DGT Associates, Leading Surveying, Engineering, and Subsurface Utility Mapping Firm in New England, Turns 25 and Completes 6,130 Projects

BOSTON — (BUSINESS WIRE) — June 3, 2021 — As one of New England’s prominent surveying, engineering, and subsurface utility mapping firms, DGT Associates celebrates its 25th anniversary and has completed more than 6,130 projects in the region and across the nation. DGT’s work and expertise have led to the development of landmark properties around New England, including Fenway Park, Faneuil Hall Marketplace, the Prudential Center, Harvard Business School, Longwood Medical Area, and the project where DGT’s founders, Bob Staples and Mike Clifford first met — the Big Dig.

Founded in 1996, DGT traces its history from the work and innovations of fourteen of the region’s preeminent survey and engineering firms dating back to 1877 with the acquisition of Aspinwall & Lincoln. Today, DGT serves municipalities, energy and telecommunication companies, education and medical campuses, and residential and commercial properties across New England and the nation. The Massachusetts-based firm has offices in Boston, Worcester, and Framingham and recently added an office in Preston, Connecticut, with the acquisition of Mattern & Stefon Land Surveyors.

“We’re proud to celebrate our 25 years and proud to call New England our home,” said Bob Staples, Co-founder & Principal. “Beyond DGT’s history, we’re honored to carry forward the rich history and knowledge of this region held within our 144 years of archival data. Our files, and the work they represent, serve as the bedrock for our communities, and we feel a great deal of responsibility to maintain and leverage this information for the betterment of our communities, today and tomorrow.”

Founded on principles of innovation, DGT Associates has been known through the years to embrace technology to advance the industry. As one of the nation’s earliest adopters of subsurface utility mapping in 1997 as a safer, more accurate alternative to traditional practices, DGT continues to expand its work in this domain. These advancements enable DGT to adhere to and deliver ASCE 38-02 standards, GPR and remote-sensing, CAD, and BIM-ready plans, in order to provide valuable information to asset owners, general contractors, engineers, architects, and other development stakeholders.

“As an integral part of the region’s evolution, we’re excited to continue broadening our offerings—especially as it relates to our subsurface utility mapping services. Communities are growing, new developments are being built, and the need to safely and accurately identify the underground landscape becomes increasingly important, and increasingly complex,” said Michael Clifford, Co-founder & Principal. “According to the 2019 DIRT Report, underground damage numbers are rising with 534,151 damages reported that year. Our work has helped to prevent countless damages and site accidents like these. As we embark on the next 25 years in business, we will continue to embrace the latest technologies, both above and below ground, for safer work practices and more reliable information our clients can build on — literally.”
