Subdivisions are a specific type of legal boundary survey with special legislative powers to create and modify property lines. Subdivisions are most commonly used to divide land into smaller lots. Subdivisions can also be used to consolidate two or more parcels into one larger piece, or to change the location of a property line between two neighbors. We help clients with subdivisions of all sizes, from single lot to multi-phased developments. Below are a few of the products and services we offer:

Topographic Surveys

Topographic surveys measure and depict physical features on and below the ground in support of a wide variety of applications. Commonly, topographic surveys are conducted prior to engineering design for municipal or infrastructure projects. We work closely with our clients to understand which features they need surveyed to support their project, how to collect the data safely and efficiently, and how to derive and present the data in an effective manner.
