Surveys We Offer

Our services range from large topographic and boundary surveys to subdivision platting. This breadth of services and capabilities allows us to apply the most appropriate tools and cost-effective methods to each project. Our team of surveyors have the experience to provide all of the following services:

An ALTA/NSPS Survey has become the standard for land surveys. The American Land Title Association (ALTA) and National Society of Professional Surveyors (NSPS) created a set of regulations to be followed when conducting a land survey. At Holland Engineering, many of our surveyors are members of NSPS and are very familiar with the ALTA/NSPS survey guidelines.

Boundary surveys are conducted to determine a formal border for a piece of property. Our licensed Professional Surveyors and their technicians can help determine a specific boundary which can be required for some construction projects.

Topographic surveys gather data from a parcel of land including natural and man-made characteristics, relative elevation and depth, and provide necessary information needed for construction and development.

Native to the West Michigan area, we are very familiar with the importance that the Great Lakes and waterways have on our lives. Hydrographic surveying is primarily done along the shore and in harbors to map features that may impact marine activities, construction and navigation.

A control survey is used to establish reference points that can be used throughout the construction process. The control points typically include characteristics on site, including buildings, roads, utilities.

Land divisions are used to divide a parcel of land into two or more separate parcels. Our Local Survey Group has experience consulting with local governments which require different requirements in order to complete a land division.

Also known as ‘Construction Staking,’ includes marking refernce points to be used to guide construction crews when building new structures or roads. This is a crucial step in all construction projects, as it helps develop the physical layout of utilities like electrical lines, gas mains, wastewater systems, and more.

Need to run a new electrical line to your property, but it would need to cross your neighbor’s property? An easement allows you to access another’s property without ownership. This is common for utilities and roads needed to gain access to various areas. 

Used by Insurance Companies, elevation certificates can help determine your flood insurance premiums and are usually required if you are in an area that is at high-risk for flooding.

Is your property in a Special Flood Hazard Area, but your elevation is naturally higher than the base flood elevation? A LOMA can be issued to your insurer stating that your property is not at such a high-risk.

Where We Survey

Our team includes a dedicated group of licensed Professional Surveyors, each equipped with diverse state licenses that attest to their expertise. One member within our Survey Group is a Certified Federal Surveyor (CFedS), a distinction that extends our services to projects situated on federal land throughout the entirety of the United States.
