New Year – New Construction Projects Ahead

With the beginning of a new year we are pleased to work on many new construction projects. The following are just a few in our pipeline:

McJunkin Farms – Loxahatchee Road , Parkland , FL

Lakewood Road Apartments – Lake Worth, FL

Dania Beach Energy Center – Fort Lauderdale, FL

NW 68th Ave Canal Headwall – Sunrise, FL

With any new construction project comes a set of required services involved in order to develop the new site properly. The first important item is having a Boundary Survey performed. Whether the site is already vacant or there is scheduled demolition in the works, this type of survey can provide the full picture. Aside from existing improvements, the Boundary Survey will likely require additional information such as a more comprehensive utility inspection, including underground, as well as topographic data and or possibly locating elements of improvements.

At Stoner & Associates, we provide the most common surveys that are necessary for any new construction projects, including:

  • Boundary Surveys
  • Topographic Surveys
  • As-Built Surveys
  • FEMA Elevation Certificates
  • Construction Layout Surveys

For new construction projects in South Florida, during the initial permitting stage, the building department verifies that the planned construction complies with the local zoning codes, proper building setback and greenspace requirements as well as the drainage capabilities. With the aid of these surveys and site plans in hand, the process can run smoothly.

As the new construction begins, the contractor will require Construction Layout Surveys or “stakeouts” of proposed improvements although some contractors choose to perform minor layout services themselves if allowed by law.

Additionally, the building department may require periodic As-Built Surveys to ensure that construction is following the planned horizontal and vertical positions. Site grading may require a Topographic Survey to find current ground elevations or stakeout proposed vertical positions. Towards the completion stage of the project, a final Boundary Survey and FEMA Elevation certificate is generally required in order to receive a Certificate of Occupancy.

At Stoner & Associates, we confirm all details regarding the scope of services for any new construction project and look forward to learning about your next new construction project for 2020.



Know Your Flood Zones

Florida, being a state with a significant portion of its landmass near or at sea level, is particularly susceptible to flooding, especially during hurricane season. As a result, flood surveys and elevation surveys are crucial tools used by government agencies, environmental organizations, and urban planners to understand flood risks, manage development, and plan for infrastructure […]
