Our services


Poole Engineering & Surveying, Inc. is intimately familiar with all of the Land Development Regulations for both LeonCounty and the City of Tallahassee.  We are well versed on the requirements of the Comprehensive Plan, City of Tallahassee Zoning Code, Leon County Code of Laws, the Land Development Code, and all other regulatory documents.  We are also familiar with the requirements of the FDOT and the FDEP as they relate to driveway, utility and drainage connections, and stormwater design.  As such, we are able to assess the ability to develop a site as it relates to a particular use.    
Our firm has also developed projects in other areas around Florida including: Lake City, Pensacola, Destin, GadsdenCounty, DeFuniak Springs, and others, as well as in Georgia and Alabama.  We have the ability to adapt to the permitting requirements of any municipality.  This same concept is applied to areas outside of Leon County with other local level regulations, water management district requirements and state rules.


Surveying has been a part of Poole Engineering & Surveying, Inc. since its inception in 1975.  Jay Keri, PSM , Project Surveyor, and Chasen Poole, Survey Project Manager, are responsible for managing our Survey/CAD Technicians and field crew personnel for all projects. Our surveyors have over 50 years experience in all facets of surveying. We use  TopCon robotic total stations, Leica total stations, TopCon GPS units, and Ranger data collectors for gathering field survey information. Our systems are equipped with the CAiCE software as required by FDOT.  Our network of CADD stations are equipped with latest versions of Microstation and Auto CAD engineering and surveying software.  Projects include design surveys for FDOT resurfacing projects on SR 298, SR 289 and SR 173 in Escambia County, bridge survey at Merritts Mill Pond on SR 10, SR 319 / SR 263 design survey in Leon County, Drainage Inventory for Frenchtown Master Drainage Study, Call/Cadiz Street Stormwater Improvements, Meginnis Creek Drainage Ditch and proposed Re-alignment for City of Tallahassee Stormwater Division, and the survey work for WRS in the remediation effort for Cascade Park. We have also completed design surveys for several major apartment complexes, commercial developments and residential subdivisions in the panhandle area.
