Paul Brautigam Marks 30 Years, 3,500 Properties Surveyed
Modifying the credo of another long-established organization, through rain, snow, sleet, searing temperatures, cross traffic, challenging topography, and probably an occasional pesky wasp nest, Paul Brautigam and his staff at Brautigam Land Surveyors PC have been delivering for clients across Newtown and the region, amassing a total of 3,500-plus projects completed in 30 years.
More recently, Brautigam Land Surveyors — a full-service surveying firm based in Newtown — has announced it is growing after acquiring the assets of Surveying Associates, a well-established, half-century-old Danbury surveying firm operated by Paul M. Fagan, Sr, since 1969.
In addition to Mr Fagan’s inventory of surveying files going back 50-plus years, Mr Brautigam said in a release that acquired assets also include surveying files of John Green, Douglas Watson, GRT Surveyors, and older records of the Sydney A. Rapp and Sydney Rapp, Jr’s office compiled before 2005.
“I am very excited, not only to be able to serve my own clients, but with this acquisition, I am able to serve hundreds more property owners all over Fairfield, Litchfield, and New Haven Counties with the efficiency which comes from having this very important background material,” Mr Brautigam said. It is a database which I can access for anyone who needs a survey”
Paul Brautigam is also in a celebratory mood for another reason.
“I started my own surveying practice 30 years ago in February 1989,” he said. “I love the profession of surveying, and after 30 years, I look forward to an expanded practice which I hope to continue indefinitely.”
Brautigam Land Surveyors, online at brautigamland.com, specializes in residential, commercial, and municipal surveying for homeowners, contractors, developers, attorneys, real estate agencies, banks, and towns.
The company is dedicated to providing personal services and delivering the necessary information professionally and on time.
A 1978 graduate of Paul Smith’s College in New York, with a surveying major and forestry minor, Mr Brautigam uses his extensive knowledge of topography and plant life and his varied experience in construction, landscape design, real estate development, and sales to provide a broad-ranging view to site development and landscape design projects.
Through his ongoing education and training in the legal aspects of land surveying and the preparation of legally defensible maps, along with being a licensed realtor, Mr Brautigam has the experience to provide accurate documentation to help resolve disputes regarding property boundaries and insurance claims.
His long-established business philosophy is to keep the company on the cutting edge of surveying technology. Mr Brautigam also believes that personal service, impeccable accuracy, and increased productivity are not incompatible.
The company will help its clients fill their surveying needs using a range of technologies designed specifically to suit any particular project.
“Looking back at the success I have achieved, with over 1,600 properties surveyed in Newtown alone, we owe many of our accomplishments to the embracing nature of this community.”
Not only in Newtown, but over the span of his career, Mr Brautigam said he has surveyed more than 3,500 properties in Fairfield, Litchfield, and New Haven Counties.
“This is one reason that having Paul Fagan’s survey files are a major step forward. Our practices perfectly complement each other,” Mr Brautigam added.
Mr Brautigam is a lifelong resident of Fairfield County.
He said he chose to live in and open his practice in Newtown because of the quality of life here, its schools, and the fact that Newtown has kept a small town charm through years of population and business growth.
