  • ALTA/ACSM Land Title Surveys

    EEC has completed numerous ALTA/ACSM surveys in Arizona. These surveys range from 20' by 20' parcels for wireless communications, to a 6,000 acre parcel for proposed residential and commercial development. Our survey team uses a variety of GIS and public record websites to research descriptions and easements affecting subject properties. When necessary, title companies are contracted to provide additional legal information. These steps ensure our clients that their bona fide right of ownership is well protected and represented. Final drawings and documents are prepared digitally according to the latest ALTA/ACSM standards for accuracy with attention to special requests by the client.

    Service Areas Include:

    • Parcels
    • Developments
    • Research
    • Data Collection

  • Boundary and Topographic Surveys Staking

    EEC has surveyed hundreds of parcels of land in Southern Arizona, and is well versed in researching public records, monument records, and reading and interpreting legal descriptions. EEC follows the State Board of Technical Registration Standards, providing research, accuracy, monumentation, and recording. If a project requires topographic mapping on the ground, EEC uses a Total Station and Data Collector or GPS unit. The crew gathers information and downloads it into our computer system, and after analyzing the data, we prepare DTM files and a contour map showing countours, spot elevations, ties to existing monuments, and existing right-of-way lines.

    Service Areas Include:

    • Monumentation
    • Recording
    • Easements
    • Research

  • Construction Staking

    EEC has completed a wide variety of construction surveying. We provide construction layout for mass grading, rough cut, sewer, water, dry utilities, curb and retaining walls. We also provide bluetopping of both subgrade and AB along with the staking of new survey monuments. After the project is complete, as-builts are prepared to assist in release of assurances.

    Service Areas Include:

    • Construction Layout
    • Bluetopping
    • Monument Staking
    • As-Builts
    • Building Layout

  • Design Surveys

    Before a project can be designed, the engineer needs to know everything that could affect a potential design including existing design features and ownership. EEC has provided design surveys for our own engineering department as well as for various other engineering firms.

    Service Areas Include:

    • Topographic Surveys
    • Easements
    • Boundaries

    • Utilities

  • Legal Descriptions and Exhibits

    EEC's Survey Department has prepared hundreds of legal descriptions. These descriptions range from leases for telecommunication sites to strip easements for public utilities. EEC is well versed in the nuances of legal description preparation, so there is no ambiguity which could cause confusion in the future. In addition, EEC follows the rules of the State Board of Technical Registration Standards for all new legal descriptions.

    Service Areas Include:

    • Legals
    • Sketches
    • Easements

  • Locating and Setting Property Pins

    It is the policy of EEC's Survey Department to not "blindly accept" a monument without verifying its location. A search of public records and search in the field for supplemental monumentation will be completed before a found monument is accepted. The same criteria will be followed before a monument is set.

    Service Areas Include:

    • Verification
    • Monumentation
    • Record and Field Search
