Many details go into designing a sign. When it comes to installation or maintenance of outdoor building signage, signs must meet legal requirements and local zoning. A sign site analysis report is a necessary step in designing and installing an outdoor sign so that local regulatory agencies can approve the sign placement.

Brooklyn Signs has provided survey services for retail stores, restaurants, offices, developers, and more. With an expert team of both surveyors and designers, we can create a detailed report for your project, as well as work with you to design and fabricate your signs.

About Our Survey Services

A site sign survey is needed for new sign installation, replacement of existing signage, or sign maintenance. To conduct a survey, we examine the entire property where the sign is intended to be installed. We inventory current signage, take measurements of buildings and signs, and photograph the property. This helps to determine:
  • Sign Dimensions
  • Graphic Positioning
  • Lighting
  • ADA Compliancy
  • Installation Requirements
  • Building Code Compliance

A site survey is an important, and often required, step between design, fabrication, and installation. The resulting report from a sign survey can be submitted to municipalities and regulators for approval. A comprehensive sign survey report includes:

  • A Property Diagram Showing New And Existing Signage
  • Elevation Renderings
  • Photos Of The Existing Structures And Signs
  • Color Schemes
  • Graphic Of The Proposed Sign

We are able to complete in depth site surveys. For accurate measurements and photos, we use a cherry picker to reach tall spaces. We can also determine electrical needs for lit signs and plans for removal of old signs, and of course if you need additional help with sign installation, we are available as well.

Frequently Asked Questions and Resources

What is a sign site survey?

Sign Site survey is basically a survey that is done by our team members before the installation of the sign. This survey is done to check the property the sign is going to be placed on, the dimension that it will have, the lighting that it will require, and if it needs to get ADA approved or not.

Why do you need this survey?

The site survey is a very important step in making the sign for you as the survey provides us information about the dimensions, the area or any other specific detail that we need to keep in mind for designing your sign. The survey is also important as after the survey is taken sometimes it is submitted to municipalities and regulators for the approvals.

Do you do a survey before placing orders?

We survey the place after you have placed the order so we can check out your place and make a report of the things that we need to keep in mind. Take photographs of the place so that we can keep them with us so that we don't make any mistake with your sign.

What things do you check for your survey?

When we survey your place we check for the Sign Dimensions, Graphic Positioning, Lighting, ADA Compliance, Installation Requirements, Building Code Compliance etc.

Do I need to be present at the time of survey?

If you want you can be there at the time of survey so that you can be satisfied with the measurements that we are taking and if you want to suggest any change in the position of the sign or any other thing. But we have been installing the signs for a long time now so we can also work and show the report to you after we are done.

How long does it take to survey the site and install my sign?

It doesn’t take a lot of time to take the survey of the place. If we have the place to ourselves we can do the survey in a day or two and check for any city code too. After your sign has been manufactured we can install the sign in 2 or 3 days or more. The installation of the sign depends on the type of sign that you have chosen and the area it needs to be placed in.
