Our History

Worley Surveying was founded in 1969 by Don Worley to provide the professional surveying services needed by municipalities, businesses and individuals in Hanover, PA and surrounding Pennsylvania and Maryland counties. In 1977 Don purchased the remaining archives of J.H. Rife when Mr. Rife, a Licensed Surveyor and Engineer working in Maryland and Pennsylvania, was ready to retire. Mr. Rife had previously destroyed all files dating before January 1, 1960. HLS still maintains most of the original Rife plan files dating from 1960 as well as all Worley Surveying files.
In 1996, Kristin and Doug Barmoy, owners of Maryland Land Design, Inc. began working closely with the staff at Worley Surveying. The Barmoys and their staff provided the engineering design services needed to complement Don’s surveying and produce a complete land development service for Worley Surveying and Maryland Land Design, Inc. clients. The two companies started feeling like one larger company with both a Maryland and a Pennsylvania office. In 1998, Don approached the Barmoys and asked if they would consider taking over his company so that he could begin the path to retirement. It was a natural fit, so in May 2000, Kristin and Doug incorporated Hanover Land Services, Inc. to provide surveying and engineering services.
Worley Surveying remained a trade name for Hanover Land Services, Inc. for about five more years until Don was ready for full retirement.
To most outsiders, and even our employees, by 2005, Maryland Land Design, Inc. and Hanover Land Services, Inc. functioned as a single company. At year-end 2013, Maryland Land Design, Inc. merged with Hanover Land Services, Inc.
In 2015, Keith Heindel, LS, owner of Professional Surveys, LLC, began a partnership with Hanover Land Services, Inc. He became Surveyor-In-Charge of Maryland projects all while continuing to serve his Professional Surveys, LLC, clients. Keith was such a good fit with the Hanover Land Services, Inc. values and culture that he and the Barmoys made the decision to merge the two companies to better serve their Maryland and Pennsylvania based clients. Effective July 1, 2017, Keith became Vice President of Hanover Land Services, Inc. Since then, Keith has managed overall operations of the HLS survey division as well as overseeing all operations in the Westminster office. He uses his 30 years of experience to lead HLS staff with efficiency and integrity.
On July 30, 2021, Christina Casole, PE, became President of Hanover Land Services, Inc. Since then, Christina manages overall operations in the Hanover office. She uses her 18 years of experience to lead the engineering division with respect and efficiency.
Together, Christina and Keith work to meet clients’ needs, cap their expectations, and finish projects in a timely and effective manner. They also work to keep a positive work atmosphere by trusting, valuing, and supporting all HLS staff. Christina and Keith plan to grow the company to new levels an expand further into the design and environmental markets.
Hanover Land Services, Inc. staff has access to all Professional Surveys, LLC, Worley Surveying, Maryland Land Design, Inc. and remaining J.H. Rife Surveying plans, reports, and client files.
