Surveying is critical to ensuring your projects meet legal obligations, most importantly before the purchase of acreage or development. By keeping up with the latest state-of-the-art surveying equipment, we are able to obtain field data in the shortest practical time. Our surveyors locate utilities, buildings, fences, right-of-ways, encroachments, and other evidence of possession. They also advise you if there is a defect in your property description, mark and record your property corners for ease of reference, assist in planning and sub-dividing your property, and have the ability to write legal descriptions when land is to be divided. Our 45 plus years of surveying expertise ensures your next project is done right from the beginning.

Types of Surveying


Topographic: Determines the configuration of the surface of the ground and the location of natural man-made objects.

Property Boundary: Establishes record title lines and corners of the property and obtains data for preparing maps or plats indicating these lines or corners.

Flood Elevation Certificate: Determines if a structure is within a FEMA designated flood zone area.

Construction Staking: The process of interpreting construction plans and marking the location of proposed new structures such as roads or buildings.

Retracement Surveys: Surveys made to verify the direction and length of lines and identify the markers of an established prior survey.

ALTA/ACSM Land Title Survey: Most commonly performed on commercial property, this is the most comprehensive type of survey and location improvement. It covers all the aspects of a boundary survey and identifies any additional evidence of possession or use which could be adverse to the interests of the purchaser.
