What Services Do Land Surveyors Provide?

Some might be under the misimpression that land surveyors only determine boundary lines. While this is a critical part of the work performed by FRD Surveying LLC, our work encompasses much more.

When it comes to the creation of easements, FRD Surveying LLC conducts field surveys. Accuracy is essential not only for placement of utility easements – but also for issues such as ingress and egress on or through adjacent properties.

Topographic surveying and mapping are crucial in identifying both natural and manmade features of designated areas. The survey itself collects the data used to compile the topographic map. Without this documentation; planning, development, and design will most likely lack the clarification necessary for project completion.

Flood elevation certificates are a particular concern at the Jersey Shore and are integral to helping determine premiums for flood insurance and in the preparation of construction documents and permitting.

Land surveyors are also involved in both aerial surveying and mapping. FRD Surveying LLC uses photogrammetry to supplement ground based surveys on larger parcels

Experience and Education Matter:

As the principal of FRD Surveying LLC, Frank DeSantis, PLS (Professional Land Surveyor) offers something unique. Less than five percent of land surveyors have achieved advanced degrees dedicated to their field. In Frank’s case, one of his former employers was so impressed with Frank’s work that they actually sponsored his studies for completion of New Jersey Institute of Technology’s Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology, specifically the Surveying Engineering Technology degree.

Frank’s educational credentials are coupled with more than thirty years of hands-on experience. This includes survey project management associated with road widening work, construction projects, coastal work development, farmland preservation and more.

New Jersey has specified laws when it comes to licensing requirements for land surveyors that are enumerated in NJSA 45:8-35. Frank earned the distinction as a Licensed New Jersey land surveyor in 1999 and subsequently became a member of Pennsylvania’s licensed surveyors in 2003. Legislation effective January 1, 1991, requires graduation from a board approved curriculum in surveying of four years or more to sit for the land surveying exam in New Jersey.
