About Us

GeoWay Surveys and Brown Surveys were already among the oldest locally owned and operated land survey companies in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador when they formed a partnership in 1998. Today, Brown & Way Surveys Ltd. continues to provide the same high-quality work while taking advantage of new technologies to expand our available products.
