Land Surveying Services ? Why It Is Necessary for Telecommunications Industries

Posted by Calvada on April 11th, 2017

Land surveying is a must for every new or existing construction, including the setup of telecommunications towers and facilities. In fact, every engineering project in the telecommunications industry will require land surveying services for the development and design of their structures. Telecommunications companies must put up towers to boost their reception and provide their services to a wider area. However, they need to make sure that they are building structures without encroaching on owned land. This is where land surveying services matter.

One of the most common applications of land surveying services in the telecommunications industry is when a phone company must put up a cell tower on rural property. The company cannot simply build a tower anywhere they please. In fact, the process of building a cell tower usually involves a lot of negotiations, land surveying, and planning. Land surveyors are called in by telecommunications companies to conduct surveys, which must be done according to industry and government regulations. When building on vacant land, a telecommunications company will require a boundary survey along with specialty surveys like the raw land tower site survey. When two cellphone companies must build on the same land, they will require land surveying services that can help ensure the safety and efficiency of the area to have multiple facilities on it.

ALTA/ACSM land title surveys are necessary to the telecommunications industry, too. Also, known as ‘due diligence surveys’, they are conducted to aid telecommunications companies when buying or leasing land for their projects. The surveys can identify potential risks and the benefits of that land by providing data on property easements and boundaries, and information, which may be helpful when planning improvements on a land. Likewise, the survey can provide information on certain features of the land that may determine or affect the ownership of the property, and information that may require more investigation when there is a possibility of violating ownership rights.

Land surveying services must be conducted by professional land surveyors who use high-end equipment like 3D laser scanners and GPS for accurate, faster, and highly precise results. Advanced 3D laser scanning can help in the updating and creation of as-built documentation to provide data to the telecommunications company when determining easement and lease issues.
