Land Surveying

Hutchison & Associates’ professional surveyors perform complete surveying services using the latest technology available. Playing an integral role in land development, our surveyors research, collect and analyze data, locate boundary corners, take accurate measurements of buildings and other improvements, and use that information to generate survey maps, show monumentation, and identify property ownership.

Purpose of a Land Survey

Land surveys are performed for a variety of reasons. They determine boundaries of properties as well as easements, encroachments, ownership, and are useful in avoiding or solving boundary disputes. These measurements are necessary to guide the development of land and to ensure that developers and land owners have satisfied building code requirements and regulations.

Types of Surveys

Hutchison & Associates’ professional licensed surveyor services include the following types of surveys and more.

An American Land Title Association (ALTA) survey is frequently used to satisfy property title and mortgage lender requirements. It will identify the property lines, note location of any additions to the property, locate easements, identify utilities, identify encroachments, and note any conditions or geographic features on the property.

Boundary Surveys determine the property lines and corners of tracts of land and parcels.

Construction Surveys, also considered construction staking, provide measurements for reference points that affect construction on a parcel of land such as elevation, horizontal and vertical positions, and dimensions.

Subdivision Surveys, or platting, are used to divide one parcel of land into two or more parcels. These surveys are used for legal titles for each parcel.

Topographic Surveys determine the elevation points of a land parcel showing the contour lines of the natural and man-made features of the property.

As-Built Surveys show any and all improvements made on a property at any given time.

Collecting Survey Data

Taking a topographic survey from the sky for large projects can be acquired by UAS (Unmanned Aircraft Systems) under an FAA Certified Remote Pilot. This technology shortens onsite visits and streamlines engineering design with high detail and efficiently. Other services provided are project photos and videos, state plane ortho-imagery, construction tracking, and volumetric mapping and calculations.
