Press Release Summary: Corona, California, July 21, 2008 - Calvada Surveying, Inc., a land surveying company providing professional land surveying services, including ALTA Surveys, ACSM Surveys and 3D High Definition Land Surveying (High Definition Laser Scanning) services throughout the Western United States has won a contract for 25 ALTA survey projects of various property sites for a well known international bank..
Press Release Body: Of these 25 projects, 4 project sites are in Southern California, 19 in Northern California (SF, Oakland and San Jose area), and 2 in Northern Nevada. The 4 South California sites were mobilized within one day from the Notice to Process and the Northern California and Nevada sites were assigned to 2 two-man field crews by Calvada Surveying. The first crew took 6 days to finish 13 sites, including some completing property research. The second crew took 4 days to complete work on the remaining 8 sites. True to their reputation of successfully completing projects with very tight deadlines, Calvada Surveying started the office procedures as soon as the data was received from the field, and it will be completed soon after receiving all the supporting documents from the client. All jobs are slated for completion by the end of July 2008.
Calvada Surveying is working on this contract on behalf of a regional architecture and engineering firm headquartered in Southern California. All 25 site surveys are based on ALTA/ACSM standards, which is Calvada Surveying's area of expertise.
ALTA stands for American Land Title Association. ALTA is the national trade association and voice of the abstract and title insurance industry. ALTA members search, review and insure land titles to protect home buyers and mortgage lenders who invest in real estate. ACSM stands for American Congress on Surveying and Mapping. ALTA/ACSM survey is a detailed map of a parcel of land including all of the improvements, features and easements appurtenant to or encumbering the parcel as described in the title report provided by the title insurance company. In other words, it's a boundary survey, a title survey and an improvement location survey.
During this contract, Calvada Surveying faced many hurdles but overcame them with ease mainly due to their dedicated staff and management. These 25 jobs were received all in one day, and Calvada Surveying had to make sure that they would still be able to meet the deadline without affecting the productivity within the other survey departments in their office. For this reason it was decided by the management to utilize drafting resources outside of the office in addition to its internal staff.
Also, Calvada Surveying had a very strict deadline to complete the work. As a result they could not afford mistakes or delays. Thus, all research and in office support was provided to the field crews prior to their departure (addresses, contacts, direction, etc). Moreover, to keep the job flow to the office continuous, the field crew transmitted their captured field data every evening to the office so that the office procedures could be started next day.
The client is truly happy with the customer service provided by Calvada Surveying. Calvada Surveying had a special request by the client to finish the Orange County (Southern California) sites first. In fact, they deploy project staff within 1 day after receiving all the supporting documents and Notice to Proceed from the client.
