Construction Staking

RLF Consulting provides professional construction staking services for a wide variety of projects.

Construction staking is the process of taking planned improvements and buildings and then mapping them out on the site where the building will take place. This is the process of analyzing and interpreting architectural and civil engineering plans and calculating appropriate offset survey points and elevations. It also involves placing stakes in the field that mark the location and elevation of proposed grades, detention ponds, utility structures, curb and gutter, buildings or any other improvements as shown on the approved engineering design drawing or architectural plans. These stakes are set for each stage of construction, from rough grading to project completion.

Our field superintendent and experienced crew chiefs oversee each phase of staking services, coordinating the activity between the contractor, engineer, architect and client to ensure job timeliness and accuracy. This process plays a vital role in helping an organization make the leap from plans and blueprints to actual construction work. We can provide you with a lump‐sum fee or “not to exceed” budget for your project based upon our review of preliminary or final engineering plans or architectural drawings.
