About Us

Stanley K. Draper, R.L.S., has been in the Surveying Business for 18 years, beginning as an Instrument Man with a local Engineer, then moving to one of the more established Surveying Companies in Nashville for the next couple of years where he excelled as one of the most productive drafters on staff, and eventually, to a Large local Engineering Firm, where he was instrumental in re-starting their Survey Division, which had been dormant for several years, and had been there in responsible charge for the last 13 years. Now, he has taken the next logical step, and opened his own shop. After working for a myriad of local Architects and Engineers, he has special insight in to the needs of these professionals, while also understanding the laymen's point of view.

No Job too Large or Too Small.
