Jouni Paavola, PLS, is a Professional Land Surveyor licensed in the State of Washington.

Since then, he has lived in Edmonds WA, providing the local community with his expertise.

Jouni and his family continue to run ALS as a small, mom-and-pop operation that seeks to serve many of its existing clients while also taking on new ones on a daily basis. As we grow, we continue to strive to do business with honesty, quality, and efficiency. It is our goal to ensure that every client feels they made the right decision choosing ALS for their surveying needs.
Using up-to-date machinery assists in our providing of quality work in an efficient manner.
Below are just some of the technologies we employ.
Our system utilizes precise survey-grade receivers to establish location points. With GPS, we can receive data without a clear line-of-sight, which enables us to work in challenging, remote, and large sites more efficiently.
Given our size and transitory business model, we cannot justify a physical location, however we often meet with clients near our home base of Edmonds, WA, or over the phone/email.
Our client base is all over northwest Washington. Currently, we are providing our services for both residential and smaller commercial projects in Kitsap, Skagit, Snohomish, King, Pierce, and Chelan counties. This being said, rates may increase for parcels located further from us.
