Licensed Surveyor and FounderNova 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.
In addition to being a licensed Surveyor, Tom is also a Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) and a Microsoft Certified Database Administrator. Tom has a working knowledge of Auto Cad and Civil 3D as it applies to Surveying solutions and drafting survey plats.
Tom also does some programming. He is proficient in both Autolisp (used in Auto Cad) and Visual Basic. Both of these he uses to tailor our Auto Cad product to better adapt to our clients needs.
It is our hope that through careful crafting of technology and know-how, Nova Surveys will be successful at providing our clients a better surveying product 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 server 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.
Made in the USAIt's 2:00 a.m. in the morning.. do you know where your survey is??? In some firms the answer may be in China or India. These firms attempt to save money by outsourcing their Cad drafting overseas.
At NoVA Surveys, all the work is done locally, and your survey dollars stay in the local economy.
