Of these 25 projects, 4 project sites are in Southern California, 19 in Northern California (SF, Oakland and San Josearea), and 2 in Northern Nevada. The 4 South California sites were mobilized within one day from the Notice toProcess and the Northern California and Nevada sites were assigned to 2 two-man field crews by Calvada Surveying.The first crew took 6 days to finish 13 sites, including some completing property research. The second crew took 4days to complete work on the remaining 8 sites. True to their reputation of successfully completing projects withvery tight deadlines, Calvada Surveying started the office procedures as soon as the data was received from thefield, and it will be completed soon after receiving all the supporting documents from the client. All jobs are slatedfor completion by the end of July 2008.

Calvada Surveying is working on this contract on behalf of a regional architecture and engineering firmheadquartered in Southern California. All 25 site surveys are based on ALTA/ACSM standards, which is CalvadaSurveying’s area of expertise.

ALTA stands for American Land Title Association. ALTA is the national trade association and voice of the abstract andtitle insurance industry. ALTA members search, review and insure land titles to protect home buyers and mortgagelenders who invest in real estate. ACSM stands for American Congress on Surveying and Mapping. ALTA/ACSMsurvey is a detailed map of a parcel of land including all of the improvements, features and easements appurtenantto or encumbering the parcel as described in the title report provided by the title insurance company. In otherwords, it’s a boundary survey, a title survey and an improvement location survey.

During this contract, Calvada Surveying faced many hurdles but overcame them with ease mainly due to theirdedicated staff and management. These 25 jobs were received all in one day, and Calvada Surveying had to makesure that they would still be able to meet the deadline without affecting the productivity within the other surveydepartments in their office. For this reason it was decided by the management to utilize drafting resources outside ofthe office in addition to its internal staff.

Also, Calvada Surveying had a very strict deadline to complete the work. As a result they could not afford mistakesor delays. Thus, all research and in office support was provided to the field crews prior to their departure(addresses, contacts, direction, etc). Moreover, to keep the job flow to the office continuous, the field crewtransmitted their captured field data every evening to the office so that the office procedures could be started nextday.

The client is truly happy with the customer service provided by Calvada Surveying. Calvada Surveying had a specialrequest by the client to finish the Orange County (Southern California) sites first. In fact, they deploy project staffwithin 1 day after receiving all the supporting documents and Notice to Proceed from the client.
