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.

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.

Discovery Charter School
Summit’s Surveying and Geomatics, Land Development, 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.
