PVTS Company Information



PVTS Facility Locations -- serving ALL of Northern California:


Based in the Napa Valley, PVTS has been serving the north bay area since 1993. Our company began by offering services in the area of vineyard trellis installation; specializing in difficult terrain. These types of installations required innovative approaches. Through the use of applied technology and design science, PVTS custom fabricated heavy equipment to complete tasks where no commercial machinery existed. 


Our goal has been to provide high quality installations for hillside vineyard clients. In 1996, we added land clearing and deer fencing to our scope of services. Much of our development experience continues to include steep, excessively rocky terrain. In 1997 we broadened our services to technical consulting in vineyard development and project management.


In 1998, PVTS again took an interest in technology and design science relative to project layout and planning. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology became a daily tool for vineyard design, vineyard layout and project planning. Currently, PVTS provides technical consultation and services in the following areas: 


-   high-precision (centimeter level)  global positioning system (GPS) mapping

-   GIS data management and consultation

-   aerial imagery / remote sensing / microclimate mapping

-   3-dimensional terrain modeling and surface analysis

-   facilities management mapping and database support


Moving into the mid-decade after Y2K, PVTS provides broader agricultural land development consultation to local crops other than grapes. We offer education and training in the areas of GIS data management, GPS data collection, and precision agriculture.


As a result of our dedication to high precision GPS (Survey Grade Standards) in GIS mapping, PVTS now provides GPS support and consultation to local and regional land survey companies and civil engineering firms as a subcontractor on all manner of agricultural and municipal development projects . More recently, the principal, Reg Parks, enrolled in the Santa Rosa Junior College (SRJC) Civil Survey, Engineering and Geospatial Certificate Program. After 2 years enrolled, he was invited to teach at the college in the areas of land surveying and GIS. Subsequent to that , Napa Valley college invited him to teach there too.





In 2008, the Director of the SRJC Program, Jerry Miller invited Reg Parks to become an associate in his land survey firm. Secondary to this venture, we now jointly provide complete land surveying and geospatial analysis services (GPS, GIS and LIS based survey and engineering support) to all the north bay counties and beyond.




The main PVTS shop and fabrication facility is located on Atlas Peak Road in Napa, California.


Our administrative offices, also in Napa, are just off Big Ranch Road between Napa and Yountville.
