Land Surveying

The team combines best practices of land surveying, drone operations, and the latest CAD software to produce premium survey products in a time frame that meets our client’s needs.

Today’s high land costs demand highly accurate, detailed surveys and the most comprehensive procedures from the field to the office to ensure that our client’s projects are problem-free and yield a maximum return on investment.

Our clients include large and small contractors, real estate lawyers, lenders, land title companies, municipalities, property owners, developers and corporations. Still, our strength is in providing in-house services to Landform’s three client-focused design studios. This efficient continuity of service ensures the survey team is integrated into the design process. This work culture provides seamless documentation, not rework, from which a design solution can emerge.

Our clients appreciate the quality and efficiency of our survey service and its contribution to all Landform projects. We provide complete land survey services directly for clients or in conjunction with our Residential, Retail & Commercial or Planning & Urban Design Studios.
