What We Are Up To
We like our team to be well versed in each phase of surveying, to provide you a better product. Nick took on the task of training me on my first day in the field. My saving grace was growing up in the woods, because our first job was finding points in the middle of a poison ivy field. Being the only one on the crew that is not severely allergic to the menacing vine, I got to show off my machete skills. Although, I need a lot of improvement on the Schonstedt and Nick was quite embarrassed of my spray painting “skills”, we started to get a good rhythm going through the day. All in all, it was a successful weekend and an enjoyable experience. – Shellmore
8 To Infinity originated on the idea of taking both of our strengths and creating something out of them. Nick started to study architecture in school, which opened the door to begin his apprenticeship at a local Virginia Survey Firm. His career has followed that path for over 20 years.
Shell was born on 8/8/80, so the number has quite a special place within her life. She grew up in the Bahamas on a sailboat while her father worked the Maravilla (1656) Shipwreck in the Bahamas.
Charting & Navigation is what our backgrounds are based on and how we came up with our company logo, the compass rose.
8 to Infinity is the ability to take any small idea and make it something incredible. That’s reflected in our logo, where taking the number 8 and rotating it 90 degrees to create the infinity symbol. Our goal is to take a dream and make it a reality.
Through COVID, Nick felt that there was a need for highly skilled drafters within the industry.more
