Surveying & Mapping
Throughout our history, Land Surveying has been an intrinsic part of our services. JBA has completed large, challenging survey projects throughout the west, including the complete survey of the Chavez Ravine in Los Angeles (the home of the L.A. Dodgers Stadium), a 110-mile boundary retracement survey of Edwards Air Force Base, design and construction surveying for 70 miles of water transmission main lines in the City of Phelan in the High Desert, a hydrographic survey of Los Angeles Harbor for the Department of the Navy, and a two-year surveying contract with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for various projects in California, Nevada, and Arizona.
Recently, JBA’s survey personnel have completed a handful of unique projects, including a GPS survey of a U.S. Marine Corps base in the High Desert of California, project management for the surveying of two airports in Canada, and surveys of various crossing points along the California Aqueduct. Many of these recent projects have also been assisted with relatively new technologies such as Geographic Information Systems (GIS) spatial data analysis and cataloguing.
JBA is also contracted to provide on-call surveying services for various municipalities, including the City of San Bernardino, the City of Loma Linda, and the San Bernardino Unified School District (SBUSD). These contracts have helped solidify the excellent working relationships JBA already enjoys with these municipalities and have established JBA’s reputation as operating some of the most well-respected and competent survey crews in Southern California. This reputation is reflected in our extensive list of repeat residential, industrial/commercial, and public works clients who call upon JBA to provide surveying services for all of their projects.
Our President, Edward J. Bonadiman, P.L.S., is a Licensed California Surveyor and is a Corporate Member and Past President of the California Land Surveyor’s Association (San Bernardino/Riverside Chapter). Mr. Bonadiman is the Manager of our Survey Department.
JBA’s survey personnel are certified with the Mining Safety Hazard Association (MSHA), Number A952. Three eight-hour classes are required to become MSHA Certified. Classes are designed to educate the individuals in job site safety, CPR and specific mine hazard training.
