Construction surveys can consist of two types. There are land surveys for the purpose of building level structures, and then there are satisfaction surveys. Here is a comparison of these two types of surveys, their purposes and what they can accomplish for your construction business.
When you provide dozens of clients and consumers with your construction services, it helps to have some sort of feedback on the completed work. You and your crew get paid for completed work regardless of the job, but you only know if the job was bad if you get sued. You never really know if the jobs completed were satisfactory, good or exceptional.
At the close of each project, you can ask your customers to fill out a brief satisfaction survey online to help determine where your company needs to improve. If you do the surveys online, then there is plenty of anonymity, and the customers are more likely to fill it out for you. In addition to getting feedback you need, you could offer a small discount on future services if clients and customers are satisfied with the work you did.
Despite the fact that many plots of land are previously surveyed by county and state surveyors, it helps to survey the land again before you begin building. Land, rocks and trees change, shift and grow respectively, changing the way the land lays and sits. Viewing and assessing the land helps you determine how and where to build, and present a building plan to the property owner. This in turn may impress the land owner enough to provide you with a better-than-radiant review or customer satisfaction survey.
Contrasts and Relations of These Survey Types
One type of survey views and assesses the land on which you will build. The other type of survey views and assesses the work you and your crew have completed. The former helps you prepare to build and present a building plan to the land owner, while the latter helps you understand what the land or property owner expected and would like to see different in your work. Both help you become an accomplished construction contractor, but in different ways. It is also important to note that while satisfaction surveys are not a requirement to build or offer services to clients and consumers, land surveys are. Still, you should consider utilizing both in your daily operations.
