When you purchase something, you make sure to find out exactly what you’re buying. After all, you’re spending your hard-earned money – you should know what you’re paying for. This should be the same for purchasing land. This is where a land survey comes into play. Not only do surveys help plot out the land but surveyors are used in the design and planning of said land to make room for things like roads, utilities and landscaping. It may seem to many that surveying land is a fairly new concept, but it is one of the oldest professions the world has ever known. Land surveys have dated back thousands of years to Egyptian surveyors dividing land along the Nile River and Australian surveyors trying to design their early settlements. Even famous explorers like Burke and Wills used their surveying background in their work. Yes, it may seem like a new-found industry, but we’ve needed land surveying for as long as we’ve had land to develop.
But why are they so intricate to creating our structures? Believe it or not, but it isn’t just about plotting open spaces to place buildings and other structures upon. Surveyors work with lots of other important industries like engineering, geology, architecture and planning in order to create a successful construction site. They measure the land and map it all out before anyone even steps foot on the site. These findings are given to the architects, who create a blueprint based on the needs of the client. Once complete, engineers use those plans to create a structure that will be successful based on the land available. So, as you can see, land surveys are the environmental trackers of structural design.
