Engineering survey

The essence of the engineering survey is to explore the terrain, or provide the customer with information on how it can be improved to a favorable state.

Conducting engineering surveys is a mandatory procedure during the preparation of construction at the planning and design stage as buildings, structures, other construction objects, any process of construction and operation of facilities begins with them because these studies will help reduce risks, prevent accidents, create rational design object scheme and ensure its complete safety.

Also, research materials will help to justify the maximum investment in the construction of an object. Such works are performed for all types of construction: civil, industrial, housing, hydraulic engineering, road, transport, etc. The nature of the survey may vary depending on the degree of knowledge of the surveyed territory and on the type of construction.

Engineering surveys are needed not only during the construction phase, but also in the process of reconstruction or overhaul of old structures. Surveys can be ordered, both at the design stage of the future facility, and comprehensive construction support.

When and why engineering surveys are conducted?

Engineering surveys are carried out to obtain information and the most complete set of data, which will then serve as the basis for compiling:

  • project and pre-project documentation;
  • a package of documents to start construction work;
  • justification of investment activities;
  • documents that will later serve as the basis for creating a topographic plan, town planning and other documents.

What types of work are carried out in the framework of engineering surveys?

The composition of engineering surveys is a whole complex of engineering works on the investigation of the construction site. Main types:

Geodetic surveys

research necessary for the correct assessment of the territory in terms of terrain and the binding of the object to the existing infrastructure. These are works carried out to obtain topographic and geodetic materials necessary for a comprehensive assessment of the natural and man-made conditions of the construction site and to justify the design, construction, operation and disposal of facilities.

Engineering and geological surveys

Consider the geotechnical conditions of the site. They study the physical and mechanical properties of soils and the preparation of engineering-geological sections for the possibility of designing foundations and foundations for buildings or structures.

Environmental Engineering Surveys

Engineering and environmental studies are aimed at reducing the anthropogenic impact on the environment and predicting the impact of construction on the safety of the environment in order to minimize the harmful effects on it. They provide an opportunity to comprehensively investigate the ecological situation of the building plot and identify the existence of conditions for living and conducting various types of activities, as well as the impact of these types of activities on the environment.

Geotechnical surveys for construction

These works are aimed at studying the properties of soils and soil massifs, used as bases of structures, environment for the construction of underground structures, as well as to assess the sustainability of natural and man-made soil massifs, slopes and slopes. They help to assess the hydrogeological conditions of the site, the presence of underground and surface water sources, as well as the meteorological and climatic components of the design area.

Stages of engineering survey

Garant Expert experts collect the necessary information about the object, and also collect and process research materials from previous years.

Experts of the Judicial and non-state construction expertise "GARANT EXPERT" at the facility

Geodetic engineering, topography, aerial surveys and geological studies are carried out here.

Field work may include geodetic measurements, well drilling, sampling for laboratory analysis, field soil testing (sounding, pile testing, etc.), hydrological, environmental observations and measurements, etc.

Garant Expert Moscow - geodetic works

Laboratory works include the treatment of monoliths (samples of the undisturbed structure) of the soil, laboratory tests, chemical analysis of groundwater, etc.

On the basis of such works, the specialists of the laboratory Garant Expert issue tables of soil properties ͵ schedules of their tests, chemical composition of ground water, assessment of its aggressiveness to concrete and metal, etc.

Laboratory Garant Expert

Cameral work is done on the basis of the results of field and laboratory work. At this stage, systematization of field survey materials is carried out, topographic plans, geological sections are drawn up, hydrogeological, climatic, and other characteristics of the design area are analyzed.

The stage ends with the compilation of a technical report that includes originals of topographic plans in digital and graphical form, as well as a number of applications on the results of the work performed, recommendations and conclusions of specialists.

Customer Reviews

What does the term `` engineering surveys`` mean?

Engineering surveys are a set of economic and technical studies carried out to study the technogenic and natural conditions of the territory of building construction objects, taking into account rational use and protection of the environment, as well as obtaining data for predicting environmental changes under the influence of construction and operation of buildings and structures effective technical and economic indicators of design, construction and reconstruction of various types of buildings and structures.

Engineering research involves the study of soil and soil, as they may affect how the construction of the building will be carried out. The presence of high seismic activity, surface waters, far from the best environmental conditions, as well as unstable soil conditions can affect the construction of a structure or even a ban on such activities.

Engineering surveys designed to design a project for a building, structure or complex of objects set themselves the task of obtaining necessary and sufficient information about the man-made and natural conditions of the development site, and also to forecast their possible changes to take the necessary measures at the design stage. Based on the results of such surveys, it is possible to justify the layout of buildings, make space-planning and constructive decisions, make general and situational plans, develop measures for the protection and preservation of the natural environment, and develop a design work plan.

Engineering surveys for the development of working documentation set themselves the task of clarifying the environmental conditions of the construction site and detailing existing surveys of past years. Also, such studies are carried out to clearly define the sphere of interaction of construction objects with the environment, minimize harm to the natural environment and improve the safety of the population.

Engineering surveys, which are performed during the construction of buildings and structures, their operation and liquidation, have the main objectives to improve the reliability, sustainability and operational suitability of the object of study, as well as the protection of human health.
