6. RESPONSIBILITIES: 6.1. The Project Engineer shall direct when and where to start the Surveying Works and establish deadlines for activity to be finished. He shall make sure that Surveying Works shall be finished with-in the time frame set forth on the construction schedule. 6.2. The Site Engineer shall be responsible for the execution of the Surveying Works. 6.3. The QAQC Inspector shall monitor and periodically inspect all the Surveying Works at all times to ensure that setting out and establishing coordinates is correct and conforms to the approved shop drawings related Surveying Works. 6.4. The Surveyor is responsible for executing and leading all the elements of Surveying Works 6.5. The Survey Team composed of at least, but not necessarily limited to the following: Lead Surveyor, Stadia Man, and Helpers is responsible for the execution of the Survey Works.

7. PROCEDURE: The foregoing procedure for the Surveying Works will serve as a guide by the Surveyor together with the SE and QA/QC Inspector along the course of their work in order to achieve an acceptable quality of workmanship and attaining the optimum results with less time and effort: 7.1. PRIMARY CONTROL POINTS a. Locate Permanent Bench Marks (The Municipality Bench Marks) as provided in theContract Document. b. Based on the above bench marks Primary Control Points shall be established by Closed Traversed Method duly check by the consultant. c. The Municipality Bench Marks and the Primary Control Points shall then be plotted showing their coordinates, angles, levels, and distances to form part as Working Drawings for Survey Control Points for approval by the Engineer. d. These Primary Control Points shall be fixed on a steel bar embedded in a solid cast in place concrete. e. Upon approval of the Survey Working Drawings by the Engineer, the surveyor may establish more convenient control points for future setting outs. 7.2. ESTABLISHING WORKING POINTS
7.2.1. Setting Out of working points shall be conveniently located for easy access and as

to avoid future disturbances by impact, vibration and/or settlement as the construction progress.

Page 4 of 10

7.2.2. Enough Working Points shall then be established. These working points will be

used to complete the survey and demarcate the required profiles and stationing as shown on the approved plans. 7.3. STAKING AND GRADING
7.3.1. General

After Clearing and Grubbing works were done (see Method Statement for Clearing and Grubbing) Road Site Grading shall be established to ensure a level base as per specified slope, the base and sub-base course, surface drainage and any other improvements shall be put in place so as to establisha sub-grade or finished contouring that will form a sound foundation by avoiding over cutting of natural ground especially if existing soil is found to be alreadysuitable for the design load of the roadway. A rough grading will be run through the proposed roadway leaving a 200mm clearance above subgrade level manned by a surveyor to avoid overcutting beyond the design subgrade level. After Rough Grading the following sequence of work shall be observed:
7.3.2. Staking Layout

Staking shall be established basing the approved roadway layout and following its intended design cross-sections and profiles (see figure 1: Staking Layout below).

Stake mark for start of road slope side cutting A. Stake mark for end of Side Cutting under design subgrade B. Stake mark for start of first slope of side cutting. C. Stake mark for end of first slope of side cutting. D. Stake mark for start of second slope transition. E. Stake mark for end of second slope side cutting.

B. Laying out of Stake Marks shall be done on a 25-m interval along the proposed roadway to avoid over-cutting as shown below:

Page 7 of 10

C. Wooden Stake shall be used with appropriate marking showing the intended elevations to be cut or filled along the roadway cross-section on a 25m interval. 7.4. TRAVERSING
7.4.1. General

A GPS Total Station shall be used to traverse the entire road networks. The same instrument and/or the theodolite will be employed for Staking and Grading, Road Stationing, Vertical and Horizontal Traverse.
7.4.2. GPS Total Station Traversing

a. The surveyor shall locate the Municipality Bench Mark at the nearest location to the project site, this BM shall be ensured to be correct and updated. b. Coordinates shall be fed to the Total Station from the approved Working Coordinates Plan. c. The surveyor shall start and position his instrument at the Benchmark and feed to the instrument the known BMs coordinate and elevation. d. The surveyor can now conveniently locate and establish the control points for future references. e. After establishing the control points, the surveyor may now start to run the required surveying works such as Staking and Grading, Road Stationing, Road Center Line Setting Out and Line Marking. 7.5. AS-BUILT SURVEY a. As-Built Survey will be conducted as soon as substantial work has been completed. b. Results of the As-built Survey will then be correlated with the proposed or planned coordinates noting any variance or if results is within acceptable limits i.e. coordinates deviation from plan to actual. c. If results is beyond acceptable limits, necessary corrective action shall be made to address the concern. All Subsequent work maybe stop as per instruction by the Engineer until corrective actions has been rectified. d. Results of the Survey shall be kept, tagged, and properly bounded in binder folder.

7.6. SURVEY EQUIPMENT TOLERANCES The Equipment Accuracy for Survey Equipment will be maintained as per Project Specifications.

8. QUALITY:

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
The QA/QC Manager will monitor and ensure that this Method Statement shall be strictly enforced so that smooth Work Flow will be attained. 8.1.In general, our team of Surveyors, Project/Site Engineers and Foremen together with QC Inspectors will ensure that the approved Method statement is being followed and inspections are taking place. In particular, the following shall be taken care of: 8.1.1 Survey equipment/instruments used on site are calibrated. The original Calibration certificates are always kept in store and copies of same are available along with the instrument. 8.1.2 The Surveyors carry out periodical checks to the tolerances of the manufacturer and maintain the relevant records. 8.1.3 Any defective or damaged surveying equipment is properly identified and immediately removed from site. 8.1.4 All Control Points are clearly marked and located on elements which are not likely to be disturbed by impact, vibration, settlement or heave and are checked periodically by the Surveyor. 8.1.5 Regular checking is carried out and its record maintained throughout the construction progress. 8.2 All the measuring and test equipment shall be controlled, calibrated and maintained at site. The equipment shall be used in a manner, which ensures that equipment uncertainty is known and is consistent with the required capability. 8.3 Site surveying and related equipment will be checked and kept within calibration to the Tolerances as recommended by the manufacturer of the equipment and accepted Engineering/ construction practice. 8.4 Re-calibration and checking must take place not only as scheduled but also at any time when there is any doubt about the integrity and accuracy of the equipment during its use on the site 8.5 When an error in an instrument is evident, the Surveyor may: Adjust the instrument on site in accordance with the instructions provided by the instrument manufacturer (only if the Surveyor/Engineer is competent, having adequate experience to take such action) or request the Project Manager to send the instrument to the local agent for recalibration.
