what we do

Construction Surveying

Translating plans into the built environment

Construction staking is a crucial step in the building process. Our surveyors understand construction plans and specifications, and accurately layout reference points and markers to guide construction as intended by the designer. Parametrix survey crews have performed construction staking and as-built surveys on a variety of projects ranging from simple to highly complicated construction. We are known for our creative, out-of-the-box solutions to challenges that arise in the field.
