Efficiency is Key

Our team of experienced professionals is equipped with the most powerful instruments and technology available in order to produce efficient land surveys.

We have experienced survey crews that serve Nashville and the Southeastern United States. Our survey department works with both public and private sector clients covering a wide range of project types, including shopping centers, hospitals, business parks, roadways, colleges, parks, airports, and parking lots.

Our spectrum of services includes boundary & topographic surveying, construction stakeout, GPS, GIS database and mapping, horizontal and vertical control, final record surveys, and plat recording.

Land Survey Services

At Chastain-Skillman, land survey is just one of the elements in our robust suite of survey and engineering services. By working with our firm, you will enjoy both the cost-efficiencies and the convenience that comes with having a professional team manage your project from start to finish.

While we are innately driven by a desire to innovate, weโ€™ve consistently prioritized precision. Thus, our field crews are equipped with the latest Trimble robotic total stations and Trimble GPS receivers, and our project management team utilizes Trimble Business Center and AutoCAD Civil 3D for field data processing and office calculations.

Finally, our field team has invested in training and certification in the following, to ensure a level of accuracy that results in cost and time efficiencies for our clients.

  • Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) – Limited Qualification for Land Surveying Services
  • CSX Railroad
  • Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA)

Wondering about another certification? Just ask. Our personnel has undergone training and certification in a number of local industrial sites that may be unlisted. Contact our Nashville land surveyors.


Through boundary and topographic surveying, our Nashville-based team will provide essential information about easements, improvements, zoning restrictions, and encroachments, as well as the location of natural and man-made structures that exist on a parcel of land.

ALTA Survey

Unlike a basic boundary survey, an ALTA survey provides a more in-depth look at a property, showcasing its boundaries, improvements, easements, rights-of-way, and other significant elements. If youโ€™re in need of an ALTA survey in Nashville, TN, look no further than Chastain-Skillman. With our expertise and commitment to excellence, you can be confident in the accuracy and thoroughness of the survey you receive.


Based on engineered design plans, architectural drawings, and structural drawings of your site and building, our team will compute the location of improvements and mark the proposed new structures to ensure that the structures are built according to the design plans.


We use geographic information systems to gather, manage, and analyze data, resulting in more accurate and less expensive surveys.


Weโ€™ll use control surveys to set a standard of precision and a framework around which all subsequent surveys can be adjusted.


We will prepare a legal recording of how your tract of land is divided into lots, including the dimensions of the property before improvements are made, boundary locations, nearby streets, easements, flood zones, and more.
