Creating Your Vision




"A man's feet should be planted in his country, but his eyes should survey the world"

George Santayana

View Our Work The success of any construction project is built on the foundation of accurate surveying and mapping. We call it “following in the footsteps” — recreating historical boundaries — and MSP has in-house records from historical archives dating back to 1856. And while historical records can be key to a successful project, we don’t rely strictly on the past. We also use advanced technologies, including GPS, designed to help the job meet professional standards of care.

MSP has one of the largest surveying department operations in the Cincinnati region, with five full-time field crews. As a result of our staff size, we can handle many projects at the same time, or send multiple crews on big jobs if needed. Bottom line, MSP can respond to the clients' needs with well-trained, well-prepared and well-managed field crews.
