Your Local Land Surveyors Serving Buffalo, Amherst, Orchard Park, NY & the Surrounding WNY Region

Who we are

WM Schutt is a locally owned multi-disciplined engineering and land surveying corporation. Formed in 1990 by William Schutt. P.E. and Edward VanKuren, P.L.S. WSA is well know for client-focused civil engineering, land surveying, project management and construction support services. We are proud to be celebrating our 31st anniversary in 2021. 


In 2000, WSA acquired the survey division of the former Krehbiel Associates (of Tonawanda, NY) and thereby absorbed a valuable library of WNY survey records dating back to 1928. This acquisition significantly enhanced our data base and resource files in WNY land surveying community. In 2002 WSA moved to a historically significant (cira 1890) three-story masonry building in the Village of Lancaster, NY. In 2012 we completed exterior renovations under strict NYSOPRHP guidelines and our building has since been named to the State and National Register of Historical Places. 


Our core values of QUALITY, SERVICE and TEAMWORK provide the foundation of our services to our clients and communities. We strongly believe it is important to prepare drawings and specifications that accurately convey all aspects of a project and leave little interpretation for future bidders.  


Since our establishment in 1990, the project team at WM Schutt & Associates has strived to provide the highest-quality solutions to each of our clients. We specialize in civil engineering, land surveying, construction engineering, and land development services within a framework of strict quality and cost control. Our entire staff reports to work at our one office in Lancaster, NY. Our organizational structure is built on strong project management principals with management layers intentionally minimized for efficiency and effectiveness. We tailor our project teams to each client, with key personnel responsible to execute each project through every phase of work. This ensures effective communication, continuity, efficiency, and a clear follow through to achieve the desired project objectives.
