Scott Edwards, PLS
Scott has never been one to accept the status quo. For as long as he can remember, he has always pursued a philosophy of continual learning. Scott is Professional Land Surveyor licensed in Washington (2004) and Oregon (2015). He is also a Certified Federal Surveyor (2012). However, his interests are not limited to surveying. Scott also holds an MBA from City University and a Certificate in Geographic Information Systems from the University of Washington. Scott’s most recent accomplishment is earning a FAA Part 107 – Remote Pilot Certificate.
Scott’s interest in land surveying came at a young age. His grandfather was a prominent surveyor in Minnesota and Wisconsin, providing Scott with the inspiration to choose a career in surveying. Scott took the first step in his vocation in 1995, enrolling as a student in the land survey program at Renton Technical College. Following graduation, he spent seven years as a field crew team member and as an office technician. At this point, Scott earned his first Professional Land Surveyor license and became a project manager serving multiple public and private sector clients.
Scott has boundary, topographic, utility, ALTA Land Title Survey, subdivision, lot boundary adjustment, condominium, corridor, construction, and monitoring survey expertise, plus he has established multiple control networks.
Finally, Scott feels it is important to give back to the professional community that has always been there for him and provided him with support along his chosen career path. He is a past President and current active member of the North Puget Sound Chapter of the Land Surveyors’ Association of Washington and is currently the Chairperson for the Advisory Committee for the Land Survey/Geospatial Science program at Renton Technical College.
“I enjoy the landscapes and cultural diversity found all over the Pacific Northwest. I love to get off the beaten path and explore the backcountry and small towns that can be found throughout this magnificent area. Getting out by motorcycle, car, bicycle, or just using my own two feet makes for a great day. The spectacular scenery of this area can be absolutely awe-inspiring and many of the people one encounters have the most incredible stories on how they live their lives. Plus, it is always fun to talk with people who have ties to the land. The history they share and their insights on life make each of these small adventures unforgettable. To me, the journey is the destination.”
