The Ontario Land Surveyor provides essential services in the building construction process. We accurately define the building location relative to property limits. We confirm with local municipalities by-law conformances, provide horizontal and vertical references for construction purposes, and issue various certificates required when required.

Our construction layout provides a wide range of services to the engineering and construction industries. All layout and data collection is carried out with state-of-the-art equipment, supported by software, tailored to maintain productive central control. Construction layout tasks are supported with hard copy plots as well as digital information upon request.

  • Grade Certification. Establish vertical benchmarks to allow certification of grades and as-built elevations of the buildings as required for two stage building permits or associated municipal requirements
  • Monitoring Structures. For deep excavations and construction near existing structures, a variety of horizontal and vertical monitoring services can verify the correct alignment of the structures, or deformation of adjacent structures
