Merced, CA – David Pelton, PLS, recently passed the state specific Land Surveying exam to become a Professional Land Surveyor in the state of California. He joins the eight other licensed surveyors within the firm of over 110 staff that provides land surveying, civil engineering, and supporting services.

“With historical percent passing in the low 20s, this is a very difficult exam to pass”, says Spencer Supinger, Assistant Branch Manager in Merced. “He passed the National portion over a year ago. He has also recently taken on the role as project manager and is excelling as the Survey Team Lead here in Merced.”

Mr. Pelton has been with QK since 2001. With his broad background in land surveying, he has proven himself a vital asset to the firm.  Serving as a party chief, his skills include performing boundary closure calculations, preparing parcel maps, final maps, and records of surveys.
