Focused on Surveying

With decades of experience, our licensed land surveyors combine knowledge, training, and technology to consistently produce accurate and timely representation of the conditions in the field for our private and public sector clients. Operating out of all three office locations, Davis Bowen & Friedel field crews are equipped with the latest survey technology, including Global Positioning Systems (GPS), capabilities and Topcon Robotic Total Stations providing horizontal and vertical control with high-precision, long baseline surveys.


Our extensive understanding of the local area including, history, soil and water conditions, sensitive areas, and habitats, provides clients with efficient due diligence. Detailed data allows for accurate location of proposed buildings, easements, restrictions, accesses, drainage, pipelines, boundaries, topography, and other existing infrastructure for future development planning. Our certified UAV (drone), services can also be utilized during this phase to further assist clients.

Working with developers, builders, and contractors, our field crews can complete construction stakeouts, house layouts, elevation certificates, road as-builts, and machine control models for projects as small as single office buildings to as large as multi-phase communities.

Whether a client is buying a piece of land requiring a boundary survey, making improvements to a property, or subdividing a property, DBF can assist with surveys identifying rights-of-way, easements, and other valuable data necessary to make any home or land purchase as transparent as possible.

DBF offers in-house unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) drone services. Using a high precision, professional-grade drone to collect photogrammetric data, our UAV capabilities offer ample and unique possibilities for our clients. UAV services provide for more efficient, safer, and cost-effective drone-based aerial data collection, scanning areas of land in a fraction of the time. The equipment and technology we use, combined with our expertise, provide our clients with additional reliability, quality, and accuracy for their projects.
