G. Scott Carter moved to Nashville from Chattanooga, Tennessee in February of 2016. While living in Chattanooga and working on survey crews, a 10+ year apprenticeship under the watchful eyes and mentoring of some of the southeast's most well respected professional land surveyors was completed.
Carter obtained his license to practice land surveying from the State of Tennessee in February of 2007. He continued on as the director of surveys for a very successful firm in Chattanooga that specialized in high liability construction layout and high definition 3D laser scanning. During this time, he worked alongside the State of Tennessee on various local roadway improvement projects; the State of Tennessee Parks service on a historic survey of a 1,388 acre, 19 mile land acquisition for the Cumberland Trail that required living in remote mountain areas during the winter of 2010. Other projects and types of surveys include, national park surveys, state park and green way surveys, historical preservation surveys and laser scans, industrial, manufacturing plant surveys & scans, commercial ALTA/NSPS surveys, large and remote acreage boundary line surveys, topographic, aerial, hydrographic surveys, as-built surveys.
In August of 2014, Carter opened and ran his own successful firm in Chattanooga until he got married and moved to Nashville, where he currently resides and works for the firm as a professional land surveyor for the Commercial Surveys Department.
