Technology in the world of land surveying is fast-paced and ever changing. At Nitsch Engineering, we are dedicated to evaluating and applying the newest survey technologies, whether it’s the latest in laser total stations, robotic total stations, GIS, GPS, laser scanning, LiDAR, mobile LiDAR, or aerial photogrammetry. Our project managers work with our clients to tailor our approach and apply the appropriate level of technology to successfully accomplish project objectives.

Integrated Surveying and Engineering

Because Nitsch Engineering offers both surveying and engineering services, our surveyors have a better understanding of what engineers and architects require to develop an appropriate design for different types of projects – a clear advantage over survey-only companies. Our field and office personnel offer extensive experience, certified training, and flexibility to meet our clients’ project schedules. Nitsch Engineering has licensed surveyors in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
