Fort Myers, FL — Surveying and mapping are essential parts in the beginning stages of any development and critical to the expert work conducted by Morris-Depew, one of the state’s top consulting firms offering civil engineering, land planning, landscape architecture, surveying and mapping services. Now, Tim Kissida will play an important role in this process, recently hired as a survey rodman.
Kissida’s responsibilities include transporting and setting up instruments and other equipment associated with preparing a job site for a survey.
Some of the major surveying and mapping projects by Morris-Depew include the new Margaritaville development on Fort Myers Beach, the Gulf Coast Medical Center campus and Gulf Coast Medical Park, the Gasparilla Inn on Boca Grande, Bonita Grande Mine site and a parish hall for Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Church on Boca Grande.
Originally from New Jersey, Kissida attended Philadelphia University for marketing and graphic design, while also studying communication and personal performance training.
“I believe I have an artistic ability with an eye for design, as well as an ability to use media as a language to communicate abstract ideas,” Kissida said.
Added Morris-Depew President Bill Morris: “Surveying remains an essential part of our operations and we are excited to have Tim as a part of our staff.”
Kissida’s interests include exploring Florida’s many parks and preserves. “I am hoping to one day camp in every national park in the U.S.,” Kissida said about this country’s 63 national parks.
