Surveying for Energy Projects

Energy projects move quickly and require accurate surveying services to hit deadlines and meet local and federal requirements. Right-of-way surveying and mapping require a thorough and keen understanding of property rights, easements, roadway dedications, and geospatial data. No firm understands these better than Compass Surveying.
