The accurate measurement of levels for screeds and substrate levels play a major role in controlling the costs and ensuring high quality standards for the screed. Level survey measurements are generally required for:
- Assessing the level of concrete substrates before commencing screed installation
- Assessing the departure from datum of screed after installation
- Measuring the average level of the installed screed
Right from determining the minimum /maximum depth requirements of screed and ensuring the compliance of screed levels with initial specifications to settling disputes regarding deviation against contract, accurate level surveying is a crucial aspect in screeding projects.
When an inaccurate assessment of level of the concrete substrate could lead to a wrong estimation of screed depth which in turn could translate into- higher concrete, higher costs and longer drying period in case the assessed level is lower than the actual measurement; a higher assessed level than the actual level could lead to judgements of lower screed depth, which can drastically affect the quality and integrity of the screed.
