Founded in 1993 as the Portland branch of Nadeau & Lodge, Inc., Nadeau Land Surveys is proud of its strong reputation of quality service while providing a diversified range of professional land surveying, GPS/GIS mapping, and floodplain services, underground utility location, and continuing education.

Our team consists of five licensed State of Maine Professional Land Surveyors (#2124, #2370, #2446, #2189, and #1191) with a combined total of nearly 150 years of licensed survey experience, survey support staff, and an Education Coordinator.
