Land Surveying

Land surveying is the basis of all real estate transfers, engineering and architectural design, and construction activities.

Surveying has come a long way since Stonehenge was mapped out using peg and rope methods! Modern surveyors use a wide array of tools and technology to establish land maps and determine boundaries.

MSA Surveyors – Setting the Baseline

In 1978, MSA added surveying to our service portfolio. Today, loyal clients choose MSA for their surveying needs, knowing that we facilitate timely real estate closings and accurate recording of property plats. Our topographic and property line data is the basis for sound design, and contractors enjoy priority response from MSA for construction surveying.

MSA has become known as the firm of choice for resolution of property line disputes and other complex land discrepancies. We know that accuracy begins with thorough legal research of recorded property data.
