The surveyors employ the most efficient blend of traditional and modern technologies to provide their clients with accurate, high-quality products in a timely manner. In addition to their access to key technologies, they are able to perform many surveys, such as municipal, institutional, commercial, industrial, environmental, agricultural and residential surveys. Their services include:

  • 3D Laser Scanning
  • 3d Modeling and BIM

    • 3D modeling is considered the logical extension of 2D CAD into the realm of 3 dimensions
    • 3D modeling add substance and definition to point clouds, with a streamlining of the realistic effect given by 3D scanning
    • BIM allows users to not just view data in 3 dimensional graphics, but interact with information through those very same graphics

  • Accident & Forensic Surveys

  • ALTA/ACSM Land Title Surveys, which are often required by title insurance companies and financial institutions in real estate transactions.

  • As-Built Surveys, which are surveys that are usually performed at the end of a construction project to verify that the work completed met the specifications on the approved plans.

  • Rail to Trail Surveys, which allows clients to renovate an old railway line on their property.

  • Structural Monitoring Surveys, which allows surveyors to monitor the client’s structure to see if it has shifted during construction.
  • Subdivision Mapping, which is used to breakdown property into parcels.
