SGM announces three employee certifications

SGM has announced the professional certifications of Bob Brandeberry and Tim Barnett as professional land surveyors and Danny Stewart as a professional engineer.

Brandeberry has been with SGM since 2004 after beginning his surveying career in Ohio in 2000. His experience includes performing the field work and map preparation of boundary surveys within the Public Lands Survey System, CDOT Right-of-Way surveys, ALTA surveys, subdivisions, topographic mapping, monitoring surveys, GPS control networks, construction stacking and oil-and-gas surveys.

With SGM’s recent addition of state-of-the-art scanning equipment, Brandeberry has expanded his knowledge of 3-D scanning applications in the field and office. He has experience as a survey supervisor, project manager and field supervisor. His experience and familiarity in working in Western Colorado makes him a valuable asset to the firm’s transportation, energy and water/wastewater teams, the company said in a statement.

Barnett recently joined SGM as a survey crew chief. Barnett’s 11 years of experience in the Roaring Fork Valley has included all types of surveys including boundaries, ALTAs, improvement survey, annexation plats, site and grading plans. He has experience with AutoCad Civil 3-D, GPS and Sonar equipment.

His experience includes Black Diamond Mine Road and Lova Trail in Garfield County, and Jasper Avenue in Granby. The statement noted that those are relevant examples of unique design solutions to accommodate diverse traffic and pedestrian demands.

Much of his project experience has involved public process tasks as well. As a member of SGM’s transportation and development team, he works daily with AASHTO, CDOT and local standards. Stewart received his bachelor of science in Civil Engineering-Water Resources from the University of Wyoming.
