The future of surveying and design is point-cloud-based data collection. A highly trained crew of AWC surveyors operates our LIDAR drone to collect billions of points of precise data from all manner of job sites, covering hundreds of acres of developed and undeveloped land, industrial plant operations, and all manner of construction sites. From the gathered point cloud, designers and project managers design, annotate, and dimension their projects from true to life 3D data.


Our experienced surveying staff uses the most current GPS, Total Station, and robotic surveying equipment to provide accurate and reliable surveys for our clients. AWC surveyors are all regularly TWIC, ISTC, and DISA certified to allow for prompt entry into any working environment. Survey types include:

• Topographic
• Boundary
• Right of way
• Construction layout
• ALTA/ACSM Surveys

• As-Built surveys
• Hydrographic
• Aerial mapping
• Aerial LiDAR
• Floodplain certification
