Crew is staking out some property corners for a new subdivision.

Concrete guy comes up and says; "You guys have done excellent work for us in the past but this stuff here you did is crap."

Party Chief; "We aren't staking any curb and gutter."

Concrete guy; "But you're here surveying."

Party Chief; "For the property corners on our plat. The contractor (them) hired out their own surveyor".

Concrete guy; "#$%&##" as he stomps off.

Sounds like you may be getting the next curb and gutter job.

Most lot corners should be at the same offset from the back of curb and block corners should fall at radius point.

We haven't been involved with the street improvements, the topo, boundary, platting and lot corners were plenty. I know that's what we would all prefer to do. If the contractor wants to hire out a layout guy there is plenty of site control set out there to use.

There was an old surveyor around here (now deceased) who would pull the frontage distance down the back of curb and then pull the offset (usually 13 feet for a 50 foot R/W) and drive a pin.  If you knew what he did it was usually pretty easy to follow his work.
