• As-Builts and Mortgage Surveys

    As-Builts and Mortgage Surveys

    Abuilt surveys are typically required when purchasing or selling a home. These surveys locate improvements on a site relative to the property lines. Features shown on these includes buildings, wells, driveways, and other visible, above ground improvements. As-builts also show easements recorded on the record plat, legal   access, and the record boundary information. A stamped drawing by an Alaskan Registered Professional Surveyor will be provided.

  • Boundary Survey/Lot Line

    Boundary Survey/Lot Line

    If you’re building a new fence, developing a vacant lot or just wondering where the extents of your property are, ACS can perform a boundary survey. During a boundary survey, the survey crew will search for monuments on your lot and in your subdivision to determine the location of your boundary lines. Once the boundary lines are established, ACS can set a variety of markers along the lines like wood stakes, metal spikes and flagging to ensure you or your contractor can locate them.  If monuments are missing and need to be reset, a record of survey or a record of monumentation is filed at State of Alaska Recorder’s Office.

  • Plot Plan

    Plot Plan

    A plot plan survey is usually required when building new improvements to an existing structure or when building on a vacant parcel. ACS will begin the plot plan by completing an as-built survey of your property to locate and show all existing improvements. Once these have been located a topographic survey is performed to show the existing ground drainage features.

    The new proposed additions or structures are shown on the as-built survey to create the plot plan. Plot plans are useful for determining the best location to add an improvement and to avoid building in property line setbacks or existing easements.

    Plot plans stamped by a State of Alaska Registered Professional Surveyor are typically required in some areas of Alaska in order to obtain a building permit.

  • Site Plan/Topographic Survey

    Site Plan/Topographic Survey

    Site Plans are generally used for new commercial development. This survey provides detailed information for future improvements or development. Site Plan surveys incorporate both boundary and topographic information. Site plan surveys locate any existing improvements and ground topography, as well as below ground improvements such as water/sewer lines and buried utilities.

  • ALTA Land Title Surveys

    ALTA Land Title Surveys

    The American Land Title Association (ALTA) and the American Congress on Surveying and Mapping (ACSM) have jointly developed a set of land surveying standards, with the goal of promoting uniformity in survey information. An ALTA Survey is a boundary and improvement survey, often performed on commercial properties as it will provide the title company the information required to insure the title to the land and improvements to the high degree that a commercial development may require.

  • Subdivision Surveys

    Subdivision Surveys

    A Subdivision survey is the process splitting a tract of land into smaller parcels. The survey shows the property monumentation and survey data on a map in conformance with the local platting authority requirements. These requirements give standards for designating residential and commercial lots sizes, roads, easements and how city services will be extended to each lot. An as-built survey, topographic survey and search for existing monuments may be needed. The region you’re in defines which platting authority to use and the requirements for the plat. 

    One of the first tasks for a plat is to submit a preliminary copy of your plan to the corresponding platting authority to ensure what you’d like to do is possible within the platting authority’s requirements for subdivisions.  After approval by the platting authority and the client, the survey crew sets monuments at the corners of the new property lines. After the monuments are set the final plat is finished, then it is signed by the respective owners and submitted to the local platting authority for recording the plat in the appropriate State of Alaska Recording District.

  • Laser Scanning Surveys

    Laser Scanning Surveys

    Laser scanning is a relatively new technology that allows ACS to make accurate measurements in complicated environments.  Our 3D laser scanner collects 50,000 survey grade data points a second.  This dense data creates a 3D point cloud from which we can generate a 3D model of virtually any surface or structure.  Some of the laser scan surveys that we can provide are;

    Tunnel Surveys

    Road & Bridge Modeling and Assessment

    Digital Terrain Models

    Building Scans for design and restoration

    Wall deformation
