very beginning, land surveying has played a major role in Hornor Brothers
Engineers' scope of business. For many years it was the company's single
biggest interest. Today, while the emphasis has shifted more toward design
and project management, survey work continues to comprise an important part
of the service the firm provides.
Hornor Brothers Engineers has performed survey work for over
10,000 individual property owners and hundreds of commercial and industrial
clients. These services include contour and
feature location maps, lot and farm surveys, alta surveys, subdivisions, gas well
locations, triangulation surveys, stock pile inventories, and offset surveys
for road construction, to name a few. These surveying
capabilities compliment the other areas of business, such as
project design, and enable the company to handle a maximum amount of project
responsibility internally. The service areas for all the firm's water system expansion projects are surveyed on the ground to produce highly detailed construction mapping. HBE utilizes a handheld GPS unit, total station instruments with data collector and AutoCAD capabilities, which help provide for timely, sharp, finished plats and drawings.
