iron or wooden stakes, at property corners with additional markers along the property lines. This process creates a visible line that defines the limits of your property. This service is also useful when planning to install fences and other structures. Furthermore, lot staking can prevent any unwanted intrusions or encroachments from neighbouring lots.

Lot Improvement Survey

Same as the Survey Plat, but also including all improvements (fences, structures, driveways, wells, etc…) to the lot or parcel.

Site Mitigation Surveying

Site Mitigation Surveys give you objective information on commercial or residential properties and their potential exposure to risk and/or loss. Site Mitigation Surveys can provide information about:

    hazards that threaten buildings, premises, and people
  • bodily injury exposures
  • recommended improvements that can reduce risk
  • internal protection systems, such as automatic sprinkler systems and fire alarms
  • conformance of individual business sites to corporate loss control and safety programs

Mapping

Whether you’re using our maps for building, purchasing real estate, or for planning future land use, knowing and understanding the features of your property is crucial. We realize how important our maps are to you and how vital their accuracy and data integration is.

As-Built Surveys

Unlike land or boundary surveys which measure the boundaries or features of the land itself, an as-built survey is designed to show any and all improvements to the land at a given point in time. Any residential construction or improvement project begins with a site plan which shows the location and dimensions of proposed improvements. As-built surveys, by comparison, measure these improvements as they’re being built to ensure they are conforming to the proposed site plan. Depending on the size and scope of the project, as-built surveys may occur numerous times during construction, and again at completion

ALTA-ACSM Land Title Surveys

Specifically designed for commercial property transactions, this survey goes far beyond the basic boundary surveys. Also sometimes referred to as an “ALTA/ACSM survey,” an ALTA land title survey is one of the most detailed land surveys available, performed and prepared in accordance with the specifications laid out by the American Land Title Association (ALTA) and the American Congress of Surveying and Mapping (ACSM). Here are just a few of the features that may appear on an ALTA survey:

  • Location and elevation of all structural improvements on the property (such as buildings, fences, walkways, and roads)
  • Location of water features and/or water boundaries
  • Zoning setbacks for the property
  • Public road access
  • Information on property easements and their ramifications
  • Information on neighboring property owners
  • Information on possible encroachments
  • Evidence of cemeteries that might have once existed on the land

Bathymetric Surveys s

Bathymetric surveys allow us to measure the depth of a body of water as well as map the underwater features. We use bathymetric surveys for many different types of research including flood inundation, contour of streams and reservoirs, leakage, water-quality studies, dam removal, biological and spill, and storage and fill in reservoirs and ponds.
