Survey Services

Conducting surveys of the highest accuracy is one of the fundamental components of our business, and BLN offers a full complement of surveying consulting services for our clients.

The survey team is equipped with the latest technology for both field and office, allowing our staff to work independently and proactively as needed during all phases of a project’s route survey. This results in time and cost savings for our clients. Adding efficiency, our field crews are equipped with GPS receivers and laptops to process their own field data quickly after collection. 

For survey precision, our office staff uses the latest CADD and survey data processing packages to process and adjust field data, create surveys, digital terrain models, prepare location route survey control plats, subdivision plats, and ALTA surveys.

Among the equipment our crews use to ensure your survey are:

  • Trimble S6 and 57 Robotic Total Stations
  • TSC 3 Access Data Collectors
  • Trimble R-10 GPS Receivers
  • Trimble DiNi Digital Level
  • Polaris Side-by-Side
