Southern Survey & Design

Civil Construction

Developing Communities



The application of design to realization requires expert construction surveyors for laying out. Southern Survey and Design works at the schedule of construction and uses GNSS, total stations, optical levels, and tape measures to establish construction points. This work demands accuracy, precision, and efficiency to guarantee our client’s investments.



Surveyors are necessary to coordinate plan sets with survey data, establish accurate control, buy supplies, and work out the logistics of your job site before you start moving dirt.

Southern Survey and Design currently does ongoing construction staking for several utility and heavy construction companies in East Texas. Whether it is back of curb for subdivision streets or a new restaurant, you can depend on our Technicians accuracy and speed.

Our office is always available to write a bid and meet on site.


Being based in East Texas, Southern Survey and Design’s experience in the oil field is unprecedented. Our consulting and mapping departments can work with your company on unit development, while our field technicians put “boots on the ground” to stake well locations, design pad sites and lease roads. From lease agreements to production lines, Southern Survey and Design has the resources to increase your profit.


Our office is located within minutes of the Sabine Lignite fields. And although North American Coal and Luminant have surveyors on staff, Southern Survey and Design can maintain service agreements and safety compliance for subcontracting. Whether it is boundary, lease agreements, topographic, utility relocation, aerial mapping control, or general construction survey work, Southern Survey and Design is a leader in surveying.


Site designs can now be loaded onto motor graders, dozers, and track hoes to provide the operator with real time data for position and elevation using GNSS receivers. Often a Southern Survey and Design technician will be present at the beginning of the job to establish control, register the design, and calibrate the site prior to moving dirt. As a subsidiary of Trendsetter Construction, Inc., we have the resources for all of your mass haul, excavation, and surface construction.

Our office also offers full site design services, administrative consulting, and employee training as your company enjoys the benefits and profit of machine automated control.


After construction or before, contact Southern Survey and Design for accurate data on as built or as is facilities and civil works. We can maintain constant crew presence and responsive drafting to your projects.
