Surveying is the science of accurately determining points in terrain and the relative position of various features both on the land and underground and determining the distances and angles between each point. Land surveyors conduct a detailed inspection of the land and gather important information by performing in-depth studies including taking measurements, researching legal documents, analyzing historical documents, conducting data analysis, making observations, filling out questionnaires, establishing property boundaries, and examining building plans.
Our skilled land surveyors in Hoover have extensive training and years of experience in their craft. They utilize engineering, geometry, physics, mathematics, and science to achieve precise drawings and mappings. By determining the relative position of points both above ground and underground, and researching legal and historical records, we help builders and contractors rest easy knowing the land is safe, they have the right to build within certain property lines, and they can successfully move forward with their project.
There are many types of surveying and which type is necessary is dependent on a number of factors such as what type of project is being planned for a plot of land, whether there’s bodies of water on the land, and the history of the land. Some examples of different types of surveying include:

Surveying determines the relative positions of objects or varying points on the earth’s surface. A “point” may be any physical object such as a ditch, storm drain, road, culvert or property corner. Distances and varying directions determine the horizontal positions of each point. Vertical points are determined by differences in elevation of the land. Whether your project requires a simple boundary survey to define your property line, a topographic survey to detail the terrain, or a flood survey for insurance purposes, you can count on Tucker Engineering to provide you with precise data.
An elevation certificate documents important features of your property, including whether it’s located within a flood zone, its precise location, building attributes and the elevation of a building’s lowest floor. This information is crucial and often required by insurance companies to determine flood insurance premiums.
We can determine your base flood elevation, which is a computed elevation based on how floodwater is predicted to rise during a flood. Base Flood Elevations (BFEs) are shown on Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs). A BFE is a regulatory requirement for the elevation or floodproofing of structures.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is an official source for flood hazard maps. According to its website, FEMA works to identify flood hazards, assess flood risks and partner with states and communities to provide accurate flood hazard and risk data. Flood hazard mapping is a key part of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). It helps establish NFIP regulations and flood insurance requirements.
