  1. John , its on the side. I don't stamp it, just design and hand off. No overhead. I can do a typical small subdivision of say half dozen lots in 45-55 hrs. And have been charging flat rate of $2000-$3000 for the last 10 yrs. Not sure if I'm keeping up with the times with that rate (roughly $50/hr) or if it matters that I received a license last year (even though 80% of jobs I'm not stamping).
  2. Basic subdivision design. PLS provides all survey. Prop line, contours, monuments , resource areas, etc. I do the layout, road design, drain design, details, etc more or less the entire plan set for submission for a Definitive Subdivision. What would a fair price be for my engineering services for a 4-6 lot subdivision. Just for design and draft. Meeting and such would be additional. Cheers!
  3. Is it ok to place lawn signs on project properties for advertising purposes?
  4. Ok guys. Say client hires me to design a new structure. Governing authorities require proposed structure to existing property line offsets to be shown on plan. The property is existing and I want to propose a new structure on it. Do I need to sub contract a surveyor to re survey the property that is set forth in the recorded plans/deeds? Can I perform an incidental survey on my own? There are plenty of property boundries in the area where I can easily locate the PL. After I perform this incidental survey can I show offsets to the property lines, and note on the plan "this plan is not used to determine property lines" What does state of MA mean by "may also perform land surveying incidental to his or her engineering work relative to locating or relocating any of the Fixed‑works embraced within the practice of civil engineering"? Is this what I am essentially doing?
  5. I used das but def didn't read the book. Do practice problems and use the book to help you solve/understand the principles.
  6. Thanks for the reply Kevo. So say the property lines have been established. Say I want to propose a new septic. Can I show lot lines I have surveyed from a deed or older recorded plan to show my offsets? Or do the lines need to be reestablished by a PLS?
  7. Is this one of the new changes to 250cmr from November 2013? I just received my license so am not 100% familiar with the pre 2013 250 cmr. "A Professional Engineer qualified in the Branch of civil engineering may also perform land surveying incidental to his or her engineering work relative to locating or relocating any of the Fixed‑works embraced within the practice of civil engineering, but excluding the determination of property lines." Does that mean that MA Engineers can no longer call out proposed structure offsets to property lines? I know historically it is usual for us engineers to call out offsets to proposed residential foundations, septics, etc and just write a note that says "this plan is not used to determine property lines" or something to that effect.
  8. Im in MA Pcshq has a app# and state id# They sent me a letter saying app# is not lic# and to wait until lic# appears on state board website Anyone that has been notified of actual lic# is it the same as your state id#??
