Smoky Mountain Land Surveying, PA (SMLS), located in Franklin, NC, offers a full range of mapping and land surveying services to private landowners, public agencies, design professionals and building contractors throughout Western North Carolina. Ben West, Owner and President, has over 30 years of experience as a Professional Land Surveyor in our service area.
Ben has taken great pride in delivering a professional product to those his surveying office serves. He and his staff understand that since many of their clients are not using the services of a land surveyor on a regular basis and may not be familiar with the products they offer, they make it a priority to treat each client with the personal, patient and courteous attention they deserve. We are dedicated to providing their clients with the highest quality service while completing our surveying projects on time and within budget.
Smoky Mountain Land Surveying utilizes conventional survey equipment along with survey-grade Global Positioning System (GPS) technology to provide the client with an accurate and precise description of his or her property corners and boundaries.
We use AutoCAD drafting and design software and the latest in computer technology to process, design and map each project. This digital information can be easily passed to or used by the client or any legal or design professional in their field of expertise.
Our field crews work primarily in North Carolina’s seven westernmost counties of Macon, Jackson, Clay, Graham, Cherokee, and Swain.
We have in our completed project files several thousand plats of perimeter, topographic and construction stakeout surveys ranging in size from 0.0001 acre to over 1000 acres. Initially, a large percentage of our work was in the form of property boundary and road right-of-way survey projects for the United States Forest Service. As time passed, our work load gradually shifted from those contracts to work performed in the private sector. Over the years, we have developed close working relationships with many of the attorneys, lending institutions, design professionals and building contractors in this area.
