Mason Land Surveys Ltd. was originally founded in April 1971 as Jones Mason Partners, the partnership provided ground control and field verification for aerial surveys throughout the UK. In 1975 Kevan and Annette Mason registered Mason Land Surveys Ltd. (Mason) to supply support to aerial survey companies, as the volume of the aerial survey work declined during the late seventies, Mason diversified its activities within the construction industry, providing civil engineering setting-out, hydrographic survey and dimensional control services.
Mason evolved once more during the late eighties and early nineties applying new technology and diversifying into the fields of Photogrammetry, Computer Aided Design (CAD), Geographical Information Systems (GIS), Ordnance Survey mapping retail, Reprographics Bureau and in-house computer programming.
The company also became engaged in reselling software from Bentley and Intergraph, of which it was a major user.
At this point the company was still headquartered in Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland with a second major office at Faygate, near Horsham, West Sussex. Further offices were added in the late nineties including the opening of an Edinburgh office for mapping retail purposes as well as a major project office at BAA’s Heathrow Airport as Land Survey Framework Partner.
Additional services continued to be added to the already expansive portfolio which now includes Measured Building Surveys, Laser Scanning Surveys and the formation of a subsidiary company and strategic partnerships with key value adding service providers.
Today Mason remains independant and based out of Fife, with two Southern offices allowing the servicing of custom in the South East and Nationwide, from Crawley, West Sussex and on-site at London Heathrow Airport. Some business services are no longer provided in light of emerging overseas markets, however we still invest in new technology and systems for a greater variety of customer base in the UK.
We operate various trading styles and businesses such as; Mason Digital Mapping, Masonmap & Reproteq for different markets.
