He worked his way up the ranks quickly and in 2006 became a General Manager. Dan has worked on all types of projects including residential developments, apartment complexes and large commercial properties. Being General Manager has allowed him to learn the ins and out of the business side of land surveying along with growing great relationships with clients and employees. In January of 2016, Dan decided to use his experience to run his own company. He started out with 5 employees and has grown Eagle Surveying to over 30 employees in 6 years. He is a very hands on owner who takes pride in his work and it shows in the company that he created and his great team of employees.

Mason Decker, General Manager
Mason began surveying out of high school, starting as a helper in the field. At the time, thinking it would only be a summer job, he found that he had a passion for Surveying and continued his work as a full-time surveyor and student. Mason’s hard work and dedication led him to become a Crew Chief. He eventually found himself working as a drafting technician in the office. With his experience in the field and office, he stepped up to fill the role of field coordinator and ultimately General Manager. Now he uses his experiences and communication skills to oversee the daily operations of Eagle Surveying by working with clients and team members to ensure that their needs are met in a timely and accurate manner.

Scott Ammons, Registered Professional Land Surveyor

Scott F. Ammons has more than 30 years of professional land surveying experience including retracing original land surveys, boundary analysis, topographic mapping, creation of subdivisions, infrastructure layout and utility corridor easements. Mr. Ammons began his career in 1991 and soon after enrolled in the College of Engineering at Southern Illinois University. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in 1996 and graduated Cum Laude.

Throughout the late 1990’s Mr. Ammons was heavily involved in major residential and commercial land development. Also during this time, he worked on many projects with AT&T establishing easement rights for fiber optic technology infrastructure and the erection of cellular towers across the State of Illinois.

In the early 2000’s Mr. Ammons launched SFA Land Surveying and successfully operated a land surveying business specializing in residential and commercial construction services. His efforts were concentrated in providing solid boundary and topography data to engineering firms and assisted multiple custom home builders with the documents necessary to facilitate the construction of hundreds of new homes across the Chicagoland area.

More recently Mr. Ammons has acquired well rounded civil design experience by preparing construction plans for several Walmart stores across the southeastern United States and an ICE Prison facility in Alvarado, Texas. While in Texas, Mr. Ammons has retraced multiple properties encompassing hundreds of acres, some of which were over one thousand acres. Many of these retracements involved the discovery of land title “gaps” and “overlaps” that were resolved successfully by providing new written land descriptions and coordinating with title companies and attorneys, to get together with the owners of interest and settle the erroneous land claims in a proper, professional manner, that will stand up to the test of time.

Given his sharp eye for detail, diligent effort for any given task and a thorough and well-rounded survey/design background, Mr. Ammons has the experience and professional spirit to bring your next project to fruition.
