James ‘Dino’ Hestermann is the Director of Surveying for Ruggles & Bohm in Wichita. Dino has extensive surveying experience in Wichita and the surrounding areas on projects of all sizes and complexities, including mortgage title inspections, boundary surveys, construction layout staking, metes and bounds surveys, plats, flood certifications, topographic, architectural, and as-built surveys. He received his land surveyor’s license in November 2001.
Always seeking ways to provide even better, more accurate survey services to our clients, Dino has led our efforts in utilization of robotic total station units and, most recently, our migration to one-man GPS units. His expertise is best exemplified by his efforts at McConnell Air Force Base in Wichita, where our survey team helped establish the standard for the air base’s geospatial mapping system as a part of our work on the base.
In the office, Dino has served as Chief of Survey Parties since April of 2000 and is responsible for supervising and managing up to four survey crews, and works with our CAD technicians to help resolve any issues that may arise between field data and office base mapping. He is also responsible for QA/QC of fieldwork performed by the survey crews to ensure accuracy and acceptability.
