Degrove wishes to recognize and congratulate employee Tyler Tracz (pictured above) on passing the Principles of Surveying exam and achieving his professional license as a Surveyor and Mapper. A second generation surveyor, Mr. Tracz began working on a survey crew as a teenager for a summer job. While attending the University of Central Florida, he continued working in surveying during seasonal breaks in the school year. Eventually choosing to pursue a career in surveying, Mr. Tracz graduated from the University of Florida with a bachelor’s degree in geomatics in 2009. He has since been working at Degrove as a field/hydrographic party chief and assistant project manager.
In his time at Degrove, Mr. Tracz has contributed to a number of Degrove projects for clients such as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, JEA, St. Johns River Water Management District, Southwest Florida Water Management District, U.S.D.A. Forest Service, and City of Gainesville. Mr. Tracz also serves as a valuable member of Degrove’s hydrographic team, and has completed hydrographic surveys throughout the state of Florida.
Mr. Tracz’s achievement gives Degrove a total of six licensed Professional Surveyor and Mappers on staff, further allowing Degrove to offer a diverse level of expertise that is rarely found in a single survey firm.
