#tbt On April 26, 1999, Origin Design (formerly IIW) became an ESOP. Co-founders Carl Schoenhard & Dennis Waugh (pictured) originally enacted the ESOP as a way to secure the future of the company following Schoenhard's retirement. Now over 20 years later, Origin Design is 100% employee owned.
With our expertise and resources, we are able to customize our project delivery scope and provide various types of specialized surveys to the clients and communities we serve.
One type of specialized survey we perform involves coordination with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Our clients often depend on us to conduct surveys required to receive a FEMA Elevation Certificate.
These federal certificates show the proper placement of a property in relation to base-flood elevation to assist in properly rating properties for flood insurance.
Types of specialized surveys.
- Airport surveys (FAA badged staff)
- Control surveys for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) services
- FEMA flood elevation certificates
- FEMA letter of map amendments (LOMA)
- FEMA flood hazard area interpretation
- Railroad surveys (eRailSafe certified staff)
