Salisbury, Md. — Davis, Bowen & Friedel, Inc., (DBF) announced the expansion of surveying services available through the firm’s office in Easton, Md. In addition to the surveying services already available through their other offices in Salisbury, Md., and Milford, Del., this latest supplement to DBF’s comprehensive list of capabilities will allow the firm to provide professional surveying services throughout the Delmarva Peninsula.
DBF’s services range across the full spectrum of land surveying that includes, but is not limited to: Boundary, Topographic, Wetland, Home Construction (stake-out, wall checks, pin footings and finals), Construction Stake-out, and Bathymetric Surveying.
In January, DBF was joined by professional surveyors Christopher Waters, David Diefenderfer and Tanner Dulin. Together, the three bring nearly 50 years of combined surveying experience to the firm. Waters began his surveying career in 1987 with Andrews, Miller & Associates (AMA) — a division of DBF (AMA/DBF) since 2007. Steadily advancing to serve as Crew Chief and Office Supervisor for AMA’s surveying department, Waters eventually left the firm in 2000 to start his own company. Diefenderfer launched his surveying career while still in high school and has been working with Waters as an invaluable asset for the past 15 years. Dulin, the most recent addition, has been a dedicated part of the team for approximately four years.
According to Waters, “As residents of the Easton area and graduates from local schools, we take great pride in providing quality service to the surrounding communities and government agencies for their surveying needs.”
DBF and AMA/DBF combined have been providing surveying services throughout Delmarva, and beyond, for over six decades. Quality surveying services have been provided to numerous federal, state, county and local agencies, as well as civic organizations, businesses and residential clients. As just one example, for more than 35 years, AMA/DBF has provided surveying services for the Cambridge Power Boat Regatta — also known as The Cambridge Classic.
With an ever-growing list of clients and projects in Maryland, Delaware and Virginia, DBF realized that now was the ideal time to expand the surveying services available through their Easton office. In addition to traditional surveying knowledge and techniques, Waters, Diefenderfer and Dulin bring AutoCAD skills and experience with cutting edge technology such as robotic surveying. Their addition to DBF’s surveying department will be of considerable benefit in completing the firm’s burgeoning list of civil/site design projects, which includes myriad residential communities currently under construction in Delaware.
With the addition of Waters and his team, DBF’s surveying division now consists of five survey crews, two licensed surveyors, three surveyors and two drafters whose depth and breadth of experience is extensive. The firm’s surveying division is adaptable to meet the changing and dynamic construction climate with exceptional customer service and goes above and beyond to meet client’s needs. The firm will continue upgrading equipment and technology in order to stay current with today’s industry standards of robotics and GPS, in addition to traditional surveying methods.
“We are truly excited that Chris, Dave and Tanner have joined our firm to fill a critical void in our Easton office and to further expand our surveying knowledge and capabilities throughout the Delmarva region,” shared Ring Lardner, P.E., principal of the firm.
