Geodynamics received certification from the New York Department of Transportation as a Disadvantaged Business Entity (DBE) in that state. Based on our DBE certification in our home state of North Carolina, Geodynamics has become DBE certified through the intrastate reciprocity process in five other states: Delaware, Maryland, New York, South Carolina and Virginia.
In March 2017, Geodynamics team members attended a 3-day Geodetic Leveling course at the NGS Corbin Training Center in Corbin, VA. The class covered many topics, including leveling history and theory, modern equipment and techniques, digital level operation and data collection. Participants also learned how to process leveling data, prepare station descriptions, and submit data to NGS. Based on participation in the NGS course, Aron Lemke has prepared leveling mini-courses and practice exercises to provide in-house training to the entire Geodynamics team. These skills will be used for digital leveling and tide gauge installation, and to improve daily survey operation.
Geodynamics was awarded a NCWORKS Incumbent Worker Training Grant in 2016 to support our employees with skills improvement opportunities. From October to December, our entire team worked with James Cole, PMP to examine our company’s goals and vision and assess how we can continually improve and evaluate our performance. Over five half-day sessions, we devoted our time to understanding what makes our company great, and developed strategies that support our core values of data accuracy, cutting edge technology, and responsiveness to clients. We dedicated ourselves to setting precise and measurable goals, so that as Geodynamics grows we will retain our company focus and commitment to our central mission. Our thanks to James and the Carteret Community College for facilitating this training!
The North Carolina Board of Examiners for Engineers and Surveyors has renewed Geodynamics LLC’s license to conduct hydrographic surveys in the State. Our surveys continue to be supervised by a hydrographer certified by the American Congress on Surveying and Mapping / The Hydrographic Society of America, and are additionally supervised by a registered NC Professional Land Surveyor. Geodynamics is proud to be working with the NCBELS as the agency expands its supervision of GIS, aerial and hydrographic surveying.
Geodynamics is prequalified by the NC Department of Transportation to provide hydrographic survey services as a private consultant. Our application has been reviewed and approved by the GIS Branch, the Highway Design Branch, and the State Port Authority. Geodynamics has provided hydrographic survey services to the NCDOT in the past, including rapid response surveys of the Pea Island Breach following Hurricane Irene and high-resolution multibeam sonar surveys of the Morehead City State Port. We look forward to the opportunity to continue to serve the NCDOT and State Port Authority.
