Quality, efficient, down-to-earth Surveying
We started Jack Atkinson Surveying with the aim of providing high quality surveying services throughout Canberra, the Snowy Mountains & NSW South Coast.
First launched in 2019, it was our dream that the business would one day provide us with full-time employment. And in 2021, that dream became a reality. After more than 15 years surveying experience and extra study and up-skilling to qualify as a Registered Surveyor, the time was right to build a family business around Jack’s broad skillset. With a young family to consider, we wanted to create a work and family life balance so we can spend our time wisely.
About Jack Atkinson
Registered Surveyor & Founder
Jack is the Registered Surveyor who completes all surveying services, both in the field and in the office. Jack has more than 15 years industry experience and completed his Bachelor of Spatial Science through the university of Southern Queensland while he was working full time on the job. Jack was registered with the Board of Surveyors in 2019 and is a Registered Surveyor in both NSW and ACT.
With a friendly, easy-going manner, Jack explains everything involved in the surveying process so that it’s easy to understand. Clients know exactly what’s required and how they can achieve their plans. Whether the project involves building a house, surveying land for a new subdivision or constructing a new road, Jack advises clients every step of the way to set them up for success.
When he’s not at work, Jack loves playing squash, camping, spending time with his family and takes any opportunity he can to build something.

About Glen Shennan
Project Surveyor & Chief Remote UAV Pilot
Glen is fascinated by drones and geo-spatial data (information about objects or features on the surface of the earth). After moving to Cooma in 2020, Glen accidentally discovered a way to combine his background in physics with flying drones in his role as a Project Surveyor & UAV Pilot. After working in the commercial solar power industry, luckily for us Glen loves the cold, especially if he gets to explore the Snowy Mountains region on his mountain bike.
Glen has a Masters in GIS and Remote Sensing from Charles Sturt University. When he’s not developing new ways to serve our clients with aerial surveying, geospatial and remote sensing services at JAS, he’s probably walking his cute cocker spaniel puppy George.
About Guy Whyman
Guy has the genuine, salt–of–the–earth heart of a farmer and is originally from Bega on the South Coast of NSW. For the last 16 years he’s been employed by Cooma Monaro Shire Council and before that, he worked in the wool industry as a shearer. As a Project Surveyor, Guy comes to JAS with a wealth of life experience, a Cert IV in Local Government Operations and a Cert IV in Surveying. When he’s not at work, Guy enjoys working with horse and dogs, either coaching his son in show jumping or camp drafting.
About Shakeela Saeed
Shakeela is the first point of contact you’ll have when you get in touch. As our Office Manager, Shakeela manages all incoming enquiries and supports the rest of the team in managing each project. Originally from Lahore in Pakistan and with a background in finance and marketing, Shakeela has a BBA Hons from the Lahore School of Economics.
