What is in a name?

What does Terminus even mean?

Terminus was the name of the Roman god who protected boundary corners. At Terminus we take your property rights seriously. With the cost of real estate rising every day every inch matters. We do not cut corners, we do not "find them & flag them" from a humble 50'x100' mid century homesite to a miles long energy corridor project, we verify everything.  

Local Matters.

Terminus was also the original name for Atlanta. The name came from being the end of the Western & Atlantic railroad line. Today Terminus proudly works with a variety of local vendors to source its survey equipment and supplies. We work local, not national dealer chains, for our vehicle purchases. By being a remote based business we also are doing our part to reduce Atlanta traffic.
