The firm became Duane Hartman & Associates, Inc. (DHA) in 1993 when Duane Hartman, PLS, acquired the assets and records of Permit/Engineering, Inc. (P/E), consulting engineers, in Bellevue, Washington. Duane, one of the founding partners of P/E, reorganized the firm and moved the assets to new offices in the Woodinville West Business Park by the Sammamish River in Woodinville, Washington. DHA opened its new doors to clientele seeking quality surveying and mapping services. The former engineering services were discontinued to give full attention to the conduct of surveying.DHA’s staff includes a licensed, professional land surveyor, CAD technicians, field technicians and an office/financial manager. The office facilities include computers loaded with software that includes Softdesk Civil/Survey and all versions of AutoCAD Civil 3D, Trimble GPS and a variety of special data reduction adjustment and coordinate conversion software. Final products are plotted on a HP color plotter (E size) and delivered electronically via any type of media of the client’s choice. View our Staff Qualifications.
