Partner, Principal Surveyor

Ed has over 28 years of experience in Land Surveying and Land Development and has been involved in a myriad of projects ranging in size from single residential house lots to one hundred acre plus surveys.  He is capable of taking projects from the initial research stage on through fieldwork, calculations, design and on to completion.

He prides himself in working with developers and contactors and understanding the importance of a site development schedule and makes sure to have personnel on site when promised. He considers land surveying to be a key component in the site development process, from the initial planning stage and existing conditions survey, on to construction support staking, be it column lines, anchor bolts or utilities and grading through to the site as-built plans. Ed has experience with the Massachusetts Land Court having designed multiple Land Court Subdivisions and is also familiar with the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, having prepared numerous surveys for them as well.

Prior to partnering up with Greg Driscoll to form Jacobs Driscoll Engineering, Ed worked for J.K. Holmgren Engineering, Inc. in Brockton, MA holding the position of Survey Department Manager and Vice President.
