These types of contracts call for the full array of my land surveying services from the simplest to the most sophisticated projects on an as-needed basis. Terms of operations are set at time of contract negotiations.

Land disputes are settled with the testimony of an expert surveyor. I have been involved as an expert witness for many cases in Colorado.

In the capacity of both surveyor and manager, I have produced geospatial mapping of natural or constructed features and boundaries on, above or below the earth’s surface. Utilize simple field techniques using hand held measuring devices to the most precise Global Positioning Systems equipment.

Civil/Site Development
For both design and build projects, I have participated as the field collector of data, office processing, and drafting of the three dimensional information to support the architect, civil engineer, structural engineer, planner or landscape designer for the completion of Construction Documents.

I have participated in field and office assignments as well as managing of street projects and arterial roadways at the city, county and state level. Collection and management of the field data, definition of road rights-of-way, and preparation of written description for land acquisition.

Site Monitoring
I have served as both surveyor and manager on vertical displacement monitoring projects for structural movement due to loading constraints, slope conditions and expansive soils. I have been responsible for repetitive monitoring of "piezometers" positioned on dams for horizontal and vertical displacement.
