Surveying

surveying

When a survey is the next step for your project, you need a professional land surveyor who understands the features of the land and water on your site, as well as construction timelines and the questions to ask to get you to your end goal.

 

Are you constructing a 100-lot subdivision or a chemical plant? We know how to guide you through your survey options, from topographic and boundary to relocation and control surveys. Will municipal regulations or zone ordinances affect your project? Our professional land surveyors can help you understand these variables. Our time spent surveying a variety of projects in locations across the Southeast means lessons learned and knowledge to share.

 

Another thing we understand is when to use traditional surveying techniques or new technology. Our crews are experienced in tried and true survey methods. Our GPS / Total Stations gather ground shots and collect XYZ data for all relevant, above-ground features. Our toolbox also includes a fleet of purpose-built drones with Lidar and photogrammetry options. Our drones collect data and meet the same industry standards as traditional tools, but in greater quantity and efficiency.

 

Does your site include a pond or other water source? We can tackle that too with traditional surveying equipment accessed with a 23-foot vessel suitable for near-shore conditions. If your water source is difficult to access or shallow, our unmanned survey vessel (USV) is the way to go. It’s small in size but delivers big on data while decreasing field time and adding safety precautions.

 

Regardless of your project type, we bring attentiveness and a reputation for safety to your site.

 

In the end, our professional land surveyors deliver the survey information you need to take your project from an idea to plans-in-hand.
