Gartley & Dorsky Engineering & Surveying has provided us with exceptional service. Although we reside in Florida, we own shore property in South Thomaston, Maine that we planned to develop. Since we were unfamiliar with the reputation of local firms, during our annual visits we relied on the local community and other professionals to recommend a respected engineering firm. Gartley & Dorsky Engineering & Surveying came with the highest degree of approbation.
We sought an engineering firm that was familiar with the MDEP requirements for shoreline stabilization and the application process. On our behalf, Gartley & Dorsky Engineering & Surveying provided the State of Maine an outstanding shoreline stabilization profile of our property which was approved. Our project manager was professional and courteous, explaining the procedures and answering our many questions. Our discussions with Gartley & Dorsky Engineering & Surveying occurred entirely through electronic and phone communications.
We are indeed extremely satisfied with their work and would highly recommend their services to others.Michael & Patricia Smith Vero Beach, FL
For a number of years, our firm has engaged Gartley & Dorsky Engineering & Surveying for professional services on various projects, including site surveys, building assessments, structural engineering, and residential waste system design. In all cases, they provided high quality services in a timely manner. We have been very pleased with their ability to understand the scope of work requested and their pro-active engagement in the design process, making suggestions for our consideration. We have found our communications with each of their departments to be clear and cordial. We are presently working with Gartley & Dorsky Engineering & Surveying and expect to be expanding our use of their services.Scholz & Barclay Architects Camden, ME
It was a pleasure working with you and your company. Since we are in the same business I knew the permit process could be a lengthy ordeal. Your complementary knowledge of the ME State requirements as well as the Federal requirements was what we were looking for to guide us through the regulatory process. We are all happy with the way the design turned out. Thanks again for a job well done and we will not hesitate to recommend Gartley & Dorsky Engineering & Surveying to any of our friends or business associates.Peter Falnes S. Thomaston, Maine and Hamilton, New Jersey
As a recent member of the Camden Planning Board for five years I had the opportunity to review a number of site plan review and subdivision applications presented by Gartley & Dorsky Engineering & Surveying on behalf of clients with commercial, condominium, multi-family housing, and single family residential projects. These applications involved zoning ordinance review, survey work, civil engineering, and public waste system design. The presentations, services provided, and responses to requests for information or revisions were handled very professionally and in a timely manner.John B. Scholz, AIA Camden, ME
As Code Enforcement Officer I have been working with Gartley and Dorsky Engineering & Surveying since the company was founded. It has been a pleasure to work with such a professional group of people. Presentations to our Planning Board are always very thorough and their representatives have established an excellent working relationship with the Board.
The fact that the company provides "one stop shopping" for all aspects of planning and engineering is a noticeable benefit during the review process. I have often noted how diligent they are in protecting their customers by ensuring that all local, state and federal regulations are considered and properly addressed. Before even unrolling a set of plans, when I see the Gartley and Dorsky Engineering & Surveying logo I know my job will be easier.Midcoast Maine Code Enforcement Officer
I have had numerous opportunities to work with Gartley & Dorsky Engineering & Surveying, on projects for Cianbro Corporation, and have found working with them to be a positive experience. These collaborative projects have been wide-ranging, and include structural analysis, storm water runoff surveys, and design for hanging platforms, new buildings, monorails, lifting beams and drainage systems. Gartley & Dorsky not only provided the agreed-to services, but always did so promptly. They were always willing to help and quickly responded to all requests, making it effortless to work with them.
The cooperation and professionalism of Gartley & Dorsky and its staff contributed to a very successful and rewarding experience for Cianbro. Cianbro looks forward to having the opportunity to work with them in the future.Tom Kennedy, Cianbro Project Manager
My company has been in the development business for many years in Florida. Recently we acquired an ocean front property in Rockport, Maine and we were fortunate enough to hire Gartley and Dorsky Engineering & Surveying for the site planning work. They have done a marvelous job especially given my out-of-state office location. They are well received in the community and provided, and continue to provide, excellent work. I would highly recommend their firm.Hal White, Riviera Development LLC, Coral Gables, Florida
Our family has been long time summer residents of Maine, but we live much of the year across the country on the "other coast." When we started a major shoreline restoration and fill project, we needed a local firm to help us with the design and permitting process. Gartley & Dorsky Engineering & Surveying did a first rate job in successfully completing that process and in keeping us informed along the way. They also supervised the completion of the project and we are very pleased with the end result.Eric Vetterlein, Portland Oregon and Rockport, Maine
The Georges River Land Trust is pleased to have partnered with Gartley and Dorsky for their professional services, specifically surveys of conservation lands.

Without hesitation, we would recommend their services to our landowner clients as well as other land trusts.Annette Naegel, Georges River Land Trust
I want to thank Gartley and Dorsky for all the fine work you did with the property. I am very happy and excited about its sale possibility. I hope the Tier 1 wetland approval will set folks minds at ease as to the purchase and the reality of building on this property. Once again thank you all for your hard work and professionalism!!Cliff Rose, Devens MA and Camden ME
I primarily work with buyer clients who are choosing all types of properties in Maine from new contemporary waterfront homes to historic downtown buildings. Helping my buyer clients make informed and educated decisions is part of my core buyer broker philosophy - regardless of experience or wealth - buying real estate is an emotional process. That's why I strive to provide avenues of logic, reason and information to give my clients the confidence they need to move forward. Therefore I rely on other professionals with whom my clients can connect. One of my greatest assets is leveraging the expertise of engineers and site specialists at Gartley & Dorsky.
Whenever my clients have grave questions about structural integrity or site positioning for septic systems - I turn to my trusted contacts at G&D - Carmen Cherry and Dave Marceau. These two individuals worked with me, my clients and respective contractors to evaluate the situations, create a workable plan and see it through. I'm marveled by their knowledge and creativity - but more importantly their interpersonal skills in working with others and how much they genuinely care about providing accurate, honest service.
I'm a better real estate broker because I have these folks as part of my cadre of professionals. Thank you for all you do!Mary Bumiller - Broker/REATLOR, Jaret & Cohn Real Estate
My wife and I live in a small village in Germany. We spend our summers at a cottage on Norton's Pond in Lincolnville. During the summer of 2008, we were told that our cottage was listed by FEMA in Flood Zone A (meaning a high probability our cottage would be flooded in a heavy rain). We believed this to be in error and contacted Gartley and Dorsky Engineering & Surveying to check the accuracy of this classification. We were very pleased with the service they provided. Their cost estimate was correct, and they finished the project in the time frame we had discussed. We would recommend Gartley and Dorsky to anybody.John Crockett, Germany and Lincolnville, ME
Maine Farmland Trust is pleased to have worked with Gartley and Dorsky on a major farmland conservation project in the mid-coast area. They are thorough and timely with their surveys, and offer great service in the process.
Not only would we highly recommend their services to our clients and to other land trusts, but we look forward to working with them on future farmland conservation projects."Nina Young, Maine Farmland Trust
