Boundary Surveys

A boundary survey is made to establish or re-establish the bounding lines and corners of a parcel using its legal description.  A boundary survey typically involves the setting or restoration and marking of monuments at the corners of the parcel and can be completed whenever land divisions are generated.  

Topographic Surveys

A topographic survey depicts the topography or the “lay of the land” of a specific parcel or project area.  Elevations, natural features, and desired improvements are measured as part of the survey process.  The information is plotted on a scaled drawing with interpolated contours to give a clear representation of the surface features.

A boundary survey with topographic data collection is the first step in determining site feasibility and lays the foundation for site design development by an engineer or architect.  

Elevation Certificate:

An Elevation Certificate is an official form of the National Flood Insurance Program (FEMA Form 086-0-33) created to compare a structures elevation data (determined by field measurement) to the Base Flood Elevation data for insurance rating purposes.   An Elevation Certificate is only useful if you are required to/or plan on purchasing flood insurance.  

Online-LOMA: 

An Online-LOMA is an application process used to submit elevation data to FEMA on a structure or a parcel of land that has not been elevated by the placement of fill and is not expected to be inundated by the 1- percent-annual-chance flood (The Base Flood or BFE). The typical outcome of the LOMA process is a Removal Certification by FEMA.  This application typically takes 30 to 60 days to be processed once submitted to FEMA. 

eLOMA: 

An eLOMA is an expedited option for the LOMA application. The submitting surveyor fills out all the documents and forms that FEMA would normally do as part of the Online-LOMA. This process takes between 30 & 90 days.

The eLOMA is only available in areas with FEMA established floodplain BFE (Base Flood Elevations).

Construction Staking

Construction staking is seen by many to be a simple step at the beginning of a project; however, it can have very dire ramifications for the rest of the project if not completed correctly.  It is money and time well spent to make sure that a qualified individual with the proper surveying knowledge and experience is conducting your construction staking survey.
