3D Case Studies

Bob Ptak started in the marine surveying business in 2001.  He developed the "3D NewAge Focus" software, which is marine surveying software based on the 3D Inspection System.  UPDATE: Bob has since retired from Marine Survey related items and is enjoying his retirement.  Best wishes to you Bob.  We're leaving his success story as part of his legacy.

Jay Rizzo is the President of Tiger Home Inspections in Braintree, MA. Their service area runs from Rhode Island to Cape Cod MA, North to New Hampshire and West to Worcester, MA, and the housing stock in the area is an eclectic mix that is priced from the low 300s to several million dollars. Tiger Home Inspection employs 35 full-time inspectors and is the largest privately owned multi-inspector firm in the region. Jays father, Joe Rizzo and his partner Carl Pucci, were just two guys with an idea, who started the business during the early days of home inspection. Jay and his brother Sean had grown up surrounded by the home inspection business, but it was not until 1995 that Jay joined the firm officially, after having worked a stint with a design/build environmental engineering firm.

Mr. Jim Farmer of Oxnard, California has been in the inspection business for over 30 years, since 1976, and has held every position on the Board of Directors of CREIA.  Well known as an expert Witness, he shares his inspection philosophy and thoughts on the industry.
