As Staked Drawings

The as Staked drawings are what is used by the contractor to install the various components of the irrigations system. These drawings come from the irrigation design that was created from CAD files by LRDG. These files were taken into the field utilizing GPS technology to site the specific items for installation.

This will be the first of several as staked drawings, because each of the components is installed in layers. The first items that are placed are the mainline and all of the isolation valves. The next items that will be sited are the sprinkler heads.

As each of the items are installed, they will be re-shot by GPS creating accurate as built plans of where everything is located. In the future if there are any problems, I will be able to go back out and quickly locate and identify what component is causing the problem.
