Surveying


MRA uses the most recent technology to provide a solid foundation of accurate survey data. 

With eight registered land surveyors, three field supervisors, four survey CADD technicians, and 14 survey crews, MRA is committed to the highest standard in the professional practice of land surveying. This commitment helps to ensure a sound foundation of accurate survey data, giving MRA’s design, engineering work, and construction stakeout the precision required.

This seven-acre, LEED Silver, 365-unit luxury rental apartment community incorporates an attached six-story, 411-car parking structure, which allows residents to park and live on the same level of the building. MRA surveyors met with the architect and general contractor to determine how this complicated building would be staked out to ensure that all annexes of this unusual building joined together properly. MRA also provided as-built surveys.

This project has received several awards including: 2012 Maryland Multi-Housing Association (MMHA), Stellar Elevator Community: $1,200 and Up “Gold Award”; 2012 Delta Associates 16th Annual Apartment & Condominium Industry Awards for Excellence, Best Baltimore Apartment Community Award Winner; 2012 Great American Living Awards (GALA), Best Design & Architecture, Multi-Family New Construction, 5 stories and Under “Grand Award.”
