Says that comments were “unwarranted”
Big Land Geomatics has criticized the Association of Newfoundland Surveyors (ANLS) for a notice that the Association put in The Labradorian on October 21.
In the notice, ANLS claimed that Big Land Geomatics does not have a Certificate of Authorization and cannot do professional land surveying to the general public.
“…The Association of Newfoundland Land Surveyors wish to advise the Public that Big Land Geomatics does not hold a Certificate of Authorization issued by the Association,” reads the notice. “It therefore is not authorized to provide professional land surveying services to members of the public in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador…”
Today in a press release, Big Land Geomatics CEO Dermot Morris said that his company does construction surveying work, and does not advertise themselves as professional land surveyors. The press release also calls the allegations by the ANLS “unwarranted.”
“…The work performed by Big Land Geomatics is competent, legal and according to government regulations,” states the press release. “Big land Geomatics follows all pertinent regulations regarding its work as required by the province of Newfoundland and Labrador.”
“Big Land Geomatics does not offer professional land surveying services to members of the public. It has never advertised these services to the public.”
“Big Land Geomatics has done nothing that warrants a public warning or notice. Nor has Big Land Geomatics been involved in any illegal activity as suggested by the ANLS.”
A representative of the Association of Newfoundland Surveyors Association said that they couldn’t comment on the situation with Big Land Geomatics, because the matter has been passed along to their lawyer.
