Our Team

The firm was established by A.C. Loach, B.C.L.S. in 1953 and has gradually expanded to its present size - consisting of three professional land surveyors, and a staff of 17 people.

HWM has recently purchased the assets of Chapman Land Surveying Ltd. We are now the proud owners of Chapman Land Surveying’s records, data and files. In addition, we are excited to have the staff from Chapman join our team.
