He articled to George Walker in 1965 and obtained his commission as an Alberta Land Surveyor on June 9, 1972.

Mr. Suvan worked with Walker Newby from 1954 to 1972 and became a partner in the firm in 1966. In 1972, he helped establish the firm of Suvan-Fettig & Associates Ltd. and remained an active Alberta Land Surveyor with the firm until he sold the practice to Dave Strachan, Dave Williams and Harvey Leach in 1992. The firm did some oilfield survey work but mostly concentrated on the municipal side of the profession and land development industry.

Upon leaving the land surveying profession, he obtained his real estate brokers license and is a principal in a land development company, Nor-Chris Holdings Inc. with his two sons.
