CELEBRATING NATIONAL SURVEYORS WEEK
In honor of National Surveyors Week, Hampton, Lenzini and Renwick, Inc. (HLR) would like to recognize the rich history of surveying and the vital role of the modern-day surveyor in today’s infrastructure projects.
The history of surveying reaches back over three thousand years when the Egyptians first divided plots of land for the purpose of taxation; two hundred years later, the Greeks standardized procedures for surveying, incorporating the principles of geometry and developing the first survey instrument. Surveying played a central role in the expansion of colonial America. Such notable Americans as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln, as well as Daniel Boone, Henry David Thoreau, and Lewis and Clark, were surveyors; theirs and other early surveyors’ measurement of land boundaries was one of the greatest contributions toward the growth and development of the United States as we know it today.
Today there are over 45,000 professional land surveyors in the U.S. who should be recognized for their contribution to the growth and sustainability of our country. Their accurate surveys help establish property boundaries and provide the foundation for all successful engineering projects. HLR’s surveyors combine local knowledge and technical experience to deliver high-quality and responsive service to our clients. They help plan and shape our communities to provide the best quality of life possible. We are grateful for our HLR survey professionals and take this opportunity to thank them for their hard work and dedication!
