Land Surveying Services


A boundary survey and drawing (plat) which meets the requirements of ALTA (American Land Title Association) and the ACSM (American Congress on Surveying and Mapping) and incorporates review of the Title Search provided. ALTA surveys are typically required for the purchase or sale of commercial property. The final ALTA survey will reflect the minimum standards as outlined in Table A as provided by the client.

As-Built Survey

A survey performed after construction to show the pre-existing and new improvements.

Boundary Survey

This survey reestablishes boundaries of a parcel using its legal description. All property corners are either found or set and are displayed on a drawing (plat) along with all the permanent structures, above-ground utilities and any encroachments.

Commercial Survey

This encompasses surveys performed on properties zoned commercial or industrial.

FEMA Elevation Certificate

An elevation certificate is an official form of the National Flood Insurance Program (FEMA). A survey for a Flood Elevation Certificate provides verification of the elevation data of a structure and the Base Flood Elevation (established on FEMA maps) on a given property relative to the ground level. This information is used in the flood insurance rating process and could lower insurance costs.

Form Survey

The staking of structure or addition to ensure footprint is in correct proposed location and meets Municipality setback requirements.

Line Staking

The property corners are located and stakes are placed along property lines to act as a visual marker when fencing is erected or when landscaping is modified. No drawing (plat) is provided.

Land Title Survey

Determines land boundaries with locations of buildings, above-ground utilities, fences, driveways and possible encroachments and is shown on a drawing (plat).

Site Plan

A Site Plan is a pre-construction drawing (plat) that shows the location of existing improvements, the proposed house or building, driveway and other improvements. It includes a Boundary Survey, Topographical Survey, Tree Location Survey and a Grading Plan according to County requirements.

Topographical Survey

Surveys which measure the elevation points on a particular piece of land and are shown by contour lines and dimensions on a drawing (plat).

Tree Location Survey

A survey pinpointing the location and diameter of trees. This drawing (plat) is then utilized by the Municipality’s Arborist to determine the removal and replacement of trees impacted by the proposed construction.
