Hello! To get a prompt estimate for your survey needs, please go to our Contact form on this site (click Contact, above), and please include the following information in the Your Message section:
1) The exact purpose of the survey: examples include “I’m selling the property, and the buyer or title company wants the old survey updated for new improvements” (=Improvement Location Report); “This property has never been surveyed, or survey is old or inaccurate” (=Boundary Survey), “We want to split this property into separate tracts” (Land Division and/or Lot Split Survey), “We want to split our property and transfer lots to our kids” (=Family Transfer Survey), “We are about to build on our property and need a terrain map for the builder/architect” (=Topographic Survey), “We need to know where our property corners are” or “we are building a fence and need the boundary line staked” (= Find and Flag, Points on Line, etc), “We need Aerial Mapping”, etc etc etc. Survey costs vary greatly depending on what the job scope is- from a few hundred dollars to thousands- so please provide as many details as you can!

The Heights We Will Go To

It just came to my attention that we hadn’t yet posted pictures from when we were surveying on top of Kachina Peak for the new lift at Taos Ski Valley. This is fieldwork that was done in the middle of winter on top of one of New Mexico’s highest peaks! photo 5
