1. 1
    Instrument Survey

    We only use the most technologically advanced surveying tripods, theodolites, digital levels, and other instrumentation available.

  2. 2
    Boundary Survey

    Boundary surveys are especially useful for property owners who want to define clearly the existing limits of a piece of real estate. These documents can help identify any potential encroachments from one property to another prior to the construction of new fences, paving expansions, or building additions. Maier Land Surveying recovers the boundary information from extensive courthouse documentation before recreating this property outline in a physical form that is more easily understandable.

  3. 3
    Topographic Survey

    These types of land surveys document all existing structures and natural features that lie above ground. Topographic Surveys usually take place during the pre-development phase of a new construction project. They can help identify the surface drainage patterns of the property, assist in the determination of specific design improvements, and aid in defining precise locations of future structures.

  4. 4
    Elevation Certifications

    The official flood maps of New York and every other region in the United States are constantly being revised and updated. An Elevation Certificate is useful in verifying and documenting the newly defined flood elevations for a piece of property. These certificates are useful for the purchasing of professional flood insurance with the proper coverage requirements.

  5. 5
    As-built Surveys

    Once a new construction project is complete, an As-built Survey is usually the next step. Even though careful planning is taken by professional architects and engineers to create highly detailed blueprints well before construction begins, unforeseen challenges can easily lead to last-minute changes. As-built surveys help to determine if these unexpected improvements are in compliance with the specifications of the related legal authorities necessary to obtain a Certificate of Occupancy. They also provide a multitude of other uses to the property owner once the building becomes operational.

  6. 6
    Easement Preparation

    These documents are useful for property owners who plan to grant access to neighbors, utility companies, or other government agencies for the expressed purposes of installing, maintaining, or repairing utility lines. Because these utilities are deep underground, the workmen from these utility companies need these easement plats or right-of-way plats to guide them to the related components of the buried utility lines.

  7. 7
    Subdivision of Land

    These documents are useful when dividing large chunks of real estate into smaller, easier-to-sell pieces. And like a traditional subdivision or suburban neighborhood, these types of professional surveys often include proposed roadways, drainage requirements, and individual setback lines and easements from one plat of land to the next. The legal descriptions for each plat of land are also clearly defined, complete with geographical coordinates and lengths of individual boundaries.

  8. 8
    Aerial Mapping & Photo Control

    Professional aerial mapping is a very effective way for getting large-scale development projects into their initial stages of design. Maier Land Surveying will measure identifiable control points or perhaps painted targets that are easily photographed from an aerial viewpoint. The aerial images are then broken down into an easy-to-understand ground coordinate system that is useful during the concept planning stages.

  9. 9
    ALTA/ACSM Survey

    Title companies and professional lenders often require these types of surveys before issuing the property title or title insurance. While Alta Surveys contain much of the same information found on other types of land surveys, they are infinitely more complex. Maier Land Surveying provides the valuable expertise to complete these highly detailed documents quickly and accurately.
