A LEGACY OF DEPENDABILITY
We bring expertise and passion to every project.
Throughout the past three decades, Landtech has managed and participated in some of the most recognizable projects in Texas including the Texas Border Fence, Spaceport, and Sam Houston Tollway Ship Channel Bridge Replacement. On every project we strive to earn and retain the respect of our local leaders, clients, and colleagues through timely, accurate, and quality surveying services. We are licensed to practice surveying in Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and Arkansas.
Investing in our people makes all the difference.
Our people and their dedication are the backbone of our success. Since the earliest days our firm has been rooted in our core values: integrity, reliability, trust, and partnership. More than just words, our company culture is centered around living these ideals internally as a team and with our customers. Our leadership invests and fosters each employee’s passion for what they do, which allows them to deliver the best client experience. More Surveyors have earned their Registered Professional Land Surveyor license while under Landtech’s employment than other firms across the state.

A Proud History
An Unlikely Pair
The downturn of Houston’s economy in the mid 1980’s provided an opportunity for a Chinese immigrant with a background in land surveying and a former college football player with a degree in civil engineering to harness their entrepreneurial spirit. Paul Kwan, RPLS and Thomas Staudt, PE, respectively, developed the vision for Landtech Consultants, Inc.
The Early Days
On June 30, 1985, Landtech opened shop with a truck load of used furniture and two survey vehicles – an El Camino with three coats of paint and a Chevy pickup with no air conditioning. They landed their first project within weeks…for which they were never paid. Remaining optimistic, they eventually secured paying projects: surveys of over 200 7-Eleven stores for The Southland Corporation, and the design of Maxey Road Pump Stations for the City of Houston. Eight months after opening, they hired their first two full-time employees both of which are still employees of Landtech today.
In 2020, Landtech’s ownership was restructured when the civil engineering division was acquired. Paul remains the sole owner of Landtech, Inc. with the primary service focus on land surveying. We are proud of the Landtech Legacy found in our commitment to our core values. Our future is your future as we continue to support visionary infrastructure for our community.
