Building a Solid Foundation, One Form at a Time

Foundation Rising.

Building a solid foundation is a critical part of any construction project, and it requires careful planning and execution every step of the way. At GHH, we understand the importance of getting every detail right, from the initial site survey to the final construction stakeout. That’s why we’re proud to be part of a project that is now seeing the foundation rising, one form at a time. 

This project started with a site survey, which allowed us to gather important information about the site’s topography, existing structures, and potential obstacles. Based on the results of the survey, we were able to develop a site plan that met the client’s needs while also complying with all applicable regulations and zoning requirements. We then worked with the client to obtain the necessary permits, ensuring that the project could move forward. 

Now, with the foundation rising, we’re seeing the culmination of all that hard work. The concrete forms are being carefully placed and secured, ensuring that the foundation wall will be strong and stable for years to come. As the foundation takes shape, we’re reminded of the importance of attention to detail and precision in every aspect of the construction process. 

At GHH, we take pride in our ability to deliver high-quality surveying and civil engineering services that help our clients achieve their goals. Whether we’re surveying a site, developing a site plan, or providing construction stakeout services, we bring the same level of professionalism and expertise to every project. As we continue to work on this project and watch the foundation rise, we’re excited to see the results of our hard work and dedication taking shape.

The Importance of a Property Encroachment

Property EncroachmentsIf you’ve recently purchased a home or a piece of land, congratulations! However, don’t forget owning property in Connecticut can be a full time job within itself. There are a number of legal issues that the owner will have to deal with once they receive their deed agreement. Among those, property encroachment is a critical issue, which could potentially lead to a legal dispute between the neighbours or the city council.

In the case that you aren’t familiar, a property encroachment refers to the intrusion on another person’s property, intentional or unintentional, and can be a common issue among property owners. If you have an encroachment in your property deed, it might be necessary to talk to a professional engineering & surveying company to avoid any misunderstandings.

Adverse Possession Law: Everything You Need to Know


It is easy to make mistakes when it comes to establishing property boundaries.  In many instances, homeowners may install fences or build structures that actually invade their neighbors’ property.  In these cases, legal action may occur.  However, if the encroachment is left unaddressed for a certain period of time, the encroaching homeowner may gain the rights to that land.

What is Adverse Possession Law?

Adverse possession is a real estate or property law where ownership of another person’s land can be acquired through possessing or using the property for a particular period of time. In Connecticut, one must have possessed the land for 15 years and used it openly and without any interruption to qualify for adverse possession of the land.

This law protects someone who may have used a particular land for an extensive period of time from being evicted by the owner who later uncovers a technical fault concerning his or her land’s original boundaries. For example, a structure, footpath, driveway, or fence may have been wrongly placed past its proper boundary. When the owner of the property whose land has been trespassed notices the default after 15 years in Connecticut, he or she may lose the rights to claim back the encroached land.
