Survey equipment will be used in CMCC programs.

AUBURN – Sebago Technics Inc., a consulting engineering, planning, landscape architecture and land survey firm in Westbrook, donated survey equipment to Central Maine Community College’s architectural and civil engineering program.

Two Sokkia Total Stations with data collectors were presented to Richard Bastow, CMCC’s Architectural and Civil Engineering Department chairman, by Charles Brown and David St.Clair, graduates of the college program and senior survey managers at Sebago Technics.

Scott Knapp, college president, and Lee Jay Feldman, Sebago Technics’ director of planning, were also on hand for the ceremony.

Prior to the donation, the survey equipment was used on a daily basis by Sebago Technics’ survey staff for a variety of boundary, topographic and construction layout assignments.

While replaced by newer equipment, the stations are functional and suitable for teaching the basics of surveying and data collection. Maine Technical Source of Yarmouth inspected, cleaned and adjusted the equipment to ensure that the systems were suitable for academic use.

“Sebago Technics has a long history of giving back to the community. We and Maine Technical Source are pleased to support CMCC’s goals by being a part of a public-private partnership to enhance educational opportunities in our state,” said Brown, the company’s vice president of field services.

“I’m so happy to get two total stations with data collectors,” said Bastow. “Prior to the donation, we had only one SET 3 and it has been an effort to give every one in the class a chance to spend time with it.”
