Gromatici Land Surveying was started by Eric J. Ackerman, PLS 8226 to provide the community with quality surveys while being more cost effective than many of the bloated companies serving this area. Instead of layers of management and overhead for training I can provide you with a professional product, performed by the professional.

We have AutoCAD 2012 with smart layering standards for you design professionals on topographic mapping projects. Many times requests will be made to simply survey the property. We will always attempt to save you money by asking questions, and making sure you're not paying for something you don't need. Each survey proposal can be customized to your project's needs.

I have over 22 years experience in Land Surveying and Mapping from L.A. County to San Luis Obispo County.

From Our Website

We have two offices located in Santa Barbara and Los Olivos with staff located in Santa Barbara, Solvang, and Nipomo to better serve the south and central coasts. We have two fully equiped trucks, with CAD staff. We also have a drone, for cost-effective and extremely accurate surveys. Eric is a Professional Land Surveyor, and a Certified Federal Surveyor and licensed in both Arizona and California. We are a small family owned company that works on small residential homes and also large multi-building projects.

We firmly believe that only companies that concentrate their work in certain areas can provide truly exceptional work. This means we can capture most of your site with the drone, and supplement it with some on-the-ground data like the building foundation. We can also capture adjacent grades without entering onto the neighbor's property! Gromatici's solo-operated owner is perfect for small residential surveys, custom construction and even large muti-unit subdivision work. We support the construction of office buildings and shopping centers.

Gromatici can provide the QA/QC you need with speed and efficiency to meet your budgetary needs. Eric is a former staff map checker for the City of Beullton, City Surveyor and can bring his 20 years experience in mapping with him to provide you with a cost-effective and inovotive solution to your mapping and subdivision project. Eric will bring his experience with Lot Line Adjustments (LLA) to your project to provide the best solution and requirements to see it to completion. The LLA is not simple and he will help guide you through some of the processes that you need to know prior to commencing.

Gromatici has performed construction surveys for cell towers in Santa Barbara and is an expert at GPS post-processing and GPS control surveys. We use a combination of Static and RTK cell phone modem surveys for the quick turn-around and quality data.

Gromatici's cost-effective startegies and latest in surveying technologies will help with your commercial or Real Estate project. If you need an ALTA/ACSM survey and certification, Eric will provide that to you, within budget, and on-time. Eric has performed ALTA surveys from San Bernadino County to Santa Barbara County for the last 20 years. Eric uses an inovated approch to his plats, making them easy to read and understand my real estate professionals and lay person's alike. If you're designing a commercial complex, or in the planning stages we can provide the highest-quality survey at the best value for your dollar.

Gromatici has a multi-station that includes a high-definition laser scanner. This allows us to use it for typical survey tasks like traversing control, boundary surveys, and so forth. However with on-board scanner it allows us to see the scan results real-time oriented to the survey and integrated with our survey. This speeds up the post-processing time in the office and the integration with the convential survey data. Gromatici was retained on a short notice to provide an as-built survey of a steel column on the interior of a wine-processing facility during working hours.

In an effort to keep things as cost-effective as posible Gromatici doesn't employ support staff, managers, or technicians. There is a short list of other cunsultants and expereince field personell that Eric has worked with in the past and are well qualified for some of the larger and more complex jobs that come our way if need be.

Eric believes in being thourough and cost-effective. Gromatici will utilitize robotic, GPS and even scanning technologies to mazimize saftey and cost-effecientcy while delivering the high-quality you need to see your project done without any bumps in the road!
