Professional Land Surveyors for Ventura County & Surrounding Areas

I’m Gary Salmen, LS.  Welcome to my website.

I founded GP Salmen & Associates in 1990 so that I could practice Land Surveying cost-effectively with a strong emphasis on service.

25 years later I and my staff, which now includes my son Travis, are continuing to do exactly that. We provide quality land surveys of many kinds, including boundary surveys, topographic maps, ALTA (ALTA/ACSM Land Title) surveys, FEMA certifications, and construction surveys, all quickly and all cost effectively, throughout Ventura County and neighboring communities, from Calabasas to Camarillo, Ojai to Oxnard, in Simi Valley, Thousand Oaks, and Malibu.

Another forte of GP Salmen & Associates is our ability to process projects smoothly through the local City and County Agencies, including Records of Surveys, Lot Line Adjustments, Certificates of Compliance, and Parcel Maps.  That is because, for many years, I was a contract consultant to both the City of Ventura and the Ventura County Surveyor’s Office, plan checking the work of my fellow land surveyors.

At GP Salmen & Associates our focus is helping you decide precisely what your land surveying needs are.  We want to satisfy  all of your land surveying needs, no more and no less, so that all of your land survey needs are met completely the first time, with minimum cost.

We help you determine your project’s optimal scope of work; then we make hard and fast commitments as to scope of work and timing; then we keep those commitments.

Many Ventura County Real Estate and Architectural professionals, Developers and Builders, and Property Owners will attest to the fact that we are continuing to provide them with the best Land Surveying service available.  That is exactly what I set out to do when I founded GP Salmen & Associates 25 years ago, and continue to do today.

I look forward to hearing from you about your land surveying needs.
