WHAT IS A SITE PLAN?
Site plans and certificates are official documents that establish the position of a future construction on a lot. Regardless of the nature of the construction (garage, shed, extension, pool, etc.), your municipality may ask you for a site plan to obtain your building permit. This document shows that the location chosen for your new construction is indeed within the limits of your property and at an authorized distance from adjoining properties.
The land surveyor is the only professional who can certify that your construction project complies with current laws and regulations. In addition to determining the ideal zones for construction, he will help you choose the best location and guide you in planning your project.

THE PROCESS OF A CONSTRUCTION PROJECT
Once you have your construction plan in hand, the land surveyor produces the site plan. This document allows you to obtain all the necessary authorizations to carry out your project, particularly from the municipal authorities. Once you have obtained your building permit, the professional surveyor will move to position the future construction on the planned site. He will then deliver the site certificate confirming that the work has been carried out in accordance with the permits issued.
