Truro resident, Wilfred “Red” Slade began his land surveying career while still a teller at Seamen’s Savings Bank in Provincetown in the mid 1930s. Between 1948 and 1962 he worked as chief of survey party for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts State Highway. Included in his assignments was the laying out of the base line for the new Route 6. In 1962 he went into private practice, opening a modest surveying firm in Wellfleet.

Between 1965 and 1969 he was joined in the summers by twin brothers, Dick and Chet Lay who had strong family ties to Wellfleet that went back many generations. Upon graduation from college in 1970, they both had decided that surveying was a pleasant way to make a living and so settled in Wellfleet with their new wives. With their love of the outdoors and for the Cape’s natural beauty, it was a decision that time has only reinforced.

Slade Associates, Inc. has evolved into a modern surveying firm with a fully networked computer system, Computer-Aided Drafting and Design (CADD)—which allows plans to be sent to clients electronically—and with total station theodolites with electronic distance measuring units. Slade Associates, Inc. covers all aspects of land surveying, including boundary surveys, surveys for the Land Court, condominium conversion plans, certified plot plans, subdivision plans, control surveys for photogrammetry, topographic surveys, leveling, land planning, wetlands permitting, flood plain certificates and archival research at the Barnstable County Registry of Deeds and Probate.
