Reliable, efficient cost-effective.

Sweetland Engineering & Associates began primarily as a surveying company and has diversified since its inception in 1970. No project is too large or too small for our highly experienced survey team.

The basis for any land survey or construction project is the development of an accurate survey. Our team uses the most advanced survey equipment, both Robotic and GPS along with our data collection and CAD software programs to allow our field-to-finish process to be a smooth transition. Our Team has over 100 years of combined experience. Whether we are performing surveys that preserve farmlands and open space or providing stakeout services for large- or small-scale construction projects, our survey team will provide a quality service in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
