As-Builts and Mortgage Surveys
These surveys are typically used for buying/selling a home or planning for a new addition. As-Built surveys locate improvements on a site relative to the property lines. Features shown on these include buildings, sheds, driveways, and other visible, above ground improvements. As-builts also show easements recorded on the
Lot Stake/Boundary Survey
If you’re building a new fence, developing a vacant lot or just wondering where the extents of your property are, LCG Lantech can perform a lot stake survey. During a lot
LCG Lantech begins a plot plan by completing an as-built survey of your property to locate and show all improvements. Once these have been located, a topographic survey is performed to show drainage and the lay of the land on your site. The new proposed additions or structures are shown on the as-built survey to create the plot plan. Plot plans are useful for determining the best location to add an improvement while making sure to avoid building in property line setbacks or existing easements. Plot plans stamped by a State of Alaska, Registered Professional Surveyor are typically required in some jurisdictions in Alaska before proceeding with construction.
These vary from small sites to surveying the whole property to observe the slope of the land for future development. Part of doing these involves getting tied into existing local control for vertical elevations, then measurements are taken across the subject land which we then generate contours and slopes to show on the plan. These are useful for determining where to build a new home and where to build a new road. The topography may be required to reference a vertical benchmark that has a known elevation. This can be referred to as a vertical datum and is commonly referenced in Anchorage as GAAB 72. Contour maps are generated from topographic surveys.
Building a new structure on a lot throughout the state requires property research to verify the building is not being placed in an easement or too close to the property line. LCG Lantech provides a service for staking out foundation corners to help assure that the building you are planning to construct ends up in the same spot per the plan you designed it from. Information from a plot plan is used to determine the location of the building relative to the lot lines. LCG Lantech can also provide construction staking for roads, excavation, cell phone towers, and other proposed structures.
Platting and Subdividing
A process by which lot lines are created or removed from a parcel of land. LCG Lantech has extensive experience performing subdivisions throughout the state. An as-built survey, topographic survey and search for existing monuments may be needed. The region you’re in defines which platting authority to use and the requirements for the plat. An example of a local jurisdiction would be an area such as Anchorage; an example of a borough
