Meet the Survey Team

Let us introduce ourselves – we are Sain Associates’ Survey Team! Surveying is one of the most critical components of any new project. As a team, we give you the information you need to make the best choices for your project.

We offer a wide range of land surveying services. Our portfolio includes work for the private sector, municipal and government agencies, universities, architects, manufacturing plants, and retail and commercial spaces.

Our practice runs efficiently thanks to the expertise of our team leaders:

Gary Pitzing, PLS, serves as Survey Manager for our Huntsville office. He has over 46 years of experience in performing ALTA/ASCM, topographic and boundary surveys, GPS and conventional survey methods, and commercial construction staking. He is a registered professional land surveyor in Alabama and Tennessee, and he is a certified Backflow Preventer technician and tester.

Michael Thomas, PLS, serves as a certified Professional Land Surveyor for Sain’s Birmingham office. He has over 23 years of surveying experience involving residential and commercial projects, construction staking, stakeout, grading of roadways, and performing ALTA/NSPS surveys, topographic and boundary surveys, and right-of-way and easement surveys. Michael is experienced in managing field and office survey personnel, field project management of construction sites, preparing and writing legal descriptions, title and utility research, developing survey plats using MicroStation, AutoCAD and Carlson Software, reviewing survey plats, and office administration.

Alicia Bailey, P.E., serves as Practice Leader for Sain’s Infrastructure and Survey teams. Alicia has over 20 years of engineering experience and is a registered Professional Engineer in Alabama and Florida. Her experience includes roadway and drainage design, construction administration, and various coordination issues on projects for the Alabama Department of Transportation and many municipalities and counties. Alicia is a member of the American Society of Highway Engineers (ASHE) and Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW). She leads Sain’s participation in Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day, a worldwide campaign dedicated to encouraging young ladies to pursue engineering careers.

Some recent projects we have provided Surveying services include:

We enjoy working together as a team and are looking to add a Crew Chief and Assistant Project Surveyor. As a Crew Chief, you will manage a 2-person crew to collect data and stake properties. An Assistant Project Surveyor will prepare maps with topographic features and boundary lines as well as collect data in the field. If you enjoy working outdoors and doing technical tasks, either position is for you! We hope you join our team.
