What is Surveying in the Construction industry?

Surveying is a crucial process in the construction industry that entails measuring and mapping land, buildings, and natural features. A site's boundaries, topography, and any existing infrastructure or natural features are among the physical characteristics of a site that need to be accurately surveyed.

From the initial phases of planning and design to the actual construction and completion of a project, surveying is used throughout the construction process. It is utilized to make sure that the building is constructed in accordance with the design plans, to confirm that the finished structure complies with all necessary safety and regulatory requirements, and to accurately calculate the precise dimensions and material requirements for the project.

Traditional instruments like theodolites, levels, and tapes are used by surveyors along with more contemporary equipment like GPS (Global Positioning System) receivers and 3D laser scanners to collect data about a site. The resulting detailed maps, drawings, and models are then used by architects, engineers, and construction workers to direct the building process.

Overall, surveying is essential to ensuring that construction projects are completed safely, effectively, and in accordance with all necessary rules and specifications.

Why is a surveyor needed in the construction industry?

Here are the essential reasons why a Surveyor is needed in the construction industry:
  • Measurements of angles and distances between particular points on the earth's surface are required of surveyors.
  • Some significant feature points are located by traveling based on reference points.
  • The records pertaining to the land, the survey, and the land titles have been thoroughly investigated.
  • Finding the boundary lines requires looking for any remnants of the previous boundaries that may still be visible on the property.
  • Surveys are conducted, and the outcomes are documented. The accuracy and corrections are later confirmed.
  • The corresponding reports of the surveyed site are created based on the observed records, plots, and maps.
  • The clients and the appropriate government agencies are shown the survey's results.
  • The established boundaries for the official use of land and water. These are set up through leases or deeds.

Many Civil Engineers especially fresher Civil Engineers get confused about Quantity Surveying and Surveying, let us clear these points.

Difference between Quantity Surveying and Surveying?

At various stages of the project, a quantity surveyor creates cost estimates, budgets, cashflow statements, cost reports, and tender documents, sends inquiries, conducts negotiations, finalizes contracts, manages those contracts, certifies payments, and much more., Identifying a point's terrestrial or three-dimensional position as well as the distances and angles between it is the technique, profession, and science of surveying, also known as land surveying. 

Who is responsible to do Surveying in the construction industry?

 Property boundaries are marked and measured by surveyors, who also gather and offer geographic data to engineers and building companies. For both public and private lands, they draw boundaries. Surveyors are necessary to pinpoint the locations of new construction projects like bridges, buildings, and roads for the real estate and construction industries.

How CivilGuruji is helping you to learn SURVEYING?

This Course Teaches You Advanced Surveying With Total Station and Auto level. The objective of the course is to provide basics of digital surveying and mapping of the earth's surface using total station & Auto level. The total station works on the principle of electronic distance measurement techniques. basic skills are essential for the surveyor for his good carrier in highway construction and building construction and Auto level is used for leveling in highway and building construction with two important methods (HI method and Rise and Fall method).
Key Features of Total station and Auto level are:

  1. Parts of Total Station
  2. Parts of auto level
  3. Instrument Setup (Total station)
  4. Instrument Setup (Auto level)
  5. Staff level
  6. Level transfer with the HI method
  7. Contouring and its excel
  8. Profile leveling
  9. FRL spotting on highway
  10. Inverted leveling staff
  11. Spot Level
