In addition to his published papers, Mr. Lazio served as a guest speaker at the National Geodetic Survey Convocation and the Northeast Positioning Conference, speaking on private sector applications, current and future trends for the On-line Positioning User Service (OPUS). Peter completed the OPUS Project Manager training course at the National Geodetic Training Center in 2016 and continues to add to his professional development through the New York State Association of Professional Land Surveyors (NYSAPLS) and the New Jersey Society of Professional Land Surveyors (NJSPLS).

Since coming to GdB in late 2017, Peter has provided unmatched knowledge, guidance, and mentorship to GdB’s staff, fostering the development of our field survey staff with best practices and experience.
