About Us

Franklin_HeadshotKevin Franklin, a licensed Professional Land Surveyor, is proud to announce the 2014 founding of Franklin Surveys. We are dedicated to providing high-quality, high-accuracy, survey services throughout the State of Connecticut.

While working for other private engineering firms, Kevin studied under some of the state’s most highly regarded professionals.  His technical proficiency, as both a surveyor and as a consultant, are evidenced by a proven success record as manager-in-charge of a series of prominent survey projects.

Franklin Survey’s commitment to the practice of land surveying is exemplified by educational outreach to local communities and students of all ages. In addition to private practice, Kevin serves as an adjunct instructor for aspiring young surveyors in a community college and is always willing to bring a prepared seminar for a school classroom or small group. The experience of teaching others to use science and mathematics in a real-life profession is its own reward.
