Construction Staking – What’s the Point?
The construction industry is transitioning to digital processes, BIM, automation, and reality capture. Many trades are operating tools and equipment that traditionally were the exclusive terrain of land surveyors. In light of these threats, should we even perform construction staking services anymore? This fast moving discussion will cover threats to this aspect of our profession and how to mitigate them, benefits that land surveyors bring to the table, and a roadmap for the future of surveyors in this industry.
We will be meeting at On The Boarder in Dublin.
It is located at 4940 Dublin Blvd, Dublin, CA 94568 inside the Hacienda Crossings shopping center.
A buffet dinner will be served for $40 per person.
