A Topographical Survey, also known as a “topo survey” is a detailed mapping of the natural and man-made features of a piece of land.

Condominium Conversion Plans

Navigating condominium conversions? We create precise Condominium Conversion Plans that meet regulatory requirements and facilitate smooth transitions from multi-unit buildings to individual units.

Let’s explore the world of Condominium Conversion Plans:

Definition and Purpose:

  • A Condominium Conversion Plan is a specialized survey prepared by land surveying companies. It serves as a crucial component when transforming existing apartments or other residential units into individually owned condominiums for sale.

  • The primary purpose of these plans is to define the boundaries of the condominium project and delineate the area inside each exclusively owned condominium unit.

What’s Included:

  • Unit Boundaries: The plan clearly outlines the boundaries of each individual living unit within the condominium.

  • Common Areas: It identifies other areas, both inside and outside the units, that are either commonly owned or have limited exclusive rights.

  • Legal Descriptions: Ultimately, the plan provides a legal description for each living unit, ensuring clarity for buyers and legal compliance.

  • Types of Properties Covered:

  • New Construction: Condominium Conversion Plans are prepared for newly constructed condominiums.

  • Existing Apartments: They are also essential for existing apartments that are being converted into condominiums for sale.

Key Components:

  • Layout Details: Graphically depict the layout, location, and dimensions of each unit.

  • Common Areas: Show the layout and dimensions of common areas and facilities.

  • Easements: Indicate the location and dimensions of any appurtenant easements.

  • Certification: The drawings bear the certified statement of a registered land surveyor, registered architect, or licensed professional engineer, ensuring accuracy.


  • Ownership Transfer: As a requirement for ownership transfer, these plans provide essential documentation.

  • Legal Compliance: They comply with regulations and ensure transparency in condominium sales.

  • Buyer Confidence: Buyers can make informed decisions based on accurate unit descriptions and common area details.

Condominium Conversion Plans play a vital role in the real estate landscape, bridging the gap between existing structures and new ownership opportunities

Construction Layout & Staking

Builders, architects, and contractors count on us for Construction Layout & Staking services. We mark precise locations for construction projects, ensuring alignment with design plans.

Construction Layout & Staking, a critical service provided by land surveying companies:

What Is Construction Staking?

  • Construction staking, also known as construction layout, involves precisely marking the ground where buildings, utility systems, and other improvements will be placed on a construction site.

  • Surveyors use blueprints, schematics, and building plans to map out physical dimensions at the site, ensuring accurate placement of future improvements.

Key Components of Construction Staking:

  • Site Grading: Determining elevations and contours for proper land preparation.

  • Exterior and Interior Walls: Marking the locations of walls based on the building plans.

  • Utility Systems: Staking out plumbing, electrical, and other utility lines.

  • Gutters and Storm Drainage: Ensuring proper drainage paths.

  • Driveways and Sidewalks: Precisely locating access points and walkways.

Importance of Construction Staking:

  • Required Step: Modern construction projects rely on construction staking. Without it, navigating interconnected building elements would be challenging.

  • Smooth Progress: Early detection of problems prevents delays. Surveyors analyze plans to catch discrepancies before construction begins.

  • Consistent Progress: Quality staking ensures steady project advancement.

  • Problem Resolution: Time to address site issues like erosion or adverse weather conditions.

Types of Construction Staking:

  • Rough Grade Construction Staking: Early mapping for general locations of buildings, parking, and infrastructure based on final elevation and grading plans.

  • Site Layout Staking: Detailed placement of structures, roads, walkways, and other elements during construction.

Construction staking transforms 2D plans into a 3D layout, allowing contractors to work efficiently and ensuring project success.

Subdivision Layout & Design

When dividing land into smaller parcels, our Subdivision Layout & Design services ensure equitable distribution. We handle the intricacies of lot divisions, setbacks, and access points.

What Is Subdivision Layout & Design?

  • Subdivision Layout & Design involves creating detailed plans for dividing larger parcels of land into smaller lots or units. These smaller parcels can be used for residential, commercial, or industrial purposes.

  • Surveyors and engineers collaborate to design the layout, ensuring efficient land use, proper infrastructure, and compliance with local regulations.

Key Components of Subdivision Layout & Design:

Preliminary Design:

  • Identify access points, utility connections, and potential extensions.

  • Create lot layouts, design streets, and plan utility routing.

  • Establish a preliminary construction budget based on the concept.

Parcel Creation & Easements:

  • Prepare legal descriptions for individual parcels.

  • Coordinate utility placement and access points.

  • Establish easements and address property constraints

Grading & Storm water Management:

  • Design grading to ensure proper drainage.

  • Calculate earthwork volumes using 3D site models.

  • Discuss design alternatives and earthwork costs with contractors.

Importance of Subdivision Layout & Design:

  • Efficient Land Use: Well-designed subdivisions optimize available space.

  • Infrastructure Planning: Proper road networks, utilities, and drainage systems are crucial.

  • Legal Compliance: Detailed plans ensure adherence to local regulations.

  • Cost Estimation: Accurate budgeting based on design concepts.
