Earthworks surveying can be as important as determining boundary lines in many construction projects. This is especially true in large-scale projects such as residential development, roads, railways and other government infrastructure.
Earthworks usually involve either the removal or placement of soil or land mass on a particular area. For this purpose, surveyors calculate the volumes of cuts and embankment fills. This is essential in preparing the site for actual construction.
Why is earthworks surveying important?
First, it aids in accurate planning. The volumes of cuts and embankment fills will help engineers in the planning of costs and timelines. In large-scale earthworks, the removal or placement of soil can take weeks (and even months) before any construction activity commences. Accurate information can help engineers set clear expectations and create realistic plans.
How professionals handle it
Because of the accuracy’s importance, construction firms are careful to choose a surveying company. Keep in mind that accurate measurements can speed up a construction project (whether for determining boundary lines or earthwork volumes). Accuracy can also help developers save on costs.
For instance, the accurate calculation of earthwork volumes will lead to accurate payment to contractors. You will only be paying for the amount of work done. In addition, you will minimise the necessity for import or export of material.
Professional surveyors accomplish this by performing constant verification of measurements. This is the case especially with experienced surveyors. They can spot an error early on before any excavation or construction activity begins.
