Provincial Consultants

Through years of experience as Provincial Consultants for Canadian National Railways, the Lloyd & Purcell team has developed and introduced a consultation branch to its list of elite services.  We recognize the busy and complex schedules of our larger, more provincial wide clients and have initiated this division to assist. We also recognize the financial and professional influences of long travel and unfamiliar land survey territories within the vast province of Ontario.

As consultants we will ensure that your returns are consistent with our quality for you and your consultants to deal with.

Our Consulting Service offers the following process:

  • Meet with our client and any of their various other consultants to develop a complete understanding of the purpose of the project and advise as to the professional survey needs,  accuracy's,  timelines and appearance of the returns necessary to move the project forward.
  • Develop and prepare a Request for Proposal document and:
    • Circulate Request for Proposal packages to professional survey companies in the project vicinity with returns submitted to Lloyd & Purcell.
    • Evaluate and grade each proposal to ensure a consistent product is being provided.
    • Submit recommendation to the client for review and award of contract.
  • Set up file and initiate correspondence with awarded professional.
  • Monitor project timelines, deadlines, and appearance and report results to the client at intervals to be established.
  • Ensure product supplied  is exactly what the proposal promised and authorize final payment.

How does our Consultant Service Benefit You?
