Surveying

The LDC Approach

LDC combines the latest in surveying technology with an “old school”, service-first approach. Our personal service and attention to detail separate us from other surveying/engineering companies. Our projects include subdivision/plat work, Telecom surveys, mapping and topographic surveys, and public works projects. Our crews operate with Leica robotic total stations (with scanning capability) implementing Captivate/Viva software and Leica GPS units. We also operate with Leica Exchange which enables us to share data back-and-forth with our field crews in real-time. Our crews are experienced and capable of reacting to your changing needs in the field.

As a contractor, we don’t always have a choice in which survey or engineering firm we work with on projects. However, with LDC as a part of the project team, we can expect thorough engineering and consistent surveying, which helps make for a successful project.
