Cranston, RI – DiPrete Engineering recently welcomed Robert Babcock as its new survey department manager. Babcock, a registered land surveyor in both Rhode Island and Massachusetts, has 28 years of land surveying experience throughout New England and brings a variety of skills to DiPrete’s team.
Before joining the firm, Babcock worked as a field surveyor for Land Use Specialists, John Risser Associates, and Mark Hutchins Associates. He also served as survey manager for 16 years with Dunn McKenzie, Inc., located in Norfolk, Mass.
“Robert’s broad range of technical, engineering design, field, and presentation skills is a huge asset to our company,” said Hemant Ajbani, Chief Operating Officer at DiPrete Engineering. “His depth of knowledge and management experience will be an outstanding resource for our team and clients.”
Babcock is eager to enhance DiPrete Engineering’s processes and technology offerings. “My overall goal is to provide every client with a quality survey that meets the scope and budget of each project,” said Babcock. “Going forward, we will look to combine more advanced technologies such as 3D laser-scanning and drone surveying tools with DiPrete’s solid surveying process to produce comprehensive surveys for our clients.”
DiPrete Engineering hired Babcock in place of Peter Wagenaar, the firm’s preceding survey department manager, who is returning to his family in Minnesota.
