High Definition Video and Photographic Services

Protectonic performs high definition video and photographic pre construction inspections, also called existing condition surveys or building envelope surveys. We actively survey any structures within the required radius.  These surveys document all physical conditions of a home, business, and around a construction site. Protectonic provides these services in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx, and Staten Island.

What is a Pre Construction Survey?


A pre construction survey is needed to provide a baseline record of all pre existing conditions of properties surrounding an excavation project that requires blasting. These surveys are also performed before other types of excavation and vibratory work.  Municipalities require that a pre construction survey is offered before a contractor can start work. If you receive this offer of a survey, please respond within the given time frame. These codes are in place to protect all parties involved.  

Pre construction surveys provide the security of an independent study of properties near the construction area. These records may then be referenced to determine if the construction activity has had any affect on these structures.

What happens after I schedule an appointment? 

The pre construction survey is a comprehensive cosmetic record of your property to record conditions prior to construction projects. After making an appointment that is convenient for you, one of our expert field technicians will visit your business or residence. The technician will thoroughly video the visible surfaces within your structure. A laser light will be used to point out any imperfections that are also audibly described.
