Job Description for Survey Party Chief

Surveying is a crucial early step in the construction of buildings, roads, bridges, and other structures. Accurate surveys of potential construction sites play a key role when determining design, costs, planning processes, and even the feasibility of a potential project. The survey party chief supervises the work performed by surveying groups in the field. As a supervisor, the survey party chief is first involved in the planning portion of ground surveys. They research previous surveys and any relevant building documentation for the plot of land for the current survey. The chief then schedules how many surveying parties will be needed and creates a plan for accurate determination of distances, gradients, and other necessary components of a useful survey.
