Moving your project from design into development depends upon the timely delivery of accurate data. This is where GBA stands apart. Our team pairs advanced surveying technology solutions with prompt, attentive service to deliver the data upon which our public and private clients rely.
Our roots were formed by successfully performing survey services, and for more than 50 years we have served as a nationwide resource for projects of all sizes. While we’ve earned a reputation for providing innovative services to large, complex projects, our professionals provide the same unmatchable level of service no matter the project size. Our staff is licensed in six states Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Iowa, Nebraska and Colorado.
This versatility is supported in part by a powerful array of in-house surveying technology. Our crews are equipped with off-road vehicles and unmanned aerial vehicles to reduce downtime. These mobile units come outfitted with the most advanced LiDAR units and scanning stations on the market. Having these powerful options at our disposal allows our team of experts to easily adapt in the field. The result is reliable base mapping, documentation and resources that simplify future asset management and development.
