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.

Discovery Charter School
Our Land Development, Surveying and Geomatics, and Construction Materials Testing departments all worked together to provide site design, permitting, and other vital services for the development and construction of the Discovery Charter School in Durham County, NC.
The facility consists of four 10,500 square foot classroom buildings, and one 12,000 square-foot gymnasium, all connected by a large network of sidewalks. This 49-acre site also includes a soccer field, 78 parking spaces, and areas for bicycle storage. There was no public water or sewer serving the area, so there was also a six-acre septic system installed on the property.
How We Use a 3D Laser Scanner to Benefit Our Clients
By using the Leica P-40 Terrestrial Laser Scanner on a project, our team is able to scan an entire project area or building and obtain accurate measurements.
