SURVEYING is a critical first step in a project’s life. In our surveying practice, we value accuracy and timeliness. We ensure that our survey crews and technicians keep pace with ever changing technology, and we provide them with the most advanced equipment. That’s why we have invested in technologies such as Global Positioning System (GPS) equipment, which uses satellites to produce the fastest and most accurate results available today. We have made use of the satellite imagery.
All types of surveying services are provided for highways, bridges, railways, rivers and other water bodies, airports, harbors, recreation sites, industrial site, commercial sites, residential sites, mines and pipelines.
High-tech equipment and continuing education help us retain good people and provide the level of service and accuracy our clients expect.

GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEM (GPS) SURVEYING
When you need accuracy quickly – GPS surveying provides it. GPS technology establishes the relative position of survey control points to centimeter-level accuracy within minutes. We call it cost-effective technology. Both kinematic and static GPS are important elements of our field-to-finish mapping services.
We have provided GPS surveying services since 1987, and our surveyors are seasoned professionals. They research data; collect precise field measurements; and perform intense network design, analysis, and least squares adjustments.
