Survey

The first step to streamlined design and construction is a thorough understanding of a project location's makeup and boundaries. CHA's comprehensive approach to survey work is the hallmark of a successful project. We strive for rapid response. Our size and diversity in skillsets enables us to mobilize quickly to meet demanding schedule requirements. We are a survey group that is focused on the use of advanced measurement technology to improve our process and results. Many of our staff are industry leaders that have published articles in trade magazines and regularly present at local, state and international trade shows and conferences.
