Engineering & Surveying

The engineering and surveying department of O’C&L has extensive experience in providing site development to a broad range of private and public sector clients throughout the greater suburban Maryland area. From single lot residential feasibility studies, to complete engineering design and permitting services for commercial, governmental, and industrial sites, O’Connell & Lawrence’s staff of registered engineers and construction consultants has the experience and capabilities to help our clients achieve their development goals.

O’C&L has also provided surveying services in support of our engineering design services and hundreds of other clients since the firm’s inception. Many of our projects are comprehensive in scope, requiring a broad range of surveying skills. O’Connell & Lawrence has invested in state-of-the-art field surveying equipment including total stations and reflectorless total stations, GPS units, and other data collectors to obtain field data for direct "field-to-finish" processing with our office computers using AutoCAD 2015, Carlson Survey, or Point Cloud. Our trained personnel are experienced in conducting GPS and conventional surveys and processing field data, as well as developing maps, plans, and reports tailored to the client’s specific needs.
