What is an Existing Conditions Survey?

Existing conditions surveys are used for the design of a site plan for a proposed new development or a redesign of an existing development. They include all of the elements of topographic surveys and full boundary surveys to ensure proper site design. A list of structures and improvements to the property would also be included in the report.

Why Would I Need an Existing Conditions Survey?

Performing an existing conditions survey allows an architect or engineer to move forward with construction of a new property or redesign of an existing property. Typically, someone working with or for a civil engineering firm would request this survey. However, anyone that requires a survey for a proposed new development, no matter how big or small, would need an existing conditions survey.

At Northam Survey, we have provided existing conditions surveys to homeowners who have needed something as small as a renovation, all the way up to architects with proposed multiple-story business buildings.

2. Boundary lines and found boundary monuments

3. Existing site features, such as driveways, structures, decks, etc.
