Straub offers a variety of construction as-built services including surveys of anchor bolts, site improvements, and building pads. As-built surveys of anchor bolts are performed prior to erecting steel columns, and are typically performed for the steel contractor. Site improvement as-builds are often requires to help the owner know how improvements were made relative to the plans. Building pad surveys are done to ensure that the material is indeed within the building footprint and to the correct grade.
