“Culhig came highly recommended to NACAP by a civil contractor working in the Agnew area.  I have found the guys to be highly experienced and professional in providing survey and engineering support. Their equipment is the best you can get and they know how to operate it! They are true engineering surveyors. I would not hesitate in engaging Culhig again on any NACAP project in the future.”
