The History of Survey One, LLC.


The idea and dream of Survey One was planted in 1978 when a employer evaluation  question was posed: “What would you like to do in the future?” Without hesitation the answer came: “I’d like to have my own surveying business.”

Shortly afterward, while working on a Forest Service Cadastral job in the Eagle Cap Mountains in Northeast Oregon, CB radios were used to maintain communication with log truck traffic as we negotiated the narrow winding mountain roads. “Survey One” was adopted as a “CB Handle” while in the area to let the truck drivers know what to expect. The name stuck.

Fast forward to early 2000 and the dream was revived, when the Oregon State Board of Examiners for Engineering and Land Surveying (OSBEELS) approved the application to sit for the Oregon Professional Land Surveyor’s License.  Trying to run an excavation business and prepare for the intense exam created a stressful situation, but in January of 2005, with the license in hand and the need to distance the surveying business from the excavation business to acquire Professional Liability Insurance “Survey One, LLC.” took on a life of it’s own.
