Our History


LWS’s experience in supporting and managing large scale projects traces its roots back to our founder, Les Welch’s, passion for survey and mapping services. No matter the project scope or size, LWS prides itself in providing unmatched services to its clients across all market segments.

Founded in 1998, LWS has developed systems, processes and methods of managing data through the “full data lifecycle” for more than 40,000 miles of linear projects. Since that time, LW Survey Company has grown to include fourteen offices both domestic and international. In fact, LW Survey has more Professional Licensed Surveyors in more locations than any of our competitors.
