A Progressive Firm,
Built On Tradition

In 1975, from an office in his home, Jim Freeland founded a small civil engineering and land surveying business that, over the years, would grow into a local company with a national presence.

Today, Freeland & Associates specializes in land surveying and civil engineering solutions. We’ve completed thousands of projects with national companies such as Wal-Mart, Lowe’s Home Improvement Stores, Brinker International Restaurants and Waffle House, as well as countless other projects with notable local companies such as Verdae Development, Burroughs & Chapin Company, Milliken & Company, Greenville Hospital System, and local builder and developer Lazarus Shouse.

Our goal has always been to never rest. We strive to stay on the forefront of technology and innovation to insure the most efficient and timely completion of our clients’ projects.
