As-Constructed Survey

As-Constructed surveys are the location and identification of constructed services, earthworks and buildings etc associated with new development. 

What is an As Constructed Survey?

The purpose of the as-constructed survey is to confirm that the services such as sewer, stormwater, water, roads and associated earthworks and retaining walls, etc. have been constructed per the specifications on the council approved operational works plans. These as-constructed drawings form part of the documentation required by Private Building Certifiers and civil engineers to show that the construction is conforming to the approved plans.

Why is it essential to have a As-Constructed Survey?

Building certification and council “on maintenance” will not be granted unless these as-constructed surveys agree with the approved plans.

Frequently Asked Questions About Construction Surveys in Brisbane?

Construction surveying involves the measurement and mapping of a construction site to determine its boundaries, topography, and other features that are relevant to the construction process. 

The main types of construction surveying include: 

  • Topographic surveying: This type of surveying involves measuring and mapping the surface features of a construction site, such as hills, valleys, and other natural and man-made features.
  • Boundary surveying: This type of surveying is used to determine the legal boundaries of a construction site and to ensure that the construction project is within those boundaries.
  • Construction staking: This involves the use of markers or stakes to indicate the location of proposed structures, roads, and other features of the construction project.
  • As-built surveying: This type of surveying is conducted after construction is complete and involves measuring and mapping the location of all the constructed features.

The cost of construction surveys can vary depending on several factors, such as the type of survey required, the size and complexity of the construction site, and the specific surveying company or professional you choose to work with. 

In general, basic construction surveys, such as boundary surveys, may cost several hundred to a few thousand dollars. Topographic surveys, which involve more detailed mapping of a construction site, may cost more, typically ranging from a few thousand to several thousand dollars.
