Since the Company’s founding in 1970, Land Surveying has played a vital role in the growth and development of Senate Engineering Company.  From the earliest lot surveys to large Farm Tract Surveys to Engineering Support Surveys for our Municipal Clients to major Retail Developments such as the Waterfront Shopping Complex, our Survey Department has grown not only from a project standpoint, but also from the technological aspect.  Senate Engineering has long been a front runner in the latest in surveying technology.  Auto CAD, total stations w/data collection, RTK/GPS, and most recently Robotic Total Stations allow our personnel to work more efficiently, affording our clients with cost savings and a higher quality product:
