Between about 1990 and 2014 BGC's main office was at 905 Sixth Street in Arcata, CA. These are a few photos of that office and some memorable staff moments. Currently BGC operates out of its Harbor, OR, office. Bob recently sold the building to son Roy, owner of Sacred Geometrics, a closing design firm that specializes in clothing with geometric designs.
View of the front of the building from Sixth Street. There is a goldfish pond in the entryway. The soils lab was in the back part of the building.

Beau and Martha are now living in France after a ~6-yr-long stint in Perth, W.A., where Beau finished his Ph.D. and Martha worked full time as a geologist.

The culmination of one of the most expensive reports we had delivered to date. This one addressed a 4.2 million dollar home that was built WAY too close to a bluff edge in Harbor, Oregon.
