“One should aim not at being possible to understand, but at being impossible to misunderstand. “
• Construction Staking
From start to finish, accurate and clear construction staking improves productivity throughout the duration of your project. Modern Landfill provides value-added grade indicators from subgrades to final grades and beyond.
• Proper alignment of pollution controls
• Intermediate quantity topos for items paid by volume
• Confirmation of final grades within specified tolerances
The Importance of High-Quality Construction Staking
Before any real construction begins at your project site, someone will set stakes to guide the work. In many cases, that same someone will return later to set more stakes as the project progresses. The quality of that staking work can significantly impact the efficiency of your work crews on-site and the overall success of the project. Poor staking leads to confusion, misunderstanding, and often incorrect work, while good indicators inspire confidence that construction will move smoothly from site preparation all the way through substantial completion. But what defines quality construction staking?
The Big Three: Accurate . . . Clear . . . Communicative
The most important quality all contractors need from construction stakes is accuracy—the stakes must correctly indicate corners, lines, cut, and fills. Next, the stakes must be clear regarding the features they elucidate. Consistent indications on the stakes are a must—the meaning of symbols should remain constant throughout a project (preferably across all projects). Finally, each stake should communicate its meaning broadly and effectively. Everyone on the job, from the construction foreman to the equipment operators, should be able to easily read the stakes’ intents from a normal working vantage point, on the ground or in the cab.
