About Beyond the Boundary

Beyond the Boundary, the Educational Component of Nadeau Land Surveys, was established to help real estate and land use professionals reduce liability and better represent their clients when dealing with land surveying and floodplain management concerns. As consultants who have diverse experience with land surveying, floodplain management, and real estate, we receive requests not only for our services, but often for advice in dealing with municipal approvals, land divisions, boundary disputes, developing in the flood zone, appealing flood zone determinations, lowering flood insurance premiums, and more.

To meet the growing need for continued education and sound guidance, we began developing educational programs to meet specific learning needs of various stakeholders in the real estate industry, including brokers/agents, appraisers, code enforcement officers, attorneys, lenders, insurance agents, and design professionals.

Beyond the Boundary has taken program development a step further by continuing our own education so that we can better educate others. In 2013, we were awarded Bronze Level Certification for Training Evaluation by the Kirkpatrick Partners, and are working our way up to Gold Level. Program Director, Jim Nadeau, has also earned his Basic Instructor Certificate from FEMA's Emergency Management Institute, and all Beyond the Boundary staff have earned the national designation of Certified Floodplain Manager, to become more informed consultants.
