Calculations for Construction Staking

Calculations for Construction Staking

At Michael Dequine and Associates, Inc. we coordinate closely with our clients and the project Civil Engineer to obtain a signed set of Improvement Plans.  We also obtain digital drawing files whenever possible and then we carefully review the plans and compute and verify the locations of street grades, sewer, water, and storm drain lines, joint utility trench, and curb, gutter, and sidewalk.  Once verified we coordinate with the project contractor to compute actual points and offset stake locations.  Offset stakes are referenced to specific grades as requested by the contractor.

Quality Control is a critical component of our construction staking services.  After the plans are reviewed and verified, and after our calculations are done, we have a separate in-house review of the data to insure that offsets were computed correctly and that design grades entered into our data collection devices were entered correctly.  Field surveys to set the stakes are then conducted.  After completion of staking, all cuts and fills are reviewed for accuracy and finally each stake is reviewed to insure that it was marked correctly.  Photographs are typically taken of each of our stakes to provide evidence that the stakes were set and to document the grades marked on the stakes.
