Colonial Surveying Company was founded by Richard Nelson in 1993. Richard, the son of a surveyor started surveying with his dad before the age of ten, and continued to work along side his father until his fathers retirement in 1989. Colonial Surveying Co, Inc was incorporated as a Massachusetts corporation in 1998.
We have added several small satellite offices since then to better accomadate our large clients who have a projects spanning a large geographical area.
Through all this we have remained a small family owned and operated business committed to providing the service of yesteryear while utilizing the technology of today.
Our field crews drive well marked company four wheel drive vehicles and use: robotic total stations, dual frequency RTK GPS, laptop and handheld computers for data collection and calculations in the field. Each crew has access to snowmobiles and ATV's for those remote sites you cannot drive to with four wheel drive.
We strive to prove to you that Colonial Surveying Co, Inc is the company you need for all your surveying and mapping needs.
