Nova Surveys, Inc. was founded in May of 2012 by Thomas G. Lutke, Licensed Surveyor. Tom has been surveying in Northern Virginia since 1985 and brings with him a wealth of Local surveying knowledge. Through careful crafting of technology and know-how Nova Surveys will be successful at providing our clients the best surveying product possible while also cutting down on some costs.

Gone Green…Many surveying firms have several rooms devoted to storing subdivision record plats as well as copies of all the plats they have ever produced. At Nova Surveys we want to eliminate all that. Everything we have is digitally scanned, stored to the computer server and backed up to a cloud based sever system online. The only paper plats in our office are the ones being prepared for delivery to clients. And clients who prefer digital copies can opt out of paper delivery and download their own pdf copies of their plats for our web site.

At NoVA Surveys, all the work is done locally, and your survey dollars stay in the local economy.

  • I would not recommend this business

He will not certify his surveys and does not care if the client for a loan will lose $10,000 dollar in the process because he is not willing to add the client's and lenders name on the survey. He advise he does not care and as long as he gets paid

  • I would recommend this business

Pricing came in well below other survey companies, and came out with pretty short notice. Plat was written within a couple days of the survey and mailed me a bunch of hard copy plats to save me time on printing for permits. Would strongly recommend.
