#1 Surveying Firm in SE Recognized for Innovation, Adds 30 New Geomatics Professionals

Raleigh—For the fourth time in five years, the national engineering, surveying and planning firm of McKim & Creed, Inc. has been named the #1 surveying and mapping firm in the Southeast by Engineering News-Record Southeast magazine.

Rankings are based on the previous year’s revenues from projects in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina.

McKim & Creed has developed a reputation for being successful adopters and innovators of leading-edge technology. The company was recently featured at the International Esri User Conference in San Diego for its use of unmanned aerial systems (UAS), also known as drones, to save approximately 60% in data collection costs for coastal surveys. McKim & Creed was also included in a Wall Street Journal article about how new FAA rules are encouraging innovation within the UAS industry.  

The firm has added more than 30 people to its geomatics staff since the beginning of the year, with a particular focus on expanding UAS, subsurface utility engineering (SUE), hydrographic surveying, airborne and mobile LiDAR, GIS and terrestrial laser scanning services in Texas, Georgia, Florida and North Carolina. McKim & Creed operates 21 offices throughout the U.S. and has nearly 400 employees, 200 of which are geomatics professionals.
