Make Sure Legal Aspects Are Respected

Layout operations are regulated by the by the Regulation respecting standards of practice for staking and layout of the Ordre des arpenteurs-géomètres du Québec (L.R.Q., c. A-23, r. 11).

Layout involves using visual landmarks to identify how a building that will be renovated or constructed will be positioned. The projected structure may be positioned:

  • In relation to property boundaries
  • In relation to other existing structures
  • In relation to axes
  • In relation to any other landmark element

Conducted by a qualified land surveyor, layout is a land-surveying operation that ensures the building to be built or renovated will conform to municipal laws regarding applicable clearances in the area.

To properly delineate excavation and position the foundation, the land surveyor can install posts or iron wires on the lot.

All the work done by the land surveyor is provided along with a certificate of layout. The document comes in the form of a plan and serves as written proof of the conformity of the work done.
