After the foundation walls are poured for a structure being built, LDP can conduct a foundation survey to measure its dimensions, location and elevation to ensure that it has been poured within specifications before the builder resumes the construction process.
Unlike more comprehensive surveys, a foundation survey focuses simply on the foundation of a structure, providing an effective “snapshot” of the foundation as of a certain date. A surveyor from LDP will come on property (usually at the builder or lender’s request) to document this critical stage of construction. The survey will plot the location and dimensions relative to property lines, and/or in comparison with previous site plans or plats.
