Geodetic Designs Incorporated (GDI) is a full service design surveying consulting firm, providing services to public and private sector clients in Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and Louisiana. The company was founded by surveyors (David Vandenberghe, PS, CFedS and Gilbert Barish, PS, CFedS) in 2004. The two have a combined 39+ years of varied experience in the private, municipal, and governmental markets.
The firm prides itself on its ability to conduct all field and office projects utilizing licensed professional surveyors. The ability to utilize highly skilled staff minimizes delivery times and the potential for errors on each project completed by the firm.
The proper use of the most advanced surveying technology is vital in the success of a project. GDI utilizes real-time global positioning systems, integrated processing software, robotic terrestrial mapping systems, and a variety of computer drafting programs to facilitate the needs of our clients. Our flexibility in deliverable methods and techniques gives our clients a wealth of options for the use of the project data.
Mobility and quickness remains one of the top priorities for most of our clients. Our ability to travel great distances in a short period of time to complete surveys is one of our best abilities. As a smaller firm we are able to meet the needs of much larger firms by rapidly responding to survey requests. Our ability to process data and complete drawings while on location, transmit data via email or project ftp site, and provide project correspondence 24/7 allows GDI to maintain a strong and healthy client base.
