Our April OC Chapter Meeting features LANDON BLAKE, PLS.
Biography:Landon works as the Mapping Department Manager for Hawkins and Associates Engineering in Modesto, California. He has been surveying in the California Central Valley for the past 15 years. He specializes in surveys for large public works projects like roads, pipelines, dams, and canals. Landon lives with his wife Monique, his black Chiwawa "Pinky" and his imitation Blake Lab "Bella" in Stockton, California.
Topic:The traditional approaches to boundary surveys used by many land surveyors makes little business sense. They expose the surveyor to unnecessary risk of reduced profit or financial loss. In this short talk, we examine three (3) of these traditional approaches and discuss why they don’t work from a business perspective. We then consider what land surveyors can learn about improving their profit performance on boundary services by looking at the way other small business people approach their work. The speaker then presents an approach he uses to improve his profit performance on boundary surveys: phasing. This discussion includes the reasons to phase a project, the project types that are best suited to phasing, and tips for how to phase a project.
