Greg skinner

Years of experience: 58
Idaho PLS #3627

Greg began his surveying career as an engineering aide for the California Department of Water Resources in 1966. After three years of learning the basics, he moved to Idaho and worked a couple of years in municipal type of surveying for the City of Boise and the Ada County Highway District.

Several years of working in the private sector for JUB Engineering and CH2M-Hill doing boundary surveys, subdivision layout, construction staking and related tasks, eventually led to Greg obtaining a professional surveyor license in 1978.

He then opened his own land surveying business in 1982 in Middleton and worked out of his home for several years.  The business went through a couple transformations before finally becoming Skinner Land Survey Co. Inc. in 1997.

He moved to Grangeville, Idaho in 2003, where he acquired a small land surveying business. He still lives there and operates that business. Greg has developed a proven method for getting surveys done quickly, but accurately. His goal has always been to provide excellent service at a reasonable cost.

In his free time Greg likes to re-load ammo, hunt and shoot his long bow.

He is the contact for surveys needed in North Central Idaho.
