SANDS SURVEYING INC. is a professional land surveying firm based in Kalispell, Montana, which began operations on September 1, 1985.

Over the years, land surveying projects have been completed for thousands of private individuals, large companies and governmental agencies throughout northwest Montana on jobs varying from small lot retracements to major subdivisions, from topographical work, construction staking and aerial mapping projects to boundary surveys consisting of major section breakdowns and difficult riparian boundary retracements.  Since September 1985, SANDS SURVEYING INC. has completed and recorded over 3500 Certificates of Surveys and Subdivision Plats in Montana.

Our staff is highly skilled in planning and subdivision design.  We have completed minor, two-lot subdivisions to major 300+ lot golf course developments. We are experienced in designing subdivisions through difficult terrain and helping developers take their ideas from plan to finish. Our two licensed planners are knowledgeable in the current planning and zoning regulations and work closely with our clients to complete Neighborhood Plan Documents, Growth Policy Amendments, Environmental Assessments, Zoning Amendments and Subdivisions.

There is a licensed surveyor on every crew we send in the field and they are experienced in every type of field survey.  Our crews are thorough and professional and complete the field work efficiently.
