Responsive and Accurate Staking Services are Critical for the Construction Phase of Your Project – and No Firm Understands Better than Compass Surveying.

Since 1983, Compass Surveying has staked thousands of foundations and miles of roadways and tens of thousands of utility manholes for land development and infrastructure projects throughout the region.

What is Construction Staking?

Construction staking, also called site layout, is the process of placing stakes in the field that mark the location and elevation of proposed grades, detention ponds, utility structures, curb and gutter, buildings or any other improvements as shown on the approved engineering design drawing or architectural plans. These stakes are set for each stage of construction – from rough grading to completion.

Our expert field superintendent and experienced crew chiefs are responsible for each phase of staking services, providing coordination and communication between the contractor, engineer, architect, and field crew to ensure that the job is performed accurately and on schedule.

Our veteran field technicians use Trimble RTK GPS along with Trimble Robotic Total Stations and collectors for all construction staking and layout work for maximum productivity and efficiency. These field crews are fully supported by an office staff of professional land surveyors and CAD technicians who assist them by answering questions, resolving plan discrepancies and communicating any changes or revisions to engineering design plans.
