Technical land surveying covers most localisation needs that do not require legal analysis. For example, construction survey. The principal objective for a technical survey is to map the ground surface in order to facilitate the design process and allow the client to determine the best possible emplacement for the installation of a structure or even follow the progression of a construction. In order to do that, it might be necessary to do different types of surveys. A technical survey may include one or many of the following elements :

  • Establishment of horizontal and vertical control points
  • Preparation of a site plan (topographic plan)
  • Ground implantation of the structure
  • Measure and verification of the emplacement of what’s being constructed
  • Determination of the scope of the work done (fill or excavation, volumes, pipeline, dam, etc..)

Since about 20 years, the Ministery for Natural resources of Québec has been proceeding in the preparation of a new cadastral plan where each property will be represented distinctively. The surveys presently being done are given to private land surveying firms. Owners do not have to pay for the cadastral renewal work, but have a certain duty, such as to collaborate when needed and participate in the public consultations.

Migué & Fournier Land Surveyors Inc. actively participated in the process, sometimes as expert, notably in the Farnham, Bedford and Sutton regions.
