Critical Dimensions performs as-built surveys of retail spaces, office space, banks, etc., for many reasons. We work for major retailers and architectural firms traveling to sites all over the country. Once on site, we complete our survey by measuring the space and documenting the existing conditions through notes and photographs. Then complete the drawings in AutoCAD and post to our FTP site for the client to access. Smaller surveys take 2-3 hours at the site and most can be done any time of the day as long as the store is open. There are also quite a few surveys we do on vacant spaces and new construction spaces.

The surveyor would be able to work from home, and just travel around Texas and surrounding states. Our clients pay for all travel expenses, including mileage. The compensation is per the job. Most surveys fall into the 3-4k sq. ft. range for clients such as T-Mobile, Levi's, Bath & Body Works etc. We do perform surveys for clients such as Burlington Coat Factory and Advance Auto Parts, which are larger spaces. The fee to the surveyor is adjusted for larger spaces. The "position" can be what the surveyor wants it to be based on the amount of work they want to do. They can just do one survey a week if they want, or depending on their speed and location, they could do as many as they want to.
