Surveying to a higher standard

interior Lidar scanning for architects


Gonzalez Strength Associates is excited to offer our clients state of the art technology with Interior Lidar Scanning (laser measuring) for your architectural needs. The time-honored methods of manual data gathering using tape measures, distometers, drawings and photographs are fast being superseded with this innovative technology. Your data can now be delivered in a matter of days instead of weeks which makes this a very cost effective tool. Our Lidar scans can provide clients a 3-D view/model of building interiors with astonishing detail and accuracy.

This specialized surveying tool uses an advanced high definition laser scanner to collect millions of data points. GSA’s skilled technicians then use the data points to develop a 3D computer model which can be exported to traditional CAD software for analysis and rendering providing you with precise calculations and measurements. Lidar scanning is optimal for a variety of projects by assisting in spatial planning, scale, and aesthetic development such as a furniture lay-out template and lighting designs with a relative accuracy to within ⅛ - 1/16 of an inch. Lidar scans are a great asset for client presentations as a spatial model for visualization of room size and shape for interior decoration and building renovations.


Need an ALTA Surveyor in Birmingham or the State of Alabama?


What is an ALTA Survey?
In 1962, the ALTA survey was created to be a document on which the title insurer could rely to make specific underwriting decisions regarding the deletion of the standard survey exceptions within a title policy. An ALTA land title survey ensures your title policy is comprehensive and all exception matters are identified, reviewed and addressed. The ALTA land title survey provides you and your team of title professionals a clear view of improvements, easements, rights-of-way and other elements that may impact the ownership and use of the subject property and control the financial risk for the owners and lenders.


A Specialized Survey:
Unlike a common boundary or topographic survey, an ALTA survey meets the highest standard recognized throughout the country and is required by most commercial lenders. The ALTA survey provides a volume of information such as:

  • Property boundaries
  • Encroachments
  • Easement and encumbrances
  • Evidence of use by other parties
  • Names of neighboring property owners
  • Structural improvements
  • Roads and property features
  • Access and legal routes to the property
  • Water boundaries
  • Flood zone classification
  • Zoning classification
  • Existence of cemeteries
  • Legal description of property


Why Choose GSA?
Choosing the right surveyor for your ALTA survey is crucial. Many companies (brokers) you find on the internet actually farm out the work to local surveyors, some of which are hardly qualified and without the proper insurance. They can leave you grossly uninformed or exposed on the purchase of your property.


At Gonzalez Strength and Associates, we have 8 In house professional land surveyors and 13 survey crews. We provide over thirty years of experience conducting thousands of ALTA surveys. Our work is time efficient and on budget. With GSA, you can be assured of quality ALTA surveys to meet your needs for commercial land development.
