HGI Acheives 3rd Party Certification of Economically Disadvantaged Women-Owned Small Business (EDWOSB)

May 15th, 2015

HGI is proud to announce that as of April 10th, 2015 we have obtained third party certification from the U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce as an Economically Disadvantaged Women-Owned Small Business (EDWOSB).  This, in addition to our other DBE certifications, gives us an advantage in gaining and maintaining government contract work both independently and through strategic partnerships.  We truly look forward to the additional doors this certification will help us to open.

As part of our continued support for our armed services while promoting education in engineering and sciences HGI attended the Society of American Military Engineers annual dinner and scholarship award ceremony.  The event was as successful as ever with many of the SAME community showing their support.  A total of 19 students were awarded with nearly $70k in scholarship aid.  HGI congratulates the students for their achievements and wishes them all well in their upcoming studies and inevitably successful futures!


SAGEEP 2015 - GPR Inspection of Structural Wood Beams

May 5th, 2015

This past March, HGI’s very own Katie Decker, PhD, presented an innovative topic at this year’s Symposium on the Application of Geophysics to Environmental and Engineering Problems in Austin, TX.  Katie and co-author Alex Buller’s talk was featured in the Agricultural Geophysics & Material Properties section and was titled “The Use of Ground-Penetrating Radar (GPR) for Non-Destructive Monitoring of In-Situ Structural Wood Quality.”  This research highlighted results from an ongoing investigation at a local facility where laminated wood beams were known to be degrading over time due to exposure to water and stress.  The presentation is the culmination of a temporal study spanning seven years of GPR data collection, with results indicating clear but varied responses to varying stages of decay. Nice job Katie!


HGI Welcomes Dan Glaser to Our Team

January 6th, 2015

Mr. Glaser is an accomplished geophysicist and project manager with a long background in government contracting. He is a Licensed Professional Geologist in New Hampshire and Washington State, as well as a certified Project Management Professional.

Dan comes to us from the US DOE Hanford Nuclear Waste facility in south central Washington state where he was involved with site characterization studies surrounding the legacy radioactive waste tank farms and associated subsurface contamination. Using electrical resistivity based technologies contaminant distribution in and around the subsurface tank farms was mapped in support of the RCRA field investigations.

Additionally, Dan was involved with the development of a first of it’s kind resistivity based leak detection system used to monitor the subsurface tanks during waste retrieval operations.  Past experience includes time as a research geophysicist with US EPA National Exposure Research Laboratory, Phase I & II Environmental Site Assessments for petroleum station real estate transactions, and contaminant source mapping for reclaimed mine sites.

Dan’s major duties for HGI will include large project acquisition and management, as well as active marketing campaigns.

Please join us in welcoming Dan to our team!


HGI Welcomes our new Geophysicist Mark Domaracki
