Boundary / Title / ALTA Surveys
A boundary survey is needed for most land sales transactions. Our surveys will meet strict TSPS or ALTA requirements or specific requirements if needed. Our surveys will be very detailed and easy to read and understand. We take great pride in the appearance of our final product.
We perform topographic surveys for the design and development of many types of projects. This type of survey will show the vertical layout of the land including spot elevations and contour lines. Underground utilities are usually researched and shown on the survey. Computer files can be sent to others on the design team in order to help get quicker turnarounds and better efficiency. Many of our clients are other professional engineers. They recognize the value of our experience and utilize our services for their design work.
Construction staking is an important part of the project to help make sure everything is built per plans. We will work with the contractor to stake out any needed control points or facilities including building corners, manholes, inlets, curbs, utilities, etc.
Subdivision Layout and Platting
Undeveloped tracts of land will likely need to be platted for development. This means surveying the boundaries of the property, dividing it up into lots, reserves and roads, and recording the plat in the county records. Most counties and cities have their own specific requirements to meet. We have dealt with most of the surrounding counties and cities in the Houston area and other parts of Texas. We have a good handle on any kind of platting needs in the area. We will follow the plat from the time it is surveyed on the ground to the time it is recorded at the courthouse.
Oil Field Related Surveying
To fulfill the surveying and related needs of our clients. The company maintains a staff of highly experienced personnel proficient in a complete range of surveying services for the oil and gas industry throughout the Texas and Louisiana Gulf Coast Region. Well location stake outs, pipeline staking and as-builds on land or in Galveston Bay, and all types of plats needed for permitting are our specialty. In keeping with its dedication to high performance standards, the firm places a strong emphasis on furthering the goals of the surveying profession through licensing of key personnel and active participation in professional and technical societies
Elevations certificates are used to determine if a building or structure is above or below the base flood elevation shown on FEMA flood plain maps. This information is usually used to establish flood insurance rates.
We use GPS equipment to help facilitate our surveying practice. GPS has helped in performing larger projects in less time with improved accuracy in some cases.
