AS-BUILT SURVEY TYPES

For Residential Projects:  As required by the City’s Subdivision Ordinance, as-built surveys are required for all storm drainage systems that are installed as part of residential or commercial subdivision infrastructure.  Storm drainage system as-built surveys must contain information regarding storm drainage constructed to the extents that correspond ​to the boundary of a recorded Subdivision Plat map.  Storm drainage as-builts are to be sealed and signed by a Registered Land Surveyor. 

With storm drainage as-builts associated with new street construction in subdivisions, the limits of the as-built survey must correspond to the limits of a recorded subdivision plat map.  ​​​Be sure to upload a PDF copy of the recorded Subdivision Plat map whose boundary contains the storm drainage being certified, or simply provide a reference to the Map Book and Page Number of the plat at the Register of Deeds.​

For Commercial Projects/Subdivisions with SCMs: The City's Post-Construction Ordinance​requires as-built surveys.  These As-built certifications and surveys are required for stormwater control measures (SCMs, a.k.a. BMPs) in subdivisions and commercial development sites or residential subdivisions.  SCM as-builts need to be signed and sealed by both a Registered Land Surveyor and a Professional Engineer and must include a standard PE certification statement (see checklists below).


PROCESS & REQUIREMENTS


HOW TO SUBMIT AN AS-BUILT FOR REVIEW

As-builts are to be submitted electronically in PDF format for City Engineering review via Accela Citizen Access​.  Click the link below to go to the Accela online portal, log-in with username and password, and then create a new application for an as-built review:​


PROCESS

The submitted information will be logged in for a detailed review by an Engineering reviewer. The review progress can be tracked in Accela Citizen Access. 1st submittal As-built reviews are completed within 15 business days. If the as-built cannot be approved, any revisions that are required will be relayed to the applicant as redline comments on the As-built survey plan. Subsequent submittals also have a 15 business day turn-around time. Final approvals will be noted in Accela Citizen Access and an e-mail will be sent to the applicant to alert them of approval.  Once all as-builts have been approved the assigned Site Inspector will then be notified that a project can progress toward CO Hold Release for Commercial projects, and Bond Release and/or final Street Acceptance process for a Subdivision Street.

REVIEW FEES

There is a review fee required for Asbuilt Review for projects over 2 Years from Approval Date. See Fee Schedule.

EXPEDITED AS-BUILT OPTION AVAILABLE

An expedited as-built review is available for those projects that need review and approval of as-builts faster than the typical 15-business-day review.  Expedited option provides a 3-day review timeframe, after which either comments or an approval will be provided.  The "As-built Expeditedrecord type is an available choice when creating a new application on Accela.  The Expedited Review fee is ​added for this option as well as any other applicable user fees.  (see the current Fee Schedule for amount)

AS-BUILT CHECKLISTS

The Engineering team has prepared multiple checklists to aid in the preparation & review of as-built surveys.  These are mainly a staff review tool, but it is encouraged that surveyors/engineers use the checklists as a guide to verify all required information is shown prior to submittal:

Storm Drainage
Detention (Surface and Underground)
Extended Dry Detention
Bioretention
Sand Filter
Wet Pond
Wetland
Permeable Pavement
