Our Process at Sunde
First, we will talk with you and discuss your project needs. We will then develop a proposal for you based on site research and your requirements. If you select our land surveying firm, we will assemble our survey team of highly skilled technical field members and dedicated office personnel to perform a survey based on your individual needs, such as a survey for construction, land, building, or property.
Sunde Land Surveying is one of the few companies in Minnesota that offers the full use of a research department that specializes in calling Gopher State One Calls, obtaining document research, utility research, zoning information, adjoining owners, right of way and survey information from the appropriate County and State agencies. With this department, we can get a jump start on any project by obtaining the land title documents before we actually receive the title commitment which helps us to foresee any potential problems in an efficient manner.
In the Field
Our field crews will be dispatched to the site with the appropriate equipment to get the job done in the most efficient and accurate manner. We currently are using Topcon GPS & Total Station equipment along with Geodimeter Total Stations to provide the best technology to data collect your site. Upon the completion of the field work, the survey office staff will begin the drafting of the drawing itself utilizing the latest CAD software.
Our Quality Control staff will check over the entire survey to check for accurate measurement, spelling and readability. The survey office staff will also help answer questions and get your key people a copy of the survey upon completion in a wide array of formats.
Our entire staff is ready to go the extra mile for you and your project. We are ready to go above and beyond your expectations.
The initial work order is written to make sure all employees receive the most detailed information regarding the project including the township, range, section, address, work description, contact information, and legal description. This ensures that everyone is on the same page when the project is started.
The field crews verify benchmark elevations by checking into a minimum of 2 published benchmarks per site. Horizontal control is based off of County Coordinates via section corners and MNDOT monumentation. A minimum of 2 horizontal control monuments are used per site. Traverses are checked for closure upon return to the office. The total stations are field calibrated monthly to ensure that we are upholding the utmost accuracy on the information that we collect.
Once the job is processed in the field and the draftsperson starts working on the project, the project manager will meet with each department to go over any questions with regard to the utilities, boundary information, or any other items. After this meeting, the information that is needed to answer the questions will be obtained by either the field crews or the research specialist, and the completed information will be added to the survey.
Prior to the survey being delivered, the drawing will be checked by our Quality Control Specialist. All changes will be made and the delivery method and time will be confirmed with you to make sure that the survey arrives to you as soon as you need it. Upon receipt of the survey, any comments or questions that you may have will be addressed by the project manager and, if required, a revised survey will be issued showing any changes.
Your satisfaction is guaranteed and we will do the best we can to make the survey exactly what you need to complete your project on time and within budget.
