Cardinal Survey Hard Hat

Who is Cardinal?

Cardinal Survey & Design is a full-service, land-surveying, planning, and 3D imaging company headquartered in Williamsburg, Virginia. The company was founded by George Cunha, a 20-year veteran of the land-surveying industry and a former executive at one of the largest and most respected surveying, planning, and consulting firms in the United States. Cardinal is a proud member of the Virginia Assn. of Surveyors and is SWaM-certified (certificate #686154.)

What makes us different?

All Cardinal employees are highly trained in today’s latest surveying technology, but nothing beats decades of experience. That’s why our owner personally inspects every job site before we begin. To some survey companies this might seem a bit extreme, but when your company has tens of thousands of dollars riding on a project, you’ll definitely appreciate this extra level of service.

Our pre–surveying process.

Pre-surveying enables our team to identify potential site problems before any major work has begun. In some cases we’ve saved our clients thousands of dollars in extra or unnecessary work, not to mention valuable construction time.

Cardinal’s extra attention to detail, combined with our affordable pricing, personalized service, and fast turnaround times, are just a few of the reasons why we've earned the trust of companies such as Ryan Homes, The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, James City County, and many others.
