George maintains strong connections with the US Military. In the 1980s, he spent 2 1/2 years as a West Point cadet in the U.S. Army and also a year as a surveyor with HHB, 2nd Bat, 157th Field Artillery of the Colorado Army National Guard. George has been active for a number of years with the

James had been surveying for several years when he and George decided to begin working together about 13 years ago. Whether managing projects from behind a computer monitor using AutoCAD Civ3D or from a TSC3 Controller 115-feet off the ground at the controls of an aerial work platform, James makes things happen in an accurate and productive way.
James was lead field surveyor for the complex National Gallery of Art Stone Repairs Project where our contract called for vertical location tolerances to remain under 0.0052-ft over the course of a 3-year period. Required elevation reporting locations were evenly spaced vertically from the ground to points 110-ft above the ground.
James was central to our successful completion of a 40-acre existing facility topographic survey in 2012 at Quantico Marine Corps Base performed for the $99-million design-build Marine Corps University Expansion. The challenging 18-day deadline for completion required by our contract was met. Other projects managed by James include the Richmond Justice Center, Huguenot High School Replacement, the US Army TRADOC Headquarters Relocation to Fort Eustis, and countless boundary and topographical surveys.
When not at work, James can often be found with a guitar and microphone in front of a crowd somewhere in RVA with the rest of his band, ‘Lowbirds’.
