How long have you been in business?
Although Mark’s experience spans over 25 years in the Civil Engineering, Land Surveying & Construction industries, Landmark began in 2004 as a land surveying company and after a brief hiatus incorporated Civil Engineering services into the business in 2018.
Do you provide building permit expiration letters for resubmission?
No. We do not provide this service. This would likely be a licensed Architect or Structural Engineer.
What is a SWPPP?
A SWPPP, Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan, is a detailed set of documents related to the phasing sequences of a construction project and is usually required for land disturbance of 1 acre or greater. State laws do not allow siltation (or sediment) to leave a disturbed site onto other properties. It must be contained and processed on-site. Sometimes if the disturbance involves a stream or lake that’s considered a “waters of the state”, then and ARAP, Aquatic Resource Alteration Permit, is required. These documents ensure the developer/contractor are following the guidelines for each respective state in terms of land disturbance and erosion control measures.
What area do you specialize in?
Although highly experienced in all aspects of any land development project, Landmark specializes in Grading and Drainage. This involves taking an existing landform, with natural drainage patterns, analyzing those patterns and reshaping to a final design that’s logical and simply works during construction.
What is an ALTA/ACSM survey?
This particular type of survey is governed by the American Land Title Association (ALTA) and American Congress on Surveying and Mapping (ACSM) and is primarily for Commercial/Retail properties. These surveys have basic policies/criteria that must be followed and typically the client will add optional services in Table A. Please contact us for more information.
Do you perform surveys by finding the endpoints of just one property line for fence construction?
No. There is more to a property line than just field locating its endpoints. Analyzing the subject and adjoining property documents and analyzing against field information is an important part of locating any property line. Lots of times it’s more cost effective and simply makes sense to properly survey the entire property.
