Commercial Surveys: ALTA

ALTA Surveys

Our ALTA surveys provide the data the title company and financial institution require to ensure you receive the title insurance you need. We follow the standards set forth by the American Land Title Association (ALTA), as well as additional requirements specified by you and/or the lender. Our team will review the title commitment to accurately demonstrate easements, both benefiting and encumbering the property. We also carefully locate all improvements on the property and prepare a concise, detailed drawing that is color coded and easy to review. Our team will expose any encroachments or issues that could pose a risk to your investment.

Architectural Surveys

Our topographic surveys support proper planning and design. We carefully measure points and represent the surface features of your site such as structures, improvements, trees, streets, utilities and contours. This topographic map is typically utilized throughout the entire project lifecycle, from design to permitting and on through construction.

TOPO / SDOT Surveys

These surveys, typically associated with commercial projects, provide highly detailed topographic maps with a heavy emphasis on street and utility data as well as on all other on- and off-site improvements. Attention to detail is critical on these project types, and you can trust our team to get it right the first time.

Construction Staking Surveys

We expertly stake out reference points and markers that will guide the construction of new structures such as buildings or roads. Not every construction staking project is the same; some require only a basic foundation location while others require regular monitoring to ensure the integrity of the surrounding structures or adherence to municipal regulations.

FEMA Surveys

We will prepare and certify your elevation certificate as required by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Only a licensed land surveyor can provide the certificate, which includes elevation data that FEMA can use to accurately assess flood risks to structures within flood hazard zones. Further, many insurance and financial institutions require a certificate before renewing policies or providing financing for structures located within flood hazard zones. Insurance policy holders can also use an elevation certificate to reduce the cost of flood insurance or understand the need for additional coverage.
