WE ARE Design Works Surveys


Design Works Surveys not only brings you top surveying talent, but we work with you to ensure you’re fully informed and updated throughout the project. The customer experience is just as important to us as the survey itself, and we’ve had much practice doing just that. Our senior principals bring over 40 years of survey experience; that’s four decades of satisfying clients.


Our senior team, lead by Haydar Al Dahhan, P.Eng. and Matthew Barnfield, supported by John Lehners, P.Eng., A.L.S., launched Design Works Surveys in 2014. Over the last half of this decade, we’ve created a unique brand of survey services that have evolved with the global economy. Thanks to the strength of our partner network, we’re able to ensure we provide the latest surveying solutions for your project.
