HISTORY

Surveyor Antonio E. Melendez first began his Professional Survey Career in 1970, when together with 2 other young friends with Land Surveying and Engineering degrees, began providing small land surveys and housing development engineering site design.

An unprecedented growth on the island's economy and housing construction development during the 1980's moved Mr. Melendez  to direct his efforts into the engineering design field. By the early 1990's, Mr. Melendez was fully dedicated to Housing Site Design projects, and continued his successful career, designing many of the most awarded housing developments of that time, and all disciplines of site design for over 3,000 high-end residential houses. Mr. Melendez  retired in the year 2015. 

In the early 1990's, his then young son, Antonio Melendez, also a Land Surveyor began providing Land Surveying office processing services for Land Surveyors and Engineering firms. By the mid 1990's, Melendez Jr. jumped at the opportunity of the massive amount of infrastructure work available on the island and directed all of his efforts into providing both, office and field survey services, and became exclusively a Land Surveying service provider. By the early 2000's, Mr. Melendez JR. heavily invested in personnel, training  and equipment, acquiring  the latest technology land surveying equipment available at that time. This gave him the opportunity to offer a larger array of new and specialized land survey services. The latest technology, in addition to our manpower helped in drastically shortening our delivery times, which was a key factor  in his growth development. Due to the large success found, Mr. Melendez had the need to create a better operational structure, and in the year 2005 created  Antonio Melendez & Asociados, a Professional Service Corporation.

 

Fast forwarding to today, our firm has grown to become a leading survey office in Puerto Rico,  with an impeccable reputation of offering all types of land surveying services,  including (but not limited to) boundary and topography surveys, large and complex ALTA surveys for high end Real Estate properties  including Shopping Centers, surveys for Hydraulic studies, hydrographics, precise control establishment, geographic information systems, natural gas pipeline studies, sanitary and storm sewer surveys, electric line surveys,  all types of as built surveys, transportation and route surveys, and many others more specialized surveys like deformation and crustal movement monitoring, establishment of High Ordinance Water Marks, surveys of historic sites, surveys of caves, ground truthing surveys for Lidar, conic obstruction surveys and AGIS-FAA compliance surveys for airports, among many others.  We have "in house" Drone (UAV) with RTK Technology,  and  3D Laser Scanning capabilities.
