Remembering George Alfred Courbron, Jr.
To our dearest clients and consultants,
It is with great sadness that we announce that our beloved founder, father and friend, George Alfred Courbron, Jr. (PLS #1126) passed away early on Monday, May 24, 2021.
One of George’s absolute favorite distractions in life was working with you on your land development concerns, goals and dreams. He understood just how important your little slice of heaven is to you and your family, and took great satisfaction in being able to guide you through the development process or boundary dispute. Thank you for sharing in those moments with him.
Within the SurveyWorks, Inc. family, George was an ever-eager teacher and mentor with an inexhaustible knowledge of land surveying, environmental science and planning & permitting. Many of us in the industry today owe our start, in part, to this man.
George began his professional career in 1972 as a surveyor for Aliberti, Larochelle and Hodson Engineering Corporation in Auburn, ME. While with this firm he received an associate’s degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Maine and accreditation as a Maine Licensed Professional Land Surveyor. In 1978, he began is own firm, Courbron Associates, Inc. (which later became Technical Services, Inc.), and expanded his services to include soils investigation, environmental studies and regulatory approvals.
George started SurveyWorks, Inc. in July of 1989 and again expanded services to include the environmental sciences (soils, groundwater, wetlands, etc.). In addition to his PLS, George was a licensed site evaluator and wetland scientist. He was also a qualified expert witness and provided expert testimony in a courtroom setting on many occasions. George’s hard work and dedication to the industry has allowed SurveyWorks, Inc. to become Central Maine’s premier and most-trusted land-use consulting firm.
George served the greater Central Maine community for nearly fifty years! There is no question that George leaves behind a lasting impact on the industry and the land surveying profession. SurveyWorks, Inc. vows to honor George’s legacy by continuing to develop that same trust and understanding with our clients that George so cherished.
