DRPE has the expertise to provide stakeout for many types of construction projects from earthwork, roads, and highways, bridges, buildings, piping systems, to steel erection.  We utilize programmable construction software on our surveying instruments to minimize field calculations.  The construction data for the stakeout is programmed and calculated in the office atmosphere and uploaded by a computer to the surveying equipment.  The software then allows the party chief to easily determine cuts, fills, offsets, alignment points, etc. The stakeout data is stored by the surveying equipment and downloaded and checked at the office each day.  Some of our job specific construction surveying includes:


• Grade staking of station cut and fill for highway and earthwork projects
• Horizontal and Vertical curve stakeouts for highway projects
• Fine grade “blue top” stakeouts
• Curb and gutter stakeout
• Sanitary and storm sewer stakeout
• Pipes and culverts
• Bridges
• Footers and foundations
• Column lines
