A land survey is an essential tool for any engineering project, whether it be new construction or renovations. The survey provides detailed information about the property, including its boundaries, topography, and any structures or features that may be present. This information is critical for ensuring that the project is designed and built in compliance with […]

What’s a Land Survey, and Do I Need One?

A land survey is a process of defining the boundaries of a parcel of land. It not only outlines the edges, but details the topography, or physical features, of the lot. Land surveys can be conducted following various guidelines, and for various purposes. If you plan to develop a parcel in any way, it’s beneficial […]

Why Civil Surveys are Crucial to Your Success
