Crones & Associates, Inc. is a family owned business
established by James D. Crones, PLS. James D.
Crones began his career in the surveying field in 1976.
Sixteen years later, in December 1992, James and his
family opened Crones & Associates, Inc. for business.
Our small business began quickly expanding, adding more
staff to meet the increasing demands, and eventually
outgrowing our original "basement" office. As the
company grew, so did the need for a better way of tracking
and of organizing our work, our clients, and our
In 1995, we began developing a new computer program
designed around our own needs. Each of our staff
members contributed their ideas, suggestions, and wish
list of desirable features. In 2000 we hired a
full time computer programmer to develop a professional
version of "Project Tracker Pro". Over time, our
staff has grown, and this program has evolved into an
all-encompassing, full-featured business program.
Crones & Associates advertises in several national
surveying magazines, where we now market and sell
"Project Tracker Pro" to surveyors throughout the United
In 2000, Crones & Associates staff moved into their
newly constructed, company owned, 4000 square foot
building, complete with state of the art computer,
drafting and surveying equipment. Since the
company owns and does not lease any property or
equipment, our overhead costs are very low.
Crones & Associates, Inc. is fully staffed with
experienced Surveyors, Field Crews, Project Managers,
CAD Designers, and Support Personnel. We have
served as consultants and expert witnesses in Court
trials. We have performed all types of
surveying services from the most simple residential
boundary survey to commercial development projects and
even accident scenes. If it can be surveyed, we
can do it.
Since Crones & Associates, Inc. first opened our doors,
we have performed over 6,000 surveys. Although the
majority of our work is in the expanded Puget Sound
area, we have performed surveys throughout the entire
State of Washington. We have completed and filed
more Records of Survey than any other surveying company
in the State. This high volume of work has
provided us with an immense amount of readily available
field data, thereby decreasing research time and costs.
The amount of accumulated data collected over the years,
coupled with our low overhead, allows us to pass the
cost savings on to our clients, while at the same time
providing them with high quality work.
As a family bases business, our staff and employees are
all considered part of our family. We strive to
give our clients the feeling and friendliness of a local family business, while at the same time, providing
