Who we are

Erick Bennett and David Panfil founded Bennett-Panfil, Inc. (BPI) in 2021. In 2022, BPI acquired the assets of Strayer Surveying & Mapping. Strayer Surveying was established in 1987 as Leslie, Hicks, Strayer and Associates, Inc. before being renamed to Strayer Surveying and Mapping, Inc. in 1995, and it operated here in Venice until the asset purchase in 2022.

Land Development Services

All land development starts with a survey. From the initial boundary survey to topographic design surveys, easements, and specific purpose surveys, let us help get your project to the finish line with a quality product you can trust.

Construction Survey Support

BPI can provide construction lay-out, as-builts, and sketch & descriptions throughout the construction process to help your project run smoothly right to the end.

Hydrographic & Coastal Surveys

The staff at BPI has years of experience providing accurate surveys all along the coast and bays of Sarasota, Manatee and Charlotte Counties. We can prepare submerged land leases, hydrographic surveys, benthic (seagrass) surveys, riparian line surveys, Tidal Water Boundary surveys, and Coastal Construction Control Line (CCCL) Surveys.
