Volume Analysis

Land surveying is the art and science of re-establishing boundaries based on historic documents and evidence as well as associated services such as the mapping of surfaces, visible water courses and related data accumulation, land division, construction support and volume analysis. Our design professionals rely upon accuracy and thoroughness of information gathered and compiled by our experienced surveyors using state of the art data collection equipment to develop sound engineering solutions. The survey team establishes the informational groundwork for each project.

Before the commencement of a land surveying task, our team will confer with the project manager, ensuring that the objectives and goals described under the scope of work are clearly understood. Support staff correlates available site information from internal and external sources. Record data is collected and organized such as deeds, plans, notes, photos, and related documents to establish points of origin. This information provides the starting point for field crews to perform on-site measurement and data accumulation of the land or structures.



Well defined procedures resonate throughout the design and construction phases. Land surveying field crews often provide comprehensive detail by documenting protected environmental resources (delineated by environmental project consultants), vegetation, geographical formations, buildings, visible utilities, boundaries, topographical relief, and constructed surfaces. Along with the digital collection of this data through 2D and GIS mapping services, written notes and photographic images, land surveying field crews provide multiple forms of record-keeping and backup of on-site conditions. In the end, many forms of information comprise the ingredients to map information in 2D as a comprehensive starting point for design.
