Before undertaking any type of major construction it is important to survey the area. Key things to consider will be the current conditions of the site, existing buildings, underground infrastructure such as pipes and cabling, confirming the exact locations of new structures and referencing anything to be aware of before embarking on a project.
Any construction project requires careful planning and understanding of cost, time and complexity. Reliable, accurate information is vital to avoid costly errors.
