AN INTRODUCTION TO SITE SURVEYS
Original Presentation Date: January 13th, 2021
A quality design begins with having accurate site information. The process of collecting site data should be efficient and more importantly thorough. Establishing a comprehensive site survey routine will allow time to be better spent developing a design tailor-made for its eventual home.
- Assess the potential pool site area and determine what appurtenances, landmarks, or other features will be necessary to document and consider throughout the swimming pool design process.
- Identify all necessary house characteristics that will influence the design of the swimming pool.
- Apply basic surveying techniques to determine the elevation of critical benchmarks as well as spot elevations of the existing grades within and when necessary, beyond the primary build site.
- Illustrate and memorialize all collected field data into AutoCad or preferred design software.
