Topographical Surveys

Topographical Surveys utilize record benchmark or GPS survey methods to reference vertical datum to be used (NAVD 88), Field survey measurements and observations will be performed to compile, process and review collected research and field data. Survey analysis and calculations will be used to prepare mapping.

Architectural Surveys

Architectural Surveys begin with compiling research, including recorded deeds and maps. To reference vertical datum, record benchmark or GPS survey methods will be used (NAVD 88). Field survey measurements and observations will be compiled, processed, and reviewed. Mapping will be prepared utilizing the collected research and field data after performing survey analysis and calculations.

Building Surveys

Building Surveys begin with the gathering of research, field survey measurements and observations. The collected data will be compiled and reviewed to prepare mapping, which will include: Tax Lot Designations, the address of the property, bearings, distances, and area of property boundaries, locations and dimensions of buildings, locations and dimensions of accessory structures such as decks, swimming pools, sheds, and driveways.

Record or As-built Surveys

An As-built survey builds upon the base map of a project and includes research at local agencies, ground-level topography data, and the documentation of visible site improvements. The new map can be updated to show the current conditions of the site.
