Support Staff

Our Field Technicians pride themselves on the accurate and efficient manner in which they collect data. Their many years of combined experience gives them a vast knowledge in all aspects of global positioning surveying.

Our CAD Operators/Technicians ensure that their “masterpieces” are done accurately by working with the Field Technicians and the data collected by them.

Our Support Staff works hard to ensure that timelines are being met and that all customers receive the quality service they deserve.
