I'm a professional land surveyor licensed in the states of Connecticut, Rhode Island and Colorado for the past 40 years. I'm currently a principal of DiCesare-Bentley Engineers, Inc. ( (website hidden) ) and have served the corporation in the capacities of President and Director of Surveys for nearly 30 years.
For the past several years I've been renovating historic properties with my son Kevin and wife Dawn. Our first project was an 1880 three-family Greek Revival home in the village of Pawcatuck in the town of Stonington CT. Our latest project is an 1845 two-family Greek Revival in the village of Mystic CT in the town of Groton CT. We get great pleasure from rescuing these properties and making them available for the enjoyment of our guests.
More about me if you care: (Michael Scanlon the land surveyor – NOT the lobbyist!)
Prior to joining DiCesare-Bentley Engineers, Inc. in 1986 I was in private practice as a professional land surveyor with offices in Denver, CO where I was also a member of the faculty at Denver Institute of Technology. At the Institute I held the appointment of Surveying and Mapping Dept. Program Supervisor and served as Senior Instructor. My work at the Institute included the development and implementation of their internationally renowned surveying and mapping curriculum in addition to my teaching responsibilities. I have also held an adjunct faculty position in the Engineering Technology Department at Three Rivers Community–Technical College Norwich, CT.
I've authored, co-authored, reviewed and edited numerous textbooks and training materials on various surveying topics. I am frequently invited to present professional development workshops and seminars for state, local and national surveyor’s organizations. Over the past 30 years I've also been called upon to provide testimony at deposition and trial on matters pertaining to boundary disputes and quiet title action, professional standard of care as relates to the practice of land surveying and professional opinions regarding the analysis and interpretation of maps, deeds, field evidence and related matters as affect real property.
