With a skilled surveying group in-house, we’re able to provide our clients with seamless project execution. Working directly with our engineering team, they help identify challenges relating to design in advance. Our unified approach helps us reduce design conflicts and issues during construction. Over the years, we have performed:

  • Topographic surveys
  • Right-of-way surveys
  • Construction staking
  • Property descriptions for easements and rights-of-way
  • Property boundary surveys
  • Environmental documentation
  • Hydrographic surveys

Working with Affinis is great. They are responsive and appreciate the time-sensitive nature of our projects. Looking forward to more projects in the future.
