MY PRINCIPLES

"There's more than one way to skin a cat", as my father would say every time we were called to troubleshoot a Project. He had numerous mottos relating to his profession as a Construction Surveyor. My favorites were, "There's no perfect set of plans.", "Water has got to go somewhere.", "Perfect begins with the survey.", and "If you know where the construction is going, you can use the surveying to set its pace." After 30 years as a Construction Surveyor, I have found that these mottos are the creeds I utilize in my daily tasks.

The Survey world has changed dramatically, with it's new technology emerging and constant change, but it has not allowed the innovative surveyor to learn the older established methods and reapply them. In the past, the construction surveying procedures were to make certain that every detail in the procedure was perfected. The lack of understanding of Construction Surveyors is a part of the reason that contractors are losing so much in their layouts for their Projects.

Quotes Mr. Fierro has been a tremendous asset as a Survey Superintendent for our project. He arrived about midway into our project and re-structured our surveying to be precise and cost effective. He was called here because no survey company could guarantee that all of our turbine pedestal embeds (235) would be within 1/16" tolerance. He came here and took our carpenter surveyors and completed the turbine embeds within this tolerance. Mr. Fierro's excellence and professionalism is beyond the measures of Construction Surveying.

Quotes I have worked with Frank Fierro at the Comanche Unit 3 Power Plant, 750 MW Coal Fired Power Plant. Frank came into this Project to help us recover from the problem of layout errors that we had with Surveying. Frank has successfully turned around our survey work and provided leadership and guidance to all our crews so that we can now perform survey to a level of high accuracy and without rework. Frank is a professional who takes pride in performing his work, he is conscientious and dedicated, and has a level of expertise in the surveying field that surpasses any other individual that I have known.

Quotes Frank Worked under my indirect supervision as a Construction Survey Supervisor at the Department of Energy's Weldon Springs Site Remedial Action Project in Weldon Springs, MO. During the period I worked with Frank, he proved to be an excellent supervisor, and a first rate Construction Surveyor. I was quite impressed by Frank's ability for Construction layout procedures. He regularly educated our other surveyors on construction staking for project execution. His work was consistently accurate and concise. Overall, Frank is very conscientious and able with great "people skills" and I believe he would make an excellent Construction Survey Manager. Quotes

Quotes During the time that I have known Mr. Fierro, he has always performed in a very positive and professional manner, courteous and dependable.

The work he has performed on construction jobs has always been precise, accurate and on time. His skill and expertise on construction survey matters have been real assets on our projects.
