Our survey crews are fully equipped with the latest total-station and Global Positioning System (GPS) survey equipment. As a result, we are able to provide a variety of legal and engineering surveying services to our clients in Burlington, Kitchener, London, Stratford, and the surround areas.

As one of the pioneers in the use of Total Station survey equipment, we have developed our own software called MTE-FSP (Field Survey Processor). In short, the software is utilized for processing Total Station field surveys and automatically generating base plans, complete with symbols and annotation. This software has been licensed to all of the municipalities in Waterloo Region for their own survey crews.

As members of the Association of Ontario Land Surveyors (AOLS), we can carry out legal boundary (cadastral) surveys in Ontario. As such, MTE provides legal surveying services under the subsidiary MTE Ontario Land Surveyors Ltd.

Our Surveying Services Include:

Topographical Surveys

Our Surveyors are trained and experienced in the civil engineering field. As such, we are equipped to provide our clients with topographical surveys that are more detailed and accurate. Therefore, all relevant information that’s essential to the design is collected and represented in three dimensions.

As a result, Existing Conditions Plans are prepared thoroughly and efficiently. In turn, this lays the foundation for accurate design drawings, minimizing delays and additional costs during the design and construction stages.

Our team provides Topographic Surveys for:

    • Residential Land Development Projects
    • Commercial, Industrial and Residential Site Development Projects
