The leadership of the Carlile • Macy survey team is provided by two professional land surveyors, licensed in the State of California, both of whom are principals in the firm. Their collective surveying backgrounds cover the full range of surveying services. Survey services include design, boundary, topographic and right-of-way surveys as well as construction staking.
- Design Surveying: We provide base mapping for use in design by our own staff as well as other engineering firms. We utilize our own state of the art Leica System 500 Global Positioning Receivers, TOPCON Automatic Tracking Robotic Total Station, and several conventional TOPCON 300 SERIES Total Stations.
- Boundary Surveying: Our principal land surveyor oversees the preparation of record of surveys, right-of-way surveys, ALTA surveys, parcel maps, final maps, lot line adjustments, legal descriptions, public lands survey retracements, and control surveys.
- Topographic Surveys: Utilizing our state-of-the-art equipment, we provide topographic mapping ranging from project site plans to large-scale countywide projects. We provide photogrametric services in association with several northern California aerial mapping firms.
- Right-of-Way Surveys: Carlile • Macy has extensive experience in performing surveys for improvement project corridors such as roads, highways, pipelines and utilities. These surveys include primary control, mapping control, mapping utilities, locating existing rights-of-way and easements, and, where necessary, preparing legal descriptions and plats for property acquisition.
- Construction Staking: Once construction projects are ready to be built, our surveyors stake the property and control for improvements to facilitate actual construction. Our survey technicians provide office support for our survey field crews by calculating coordinates for project staking items and transferring the information from the desktop computer directly into handheld survey field calculators. Our surveyors help turn two-dimensional linework on improvement-plan drawings into an exciting, three-dimensional reality at the project site.
