Kevin Hewins, P.L.S.
Profile & Background
Kevin manages the Survey Department at MCR Engineering. He has over 34 years of experience in boundary surveys, topographic surveys, control, and construction staking.
Kevin is a true surveyor in every sense of the word. He enjoys being outdoors, researching deeds and monuments, finding property corners and construction staking. Kevin considers the survey crews an extension of our engineering department. As a result, he emphasizes the importance of communication between field and office while gathering topographic information or setting stakes during construction. He extends this team-oriented approach to the contractors as well and is known for maintaining good relationships that avoid conflicts and disagreements that can cost the project time and money.
Bureau of Land Management - Kevin spent six years with the BLM, retracing the original surveys of the old west, interpreting original field notes, re-establishing section corners of the original sectionalized land in the state of California, and establishing boundaries between public and private land.
Army Corps of Engineers - Kevin worked for the Corps for three years, surveying military installations, traveling the western United States monitoring earthen and concrete dams for movement using first and second order surveying practices, and performing hydrographic surveys along the Sacramento River for bank protection and levee stability.
Trimble Navigation - Kevin’s extensive experience in Global Positioning System Surveying practices is the result of completing an intense training program with Trimble Navigation (the leading GPS equipment manufacturer in the U.S.), and traveling the country teaching other surveyors how to use GPS in their surveying practices to improve efficiency.
