Surveying Project
A Broad Range of Successful Projects

Since 1977 we have completed thousands of professional surveys, constituting a broad range of projects in scope and size.

Extensive experience with Legal and Development Surveys for private landowners, commercial/industrial developments, mining resources, roadways and First Nations bands has made us the surveying company of choice in Northern Ontario.

A brief description of survey types and major completed projects are listed below.

Legal and Development Surveys

These surveys are carried under the Land Titles, Surveys, Registry and Surveyors Acts for the determination of property boundaries, both existing and newly created and the preparation of plans to be registered in the Land Registry Office based on research, field surveys and cadastral law.

These types of surveys are executed for small private landowners, commercial or industrial developments, and government agencies. These can include applications for the definition of existing lot boundaries, development of new lots, subdivisions, land acquisition and zoning by-law amendment, topographic, lot grading and drainage survey plans for development planning, construction and architectural designing, site monitoring, construction layout and final as-built site plans and/or commercial Surveyor’s Real Property Reports.

Aside from survey execution, our services can also include, map and plan rendering, research of old records, plans, air photos and title searches and/or consultation and representation where clients require a professional liaison when engaging local, municipal, provincial and federal Planning Committees.

In the Construction industry, we have been involved in the layout of many diverse and complex projects.

Services we have delivered include topographical surveys for pre-engineering & design, review of architectural drawings to ensure that the building mathematically fits on the lot and meets zoning requirements.

Our field survey experience includes layout of gridlines, layout of column centerlines and anchor bolts, monitoring of adjacent structures, and setting grades. Once the building is complete, we also carry out surveys for certification of compliance with specifications.

As well we have executed large scale Mapping and Control Survey projects utilizing vertical and horizontal control aerial photography to produce detailed elevation mapping required for various types of projects.
