Professional services:

Gorrondona & Associates, Inc. (G&AI) has more than 31 years of experience managing complex projects across the state. G&AI is a Texas Corporation with offices in Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, Austin, San Antonio, and Lubbock providing full service professional land surveying, geographic information systems (GIS), Mobile LiDAR, aerial mapping (photogrammetry/LiDAR), unmanned aerial system mapping (UAS), and terrestrial scanning.

Established in 1990, the company maintains a staff of nearly 80 people: including 10 registered professional land surveyors, two licensed professional engineers, two certified photogrammetrists, a certified mapping scientist – LiDAR, a geographic information systems professional (GISP), and 20 survey field crews.

A successful project is based on the quality of the survey. G&AI understands this fundamental requirement and it is on this tenet that the firm was founded. With a staff of 12 Registered Professional Land Surveyors who manage 20 field crews, G&AI maintains a staff of over 40 survey personnel. The knowledge base of G&AI’s registered surveyors underscores the seamless integration of the survey and mapping component with the engineering of each project performed.

G&AI also provides a wide variety of aerial mapping and related services. This requires acquisition of precision aerial photography and light detection and ranging (LiDAR) data for collecting both map data and imagery used for engineering-design and infrastructure-related applications. G&AI develops highly accurate design-grade map data for high-resolution color imagery.
