Christine is president and co-founder of Gayron de Bruin Land Surveying and Engineering, PC.
She started her career designing conduit for Verizon’s capital improvement program, which eventually led to focus on geospatial services on infrastructure projects. Christine is currently the President-Elect for the Long Island Branch of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and serves on the Young Professionals Committee of the New York State Association of Professional Land Surveyors (NYSAPLS).
Christine advocates for licensed land surveyors on the national level, as the younger member representative for New York State. She presents continuing education lectures on the subjects of surveying and LiDAR. In recent months, alongside her partner Greg de Bruin, has taken up an initiative to improve the US Cadastral system. In September 2018, Christine and Greg traveled to Switzerland as US Delegates to lean about the Swiss system of managing geospatial and Cadastral data. They hope to bring these methods to the United States, improving on an outdated and archaic system.
Christine has spent her career learning the specific mapping systems of Long Island as well as each NYC borough. In order to effectively plan and execute projects, Christine’s extensive knowledge of equipment and software avails her to choose the best methodology for each project. Christine recognizes the importance of addressing the client’s standards and procedures, quality and excellent service is her top priority.

Mr. de Bruin started his civil engineering career in the 1970’s focusing on road, drainage, utility design, and construction management. He spent 20 years running the construction inspection program at his predecessor firm, A. James de Bruin & Sons. Greg has more than 38 years of experience and is always pushing the envelope of new technology and automation in the field of measurement and mapping. He is an expert in all the field and office equipment, as well as an accomplished programmer. He is involved in all survey projects and continues to customize and automate our procedures. In 2006, Greg introduced our 3D laser scanner for incredibly detailed and accurate mapping. We are currently using the laser scanner to survey building facades, bridges, and sites with limited or dangerous accessibility.
In recent months, alongside his partner Christine Gayron, has taken up an initiative to improve the US Cadastral system. In September 2018, Christine and Greg traveled to Switzerland as US Delegates to lean about the Swiss system of managing geospatial and Cadastral data.
