A few words about Collett Surveying

Collett Surveying Ltd. is one of the oldest land survey firms in eastern Ontario. Founded in 1881 by Willis Chipman, the company has had several owners including R. F. Mucklestone and M. H. Kaldeway, from whom the current owner Brent Collett purchased the firm in February 1996.The staff and management of Collett Surveying are proud of their company's long history, having a number of survey tools and documents, most of which are well over 150 years old. The company also maintains a large library of old records from several Ontario Land Surveyors which are used to re-establish land boundaries today when applicable. The tools and techniques of the profession have evolved over the years from the use of chains, compasses and quill pens to Global Positioning Systems, Robotic Total Stations, computer work stations and high quality digital plotters. Collett Surveying uses state-of-the-art technology to provide its customers with highly accurate and reliable land surveys.


Brent Collett graduated from the University of Toronto with a B.Sc. in Survey Science in 1985, articled to Ken Wiseman, O.L.S. and received his license in 1988. In 1989, Brent, along with a partner, purchased K.M. Wiseman Ltd. Ken Wiseman retired as an Ontario Land Surveyor in 1992. Brent, after being President of the firm for over 6 years, sold his interest in the company just prior to the purchase of his current company in 1996 from M.H. Kaldeway. Brent was born and raised in the Brockville area thus making him very familiar with the district. Surveyors are called upon for many different functions ranging from the mapping of crime scenes, accident scenes, land boundary disputes, utility routes, lease area determination, site plans, acting as agent for land development and mortgage surveys. Brent's goal is to offer prompt, professional and courteous service at competitive prices.
