This service includes title and
land surveys for the commercial and residential
industries. Data is primarily gathered using
Total Stations with data collecting ability and Global
Positioning Real Time Surveying.
- GPS surveying with real time
coordinates at site which provides better accuracy
- Wide range of experience in
Texas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico
Capabilities for surveying
include the following.
a lender, title company or owner will require that a
survey be performed meeting the ALTA / ACSM Minimum
Standard Detail Requirements for a land title survey.

encroachments across property lines or improvements
into identified easements, disclosed exceptions in
accordance with the Title Commitment, all major
improvements as well as any items required by Table A
of the ALTA Survey.
- As-Built - This
usually entails a complete survey during
construction of the site to confirm that the
structures, utilities, and roadways proposed were
built in the proper locations authorized in the
plot plan for local and state boards.
- A survey of actual
physical extent of property ownership, typically
witnessed by monuments or markers (iron pins).

process of establishing and marking the position
and detailed layout of new structures such as
roads or buildings for subsequent construction.
Survey - A survey to determine if a structure
or object is changing shape or moving. The
three-dimensional positions of specific points on
an object are determined, a period of time is
allowed to pass, these positions are then
re-measured and calculated, and a comparison
between the two sets of positions is made.
Environmental Management Agency (FEMA)
and Sediment Control Plan
- A plan that is drawn in conjunction with a
Subdivision Plan that denotes how upcoming
construction activities will effect the movement
of stormwater and sediment across the construction
site and onto abutting properties and how
developers will adjust grading activities to limit
the depositing of more stormwater and sediment
onto abutting properties than was done prior to
- a survey done to collect the positional data
on a foundation that has been poured and is
cured. This is done to ensure that the
foundation was constructed in the location
authorized in the plot plan. When the location of
the finished foundation is checked and approved
the building of the remainder of the structure can

benefits of surveying with GPS include:
(1) a better
accuracy than conventional surveying systems - less
room for error
(2) it requires less
(3) it is not
affected by weather - stays on schedule
(4) the terrain is only a factor in canyons, deep
hollows or at the base of high mountains.
(5) it takes less time that conventional methods
(6) it is capable of providing both horizontal and

environmentally sensitive areas.
- A simple survey that generally
determines land boundaries and building
locations. Mortgage surveys are required by
title companies and lending institutions when they
provide financing to show that there are no
structures encroaching on the property and that
the position of structures is generally within
zoning and building code requirements.

surveying - A
survey that measures the elevation of points on a
particular piece of land, and presents them as
contours on a plot. A survey of any
size area will include the following major benefits:
the determination of the configuration of the surface
of the ground and the location of natural and
artificial objects; and providing contour, elevation
and relief of the subject lands. Our Topographic
Surveys can include any and all of the following:
and locate natural features and improvement,
slope and grade requirements,
possible infrastructure location,
solar and wind access areas, and
