BUILDER PACKAGES & CONSTRUCTION LAYOUT
A Builder's Package is comprised of surveys and other related documents designed for residential or commercial new construction. It typically includes 3 or 4 site visits or "trips" based on the community's permitting requirements. In addition to the survey documents traditionally included in a standard Builder's Package, R.W. Krebs also provides No Work Affidavits, Piling Layouts and Staking of House Corners. For more detailed information on Builder Packages, please click the button below.
Construction Layout is the placement of horizontal and vertical control points from the plan which are located on the ground to aid the contractor in the completion of the project such as roadways, pilings, building corners, ramps, sewer, water, drainage, etc.

WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN ORDERING YOUR SURVEY
An ALTA Survey is one made for the Title Company and/or Lender and is used for the issuing of title or mortgage insurance. For this purpose, a survey map is drawn to the specifications of the American Land Title Association or “ALTA”. The client provides a completed "Table A" which is essentially a checklist of information required as part of the survey work.
Typical ALTA requirements include boundary lines, location of the main building including improvements, location of ancillary buildings, the identification of easements (access rights by service companies such as water, gas, telephone, railways and other utilities). ALTA surveys are very complex surveys and can cost several thousands of dollars and take weeks to complete. For that reason most ALTA surveys are performed on commercial properties.
An ALTA Land Survey guarantees to meet the requirements for an ALTA/ACSM Land Title Survey as detailed by the American Land Title Association, National Society of Professional Surveyors and the American Congress on Surveying and Mapping.

Subdivision Plats show the division of your land into individual lots, including new roads, property for easements, parks, areas needed for flood protection and other public uses. Plats also ensure compliance with zoning regulations, such as lot sizes and lot geometry.
Topographic Surveys are used to identify and map the contours of the ground and existing surface and sub-surface features such as trees, buildings, streets, walkways, manholes, utility poles, etc. A Topographic Survey may also include boundaries and easements for planning purposes. and is often used as a base map in the design of a residence, building or roadway. Topographic Surveys require "Benchmarks" to which ground contours and other information are related.
