Welcome to the inaugural issue of GroundPoint Engineering’s GroundPoint Gazette, a new quarterly wrap-up where our SDVOB firm shares insights, information, and data about best practices for inspections, surveys, and other projects.

2023 has been a busy year for our GroundPoint team, and hopefully for you as well. The GroundPoint Gazette is a chance for you to catch up on the most popular content we’ve shared during the last several months, in one easy-to-read compilation. You’ll find links here to our most well-read articles and posts from both our website and our LinkedIn account.

We realize how busy our industry can get, so instead of just dropping links here for you to sort through, we’ve also included a brief preview description of each article so you’ll know exactly what you’re getting into before you dive in, and also so you can make thoughtful choices about which articles are most likely to resonate with you.

Look for the next issue to reach your email inbox later in Q1 2024. Until then, from our team to yours, GroundPoint Engineering wishes you a happy holiday season and prosperous New Year!
