With any new home construction project, ensuring everything is done right from the start is essential. Hiring a land surveyor – a licensed professional specializing in measuring and mapping land – is a critical first step. The Cuyahoga Land Bank works with Riverstone Company (riverstonesurvey.com) for many of its new home construction projects. Located in downtown Cleveland, Riverstone offers a full range of civil engineering, land surveying, planning and development services throughout Ohio and Florida.
“The Land Bank builds new homes on vacant land in Cuyahoga County, and the professionals at Riverstone offer valuable information about the property, boundaries, topography, and any existing easements or encroachments,” says Jennifer Vazquez-Norman, Programs Operations Manager for the Land Bank. A land survey can safeguard against property disputes, ensure compliance with building codes, and identify any potential hazards to help you design and build on infill lots, avoiding costly delays and problems down the road. “I have worked with Riverstone’s Pete Gauriloff on many of our new construction projects, and he is always extremely insightful and a tremendous help as we work through the pre-development process. We often count on his expert advice before we begin a new project.”
“Riverstone Company has a very experienced staff that work closely with different municipalities to limit the number of “surprises” that can come up when building a new home,” says Gauriloff, a surveyor and project manager at Riverstone. “We are very grateful for the partnership with the Land Bank and the opportunity to help provide amazing new homes to neighborhoods all over Cuyahoga County. “
