Survey or land surveying is the method and science of correctly defining the three-dimensional position of points and the distances and angles between them. These points are usually on the surface of the Earth, and they are used to establish land maps and boundaries for ownership or governmental purposes.

Hodge Associates provides a total line of surveying services using the latest GPS equipment for all phases of design and construction by Professional Licensed Surveyors and experienced technicians. We combine on site documentation of the existing conditions as well as research of historical documents to provide a complete survey. We can offer staking for the construction of the project, including layout of building corners and other site features such as curb lines & utilities and staking of slopes for site grading. After construction is finished, as an additional service, we can produce as-built or record drawings, required by some jurisdictions. These plans depict the locations of constructed elements and are used to insure that the design plans were followed and that the constructed project will perform as designed.
