Surveying your future, Engineering your success.


Hurt & Proffitt’s survey department offers some of the most diverse and experience-based expertise on projects in both the private and public sectors of Virginia. With a number of active, practicing Licensed Surveyors whose combined years of experience with Hurt & Proffitt total close to seventy years, the foundation of our survey department is solid and well-rounded.

Having one of the largest survey divisions in Virginia, and working out of three offices, our survey field crews have worked on and successfully completed projects throughout most of the Commonwealth. Outfitted with cutting edge field technology, our staff has conducted boundary, topographical, right-of-way, utility, route location, construction stakeout and GPS surveys for numerous clients across Virginia, West Virginia, and North Carolina. Our GPS capabilities have been recently strengthened with the installation of a full-time dual frequency GPS base station operating continuously from our main office in Lynchburg. We are also members of a VRN (Virtual Reference Network) in the eastern part of Virginia. The base station & VRN network both communicate over the Internet via a wireless connection and provide real-time corrections to our field crews to achieve survey grade GPS accuracy. The latest field processing software is also maintained and supports this effort. This technology enables our field crews flexibility and quick response to project demands.

Our office survey staff both supports and compliments our field crews with time tested and proven methods. These procedures have successfully produced deliverables for our clients for years. At Hurt & Proffitt, we believe that our clients’ successes speak volumes about what can be expected when you are doing business with us.

“Thank you and your team for an outstanding job on the survey for Staunton River High School. Our Senior designers said it is one of the best they have seen. The attention to detail on meeting Clark Nexsen’s survey requirements is greatly appreciated. I hope we have the opportunity to work with Hurt & Proffitt again in the near future.”
