Land Surveying Services
(Residential & Commercial)
Plot Plans – Drawings that show proposed house or building footprints situated on a lot, typically based on record data (without requiring a field survey).
Site Plans – Drawings that typically require field surveys to show property boundary & existing conditions. Site plans are prepared per the requirements of the reviewing agency.
House & Building Stakeout – Field stakeout of the proposed building location per the approved plot plan, site plan, etc.
Construction Stakeout – Various construction stakeout services are offered, ranging from small parking lot layout to complete site and utility layout.
Benchmarks – Elevation benchmarks are set per published datum, or by elevations relative to the site as needed for the project.
Foundation Surveys – Location surveys of the as-built foundation location, as required by lenders, local agencies, etc.
Property Surveys (“Lot”,” Boundary” or “Closing” surveys) – Typically, the survey is reestablishment of the property lines described by the record deed, and includes locating or reestablishing corner markers as needed. Some surveys require extensive research and additional fieldwork to reestablish the property lines if the record information is vague, incorrect (or inconsistent), or simply impossible to read.

Topographic / Existing Conditions Surveys – Field surveys that range from contour maps to locations of all existing conditions and features**. (**These can include tree species, sizes and locations if necessary for the project)
Planning & Engineering Surveys – Similar to existing conditions surveys, the scope is defined by the project needs.
As-Built Surveys – Location surveys of new utility installations to post-construction surveys that include all significant improvements.
Wetland Flag Location Surveys – Field location of wetland delineation flags (preliminary & final) for planning and mapping purposes.
Plats / Maps
Subdivision Plats – Plats prepared for major / minor land subdivisions.
Recombination Plats – Plats prepared for joining existing parcels, or recombining into new configurations.
Easement Plats – Plats prepared to create new easements (or to change /modify existing easements).
