To the Land of Canavan & Associates Land Surveyors

If you are looking for a reliable surveying company, trust the experts in Canavan & Associates. We offer construction and property surveying services based in the Smithfield, RI area. Whether for commercial or residential properties, we are the right surveyors for you. There are those who’d look at Land Surveying as a trade profession, one that if you  know how to apply the technology and tools, you should be able to survey.  It is  important to realize that Land Surveying is as much an “Art” as it is a “Science”. While one might assume that the manipulation of property and numbers might be  devoid of art, only the contrary can be true.  Many properties have considerable  problems with regards to improper bounding, miscalculations in past surveys, legal  descriptions, titles or easements.  Also many properties are created from multiple  divisions of a larger piece over the course of years, and with every additional division  the risk of error increases.  The result can be abutting properties not coinciding with  adjacent parcels, resulting in gaps and overlaps.  The art comes to play when one must essentially build a puzzle with pieces  that do not exactly fit together.  In these cases the solution is based upon proper research and interpretation following  established procedures for resolving such discrepancies. The basic principles have changed little over the ages, but the tools have evolved tremendously.  The application of technology  has affected all occupations and Canavan & Associates, Inc. has a wealth of the latest technical applications, specialties and tools we can utilize for your project. With a staff comprised of a small, highly skilled, specialized workforce we have been practicing the “Art” and “Science” of  Construction layout, Survey Engineering and Land Survey in the New England Area for over 30 years.
