HIGHTERRA LAND SURVEYING offers expertise in Utah surveying. Some of the related areas of surveying Highterra Land Surveying specializes in are as follows: Land Surveying, Construction Staking, Design Data Collection, Monumentation, Route/Alignment, PLSS Retracement, Subdivision Plats, and Easement.
  • Land Surveying - As owner of Highterra Land Surveying I have vast experience in boundary surveying.  I have done a lot of retracement surveys in both urban and rural areas.  I relocated (going home) to a rural area in 2007, therefore my specialty for over a decade now is rural surveying and the unique problems associated with these areas, particularly Sanpete County and surround areas both mountains and valleys.

  • Construction Staking - I have a great and very varied experience in construction layout.  I have staked everything from houses to commercial developments and up to big industrial construction. I don’t currently pursue this type of work, however I may still provide these services for projects that I design and for long time clients.
  • Design Data Collection - I have a lot of experience in collecting the design data required for all kinds of developments.  Topographic mapping, with all the nuancies required to complete the design, takes a long time to learn and we have learned it well.  Most data collection we perform is related to our other work, however, we can collect data for other professionals.
  • Monumentation - Highterra Land Surveying provides the best quality monumentation for boundary corners.  I use engraved one quarter inch thick stainless steel discs for easy identification and superior longevity that are welded to substantial steel bars. These survey markers can't be removed from the steel bar, animals can't chew them, they are extremely durable. This marking system was developed by Mr. Day. I will use other monumentation materials such as concrete or brass upon request.  I take special pride in the monumentation of my work.  Don’t ask me to use plastic survey caps. Why spend good money for a survey and then end up with poor/cheap boundary markers that won't stand up to the passage of time?

  • Route/Alignment - Highterra Land Surveying can locate and design alignments for roads, pipelines and other utitlities.
  • PLSS Retracement - The Public Land System (PLSS) appears to be a simple system of squares but under the hood it is very complex.  PLSS Retracement is a specialty and Mr. Day has the knowledge and experience to do this work.  It is a favorite of which I can never get enough.
  • Subdivision Plats - Highterra Land Surveying can do the surveying and design of your subdivision.  I prefer rural county and mountain subdivisions and small to medium towns and cities. I have done a lot of small to medium subdivisions in Sanpete County.  I could but perfer not to work the urban Wasatch Front.
  • Easement - Highterra has the experience to survey and develop easement descriptions for new easements or to locate existing easements.
