Surveying / Mapping

Mapping the land

We provide services for our own design projects as well as for contractors and other engineering firms throughout the Nevada and the West. Our survey projects range from complex right-of-way and boundary surveys, to individual parcel maps, to large-scale topographic mapping in forested terrain, to construction staking for major building, road, and utility projects.

We have a highly qualified survey staff, with survey crews in all of our offices.

Geotechnical

Strong foundation

The foundation of a good design rests on a solid understanding of the underlying soils. Lumos & Associates’ geotechnical staff has the experience and the expertise to investigate and evaluate complex subsurface conditions.

We have performed geotechnical investigations for large municipal buildings, commercial and industrial developments, roads, utilities, tunnels, and pipelines. We are familiar with a wide range of geotechnical stabilization techniques, including piles, reinforced earth mats, retaining walls, geotextile fabrics, and geogrids that are designed to save our clients money while providing a strong foundation for their projects.
