Request a Survey Estimate.
A survey enables a Land Surveyor to accurately and physically mark the corners of client's property. The survey will identify easements and any encroachments and boundary line conflicts that may exist.
A Land Survey should be conducted before a real estate transaction, when subdividing any parcel and prior to making any improvements on a piece of property or when you think a neighbor may be encroaching on your property.
Methods of Survey
Eckman Engineering, LLC utilizes a number of methods to complete a survey. State of the art equipment such as RTK GPS, a highly accurate and portable global positioning system, dramatically cuts the time spent in the field and results in an extremely cost effective layout and location of various physical features. Total Stations with data loggers are used in manual boundary and topographical surveys. Aerial photography and Lidar, similar to radar, are also possible for larger projects.
Salem Bridge Project
The survey crew at Eckman Engineering worked on this Salem NH Bridge in 2010. We provided construction layout for all aspects of the bridge and road construction.
Bradford Bridge Project
For this Bradford, New Hampshire bridge, we provided the layout for the contractor as well as the layout verification for the design engineer.
Shoreline Protection Plan
We created a shoreland protection plan on Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire for the owner to build improvements within the protected shoreland.
Langdon Boundary Survey
We conducted a recent boundary survey in Langdon, NH that involved the recovery of several 100+ year old monuments with unclear boundary lines. It required the researching of deeds back to 1780 and earlier.
Considering Having a Boundary Survey Done?
If you answer YES to any of the following questions, you should have a Boundary Survey Done:
- Do you plan to subdivide your land some day?
- Do you plan to sell your land?
- Would you like to have an accurate map of your land?
- Are you planning an addition to a building or expanding a driveway?
- Would you like to know where your property corners are?
- Do you think your neighbor is encroaching on your land?
- Would you like to adjust your property line to a location more suitable to you and your neighbor?
- If you own more than one abutting parcel, would you like to merge or consolidate them into one parcel?
How much will a Boundary Survey cost?
The price of a survey depends on the following variables:
- Type of Survey: The required precision and scope.
- Research: The number of parcels involved and past transactions.
- Size and Shape of the Parcel: An irregularly shaped parcel has more corners and would require additional monuments.
- Terrain: A relatively level parcel is easier to survey than a mountainous one.
- Vegetation: Often brush and small trees must be cleared to provide a line of sight.
- Accessibility: The time and difficulty of reaching all corners of theparcel.
- Existing Evidence: The existence of iron, wood or stone monuments and / or the presence of stone walls aid the survey.
- Time of year: Seasonal conditions may affect the survey, such as, foliage in the summer and dangerous travel conditions in the winter.
- Requirements: Vary from town to town and state to state.
Once the Land Surveyor has all the facts, is aware of your requirements and knows where your project is located, an estimate of costs can established.

Have you invested in land with the intention of making a return on your investment? Your return may be diminishing rather than increasing.
Today, stricter regulations are being implemented. The number of lots your parcel would yield in the past may now be greatly reduced. The trend is to slow or stop development with regulations that unfairly burden those who have invested in land. Typically, in most areas in New Hampshire the longer you wait to subdivide the lower the number of lots and return on your investment.
