LAND SURVEYING, CIVIL ENGINEERING, CONSTRUCTION ENGINEERING, AND SOIL SCIENTISTS

SERVICES

Boundary Surveys

Boundary surveys are all conducted in accordance with state statute, including preparation of a drawing and report for our clients' files and for recordation when necessary. Where possible, all corners will be marked with a permanent monument (either found or placed), with wooden stakes placed nearby to help in their location. Additional stakes can be placed along the boundaries when requested.

Classified Forest and Wildlife Applications

Forest and wildlife classifications generally do not require fieldwork, but are prepared through use of existing aerial photographs as specified by the State of Indiana. This program is designed to encourage the protection and preservation of our natural resources. There is also a significant tax incentive for the property owner.

Flood Elevation Certificates

Properties adjoining waterways sometimes may need flood elevation certificates to determine whether or not flood insurance is needed.

Wetland Delineation and Mitigations

Wetlands may need to be dealt with in the development process. Mitigation or protection may be necessary for these wetlands. We can help you with the appropriate government paperwork for this project. 

Small Hydrographic Surveys

Small hydrographic surveys are used to determine depths of bodies of water. The property is surveyed before and after the construction  of the body of water to determine project quantities. 

Rezonings and Board of Zoning Appeals

When a developer selects a piece of property or a tract of land it may not be zoned correctly for the use they have in mind. We can handle the 'due diligence' to determine if rezoning is a possibility and follow that up with the paperwork and meeting attendance required to get the property ready for the developer's use. We also can help with applications to the Board of Zoning Appeals for variances required when a building or tract of land does not meet the requirements of the Zoning Ordinance.

ALTA - NSPS Land Title Surveys

An ALTA survey is generally prepared in conjunction with a title insurance policy during a commercial or industrial property transaction and must meet very detailed standards set forth by the American Land Title Association and the National Society of Professional Surveyors.

Final Site, Drainage, and Landscaping Plans

In the course of development of commercial property, there will be a need to create a final site, drainage, and landscaping plans to submit to local government agencies for their approval.

Wetland Reserve Easements

If your property is determined to have a wetland area, you may desire to create a Federally protected wetland reserve. We prepare the associated paperwork, survey work, and marking of the preservation area. 

Soil Borings for new Septic Designs

When municipal utilities are not available, it may become necessary to have a septic system. Soil borings are necessary and required by county and state health departments to determine whether a site is suitable for septic systems. Soil borings are also needed for a replacement of a failed system. 

Letter of Map Amendments

In cases where a home buyer or homeowner has been told by their lender that they must purchase flood insurance, we can be of assistance. Exact elevations are taken of the property in question, paperwork is completed and filed with FEMA. A letter of map amendment is issued by FEMA indicating that the house does not require flood insurance. 

Surveyor Location Report

A surveyor location report is typically done for a lending institution to ensure the parcel has no significant encroachment issues. The house, driveway, and out-buildings are typically located on a drawing. Boundaries are not physically established and the results are not to be used for establishing boundaries or fences.

Accident Surveys and Expert Witness

A surveyor can aid in the preparation of a lawsuit. Your attorney may desire to have visual aids to reenact the accident on a scale model or drawing. We create the drawing or model and testify to measurements necessary to present or defend your case.

Erosion Control Plans (Rule 5)

State law requires erosion control plans on all site developments greater than one acre in size. We prepare the appropriate plans to meed local and state requirements. 

Commercial and Residential Septic Designs

County and state health departments have specific design standards for commercial and residential septic systems. We provide the services needed to design these systems.

FAQ:

What is a land surveyor and what do we do?


The profession of land surveying is a combination of art and science. It involves technical expertise, judgment, creativity, strategy and problem solving. The job of a surveyor involves being part historian, archaeologist, cartographer, and an expert at measuring and evaluating measurements.




Why would I need a survey?


Common reasons why surveys are performed are to determine property lines or physical features in relation to property lines, such as fences, retaining walls or buildings. Other reasons include topographic mapping in preparation for remodeling or design, determining lot square footage, slope, subdividing a parcel, condominium conversion, surveys for the sale or refinance of commercial or residential property.




How much will it cost?


The cost of a survey depends on many factors, including the type of survey, complexity of the legal description, size of the parcel, terrain, availability of records, prior surveys etc. Call us today for a free estimate!




When should a property be surveyed?


- When property is divided into parcels for sale or development. - When property is to be sold, purchased or mortgaged.
- When property improvements are planned or to be developed
- When government regulations require a survey and map of your property.
- When the location of property boundaries or corners is uncertain.
- When property trespass or encroachment is evidenced or suspected.




What information will the surveyor need for my property survey?


A copy of property deeds, abstract of title or title insurance commitment, maps, and other available information relating to the property. If you don't have any of the above information, contact us and we can assist you in obtaining the correct information. If necessary, meet the land surveyor at the survey site for inspection or consultation.
