Survey

What it is.

Detail is Key

A Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) survey is typically associated with engineering-level projects to provide highly detailed topographic basemaps with a heavy emphasis on Right-of-Way (ROW) and utility data. Many SDOT survey projects are focused on utility extensions or upgrades and Street Improvement Permits (SIP) within the city of Seattle Jurisdiction. Attention to detail is critical on these project types, and you can trust our team to get it right the first time, mapping with complete accuracy all on- and off-site improvements.

SDOT/SIP Surveys

How it Works.

Checking Every List

SDOT/SIP projects have significantly exacting CAD standards, line-types, Right-of-Way/street mapping (50 feet beyond project limits and all intersections within those mapping limits), utility information (including extensive City Vault research of historical records), specific sheet sizes, and additional requirements that are quite involved. We are very familiar with the necessary checklists to get the drawing prepared to their specifications.
