Construction Benchmarks

60d nail set in power pole adjacent to house site.

A construction benchmark is the term used in reference to a benchmark established for construction sites and serves as an established or known elevation on a job site.  The elevation height of improvements on the site must be referenced off a set elevation, referred to as a benchmark.

The physical benchmark is normally located on a solid surface that will not be disturbed or vary throughout the project.  Common examples are a large nail driven in a wooden power pole or a surveyor’s mark on a metal light pole.  The benchmark on a project is a key, essential marking for the project, and must be protected from being damaged or lost.

In addition to setting or establishing the physical benchmark on the job site, we provide written certification describing the actual marker, its location, and the elevation height of the benchmark.
