Why Feature and Level Surveys Are An Important Part of Land Subdivision Development

Tim Graham

Land subdivision development can be a great way to improve your community and establish a subdivision that people will be excited and proud to live in, and it can be lucrative as well. However, for it to go well, you have to handle the planning stages properly. For example, you may need to work with a professional, licensed land surveyor for help with feature and level surveys. These surveys are typically an important part of land subdivision development and usually should not be skipped for these reasons and more.

Find Out Where Utility Lines Should Go

Of course, having utilities installed is one of the first and most important things that you will need to do when developing land into a subdivision. Sewage lines, electric lines, cabling for telephone and internet and more will have to be installed, and you will need to determine the best places for these utilities to be installed. You will also need to be aware of any utility lines that might already be existing on the land. A feature and level survey can help you be aware of existing utility lines and can make it easier for you and the utility installers to determine where the new utility lines should be installed.

Determine if Earthmoving Needs to Be Done

In some cases, earthmoving needs to be done so that construction of homes can begin in a new subdivision. For example, you might need to have low-lying areas built up with additional dirt to help prevent flooding. If there are hills on the land, then it's important to know about where they are located so that either earthmoving can be done or so that builders can plan accordingly when planning to build homes and other structures on the property.

Determine Placement of Trees

Having trees on the property can be a good thing since people who will be moving to the subdivision will probably like having the shade and will like the nice aesthetic that they offer. If you want to avoid taking out any more trees than necessary, you will probably like having a feature and level survey done so that you will know exactly where all of the trees are located in the subdivision. Then, proper planning can be done when putting in roads, plotting out land for individual houses to be built and more.

Pay Attention to Existing Structures and Fences

If there is existing fencing on or around the property, or if there are any existing homes and structures, you will obviously need to know about them when you're doing your planning for your subdivision. Luckily, a properly done feature and level survey should show you existing structures and fences.

Hello! My name is Richard and this is my new blog. On this blog, I hope to pass on some useful information about how to work with contractors. I recently decided that I wanted to give my property a complete overhaul. I wanted to have a new roof installed, the interior remodelled and the driveway repaired. I asked around and I put together a great team of contractors who could all work together to get the job done. However, that isn't to say there wasn't the occasion challenge during such a big project. I learnt a lot from the experience and I am really pleased with the work that the contractors carried out.
