Professional Land Surveyors
Getting the lay of the land is task #1 for Larry Sullivan and his team of surveyors.
Larry holds more than 38 years of land surveying experience with emphasis on horizontal and vertical control for mapping projects, ALTA/ACSM surveys, boundary and topographic surveys, office calculations, research and writing legal descriptions, and construction staking. As Survey Director for the past 21 years, he manages the CVL Survey Team consisting of several experienced surveyors, five of whom are Registered Land Surveyors, staff surveyors and survey technicians.
Since joining the firm in 1982, he served as a crew chief for seven years and was an assistant survey manager for two years prior to becoming the director in 1991. He is responsible for supervising and coordinating the ALTA/ACSM surveys, boundary and topographic surveys; and communicating with clients, outside agencies, and CVL staff.
One of Larry’s favorite elements of the job is that past survey research now can be found in online public records with careful persistence. Knowing how to search and survey helps CVL complete projects accurately and on time.
When not in the field, Larry is an avid gardener and traveler who hopes to soon take a long look at the British Isles.

Mr. Weed became President of CVL in January 2015, previously holding the title of Executive Vice President. He holds a degree in civil engineering from Northern Arizona University and is a licensed Professional Engineer (PE). His engineering experience includes planning and zoning, preliminary layout, final construction documents, and coordination for residential, commercial, solar, energy, parks, and master-planned communities. His leadership expertise includes navigating government relationships, various regulatory matters, and helping comprehensive teams think creatively to solve problems in ways that benefit both communities and clients.
Mr. Weed has dealt with municipalities across the country and is familiar with development requirements within several metropolitan areas. This includes ways to streamline much of the red tape that can unnecessarily delay projects. One of the greatest aspects of Mr. Weed’s job is helping clients discover CVL’s “harmony trifecta” of design innovation, sustainability and profitability.

The best advice Karl Knapp ever received was that “if one focuses on project goals and deadlines today, he will avoid project issues tomorrow.” That philosophy has guided him throughout his 28 years in engineering design, entitlement processing, construction management, engineering services and consulting firm management.
Karl opened the Colorado offices of CVL in the year 2000 and has since led numerous public works, private water, and land development projects throughout the Western United States. Today as Chief Executive Officer, Karl still follows that sage advice he received years ago to lead CVL staff in all aspects of their relationships with projects, clients, and each other. He believes no task is outside the realm of CVL’s capabilities and that consistent, tireless, enthusiastic and dedicated service is what best serves clients’ needs on a daily basis.
If that kind of work ethic isn’t enough, go ahead and ask him to entertain you, too. Karl is an accomplished signer/songwriter who plays guitar and mandolin, and has about a dozen copyrighted Country songs to his name. Someday soon, you might find him sitting high on a pack horse, exploring the West as he strums along.
