What is a site plan? This plan shows the location where you would like your future residence or building to be constructed with respect to the property lines. It also shows existing buildings as well as the different regulations and constraints the minimum setbacks, wetland, watercourse, areas at risk, etc.).

How do we proceed? The site plan is the phase of a project where we draw the position of a future building or construction. This is done according to your needs but also taking into account existing constraints (e.g., the minimum setbacks in accordance with the municipal zoning by-law, watercourse and wetland, at risk areas, etc.). This is a way to ensure that future construction follows the zoning regulations as well as any other applicable by-laws.

To prepare this plan, a field survey will be made to validate the existing marks of occupation and other structures that may be present on the property. Searches are made at the registry office in order to position the existing constraints on the plan. Documents from other professionals involved in your project, such as the architect and the septic engineer will also be used.

Next step

As soon as your site plan is completed, you will be able to request your building permit. We will then be able to proceed with the implantation.

What is an implantation? An implantation aims to place physical markers on your property that will determine the limits of the structure you are planning to build.

How do we proceed with an implantation? Your land surveyor will conduct the implantation as shown on the site plan. Physical markers such as metal or wooden stakes will be placed on your property. These markers will be very accurately positioned to ensure the quality of the work you will undertake. Every operation made on your property will also be noted in a notebook.

As soon as the implantation is completed, a layout certificate will be provided. This plan shows the operations that were made on your property and also confirms that the mandate was fulfilled. On this plan, you will find, among other information, your name, the date of the implantation, the setbacks in accordance with the municipality, the existing and proposed structures, the type of markers placed, the different constraint zones as well as the servitudes affecting your property.

When do we proceed with the implantation? As soon as you obtain your building permit and are ready to start construction

Don’t forget, once your construction project has been completed, you will need a certificate of location to confirm compliance of the work.

It is always a good idea to contact your land surveyor before starting a new project. Your land surveyor will be able to inform you of existing constraints and servitudes on your property, which will save you time and money.
