Service Overview

Staking out the foundations for our communities.

Surveying has been a core service of Summit since our firm’s very inception. This long history enhances our unique perspective on surveying and the impact it has on other disciplines, allowing us to work cohesively with the other service departments to deliver comprehensive, full-service projects to our clients. The Summit Geomatics department provides surveying services tailored to private and public clients for a variety of projects in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and Georgia. Our advanced technical capabilities combined with decades of experience positions us to collect, analyze, and interpret survey data efficiently and efficiently so that we can meet even the most aggressive schedule. 

We bring our best to every project to ensure that our clients have the most accurate and up-to-date data to work with. That’s why Summit’s Survey and Geomatics team utilizes state-of-the-art equipment that allows us to collect the most accurate information and high-definition surveys. We also provide survey verification services utilizing the latest technology, so that we can verify contractor-performed construction staking is thorough and accurate.

Our services include wet utilities, drainage structures, pipe culverts, culvert and wall structures, bridges, and sign S-dimensions. We also verify roadway staking including slope stakes, fine grades, blue tops, and curb and gutter. We take pride in knowing that the validating information we provide goes on to become the foundation for projects that improve our communities.
