Service Overview

Surveying has been a core service of Summit since its inception, which enhances our unique perspective of the impact surveying has on other disciplines. Our geomatics department provides surveying services tailored to private and public clients for a variety of projects in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and Georgia. The combination of our advanced technical capabilities with decades of experience positions us to collect, analyze, and interpret survey data efficiently to meet even the most aggressive schedule.

Our state-of-the-art equipment combined with our multi-disciplinary approach allows us to collect the most accurate information and high-definition surveys with the latest technology. We even provide survey verification services utilizing the latest technology to verify contractor-performed construction staking.

This includes 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 validating information that becomes the foundation for the projects that improve our communities.
