Union contractors have openings right now for men and women to work as construction surveyors!
Construction companies are currently seeking qualified candidates to go to work as construction surveyors as soon as possible on road, highway, bridge, and other outdoor construction and transportation infrastructure projects. If hired, you would become a member of the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 150, one of the strongest and highly-paid construction unions in America.
Construction surveyors measure, inspect, update, and document property boundaries using specialized surveying instruments, GPS (global positioning systems), and GIS (geographic information systems) technologies. They survey the site to gather information, provide precise measurements, and create digital maps and detailed reports. A construction surveyor advises clients, architects, and construction managers of any on-site conditions they should be aware of and performs layout work. Construction surveyors often work with construction companies or real estate development firms and split their time between construction sites and an office environment.
