Mr. Attaway is Chief of the Surveying Department of Cranston Engineering Group, P.C., having taken over that role in 1984. He has been a surveying supervisor with the company since 1970 and has compiled an impressive record of field experience and training as a land surveyor. He is thoroughly qualified in all aspects of land and route surveying, with specialized experience in using the latest technology to increase productivity and efficiency of the field and office operations.

Mr. Attaway has been responsible for a wide variety of surveys, including horizontal and vertical control, route location, topographic mapping, construction layout, GPS surveys, hydrographic measurements, geodetic techniques, quantity measurements and boundary surveys. He is a recognized authority on technical standards for land surveying in Georgia and is often called on to present classes on this subject through his involvement in the leadership of the Surveying and Mapping Society of Georgia.

Mr. Attaway strives to produce land surveys that represent title lines on good field methods on the ground, thorough studies of realty records, and precise platting in the office.
