Boundary Survey

Survey, city street, civil engineering

Our survey professionals help determine the exact points of property lines before the start of any project.

Our standard land boundary survey is a detailed survey that meets the Illinois minimum standard requirements. It establishes or re-establishes the extent of title lines and defines and identifies those lines to uniquely locate each lot, parcel or other specific land area in relation to well-recognized and established points of reference and rights of way.

Gewalt Hamilton Engineers rely on topographic survey to determine the final surface of a site.

A topographic survey shows the horizontal and vertical contours and locations of existing natural or man-made features, whether subsurface or other, and the graphic representation of the results from field data. Topographic surveys for properties are required in the development or redevelopment stages of a project.

Plats of Subdivisions/Easements/Highways

A thorough examination of a plat is made to determine its effect on the land and ensure compliance of all statutory requirements.

We prepare different types of plats that refer to subdivisions, easements and highways. A plat of subdivision is when a landowner divides land into smaller parcels, which in turn require easements to access and public utilities.
