Parks and Recreation
Planning, assessment, design, construction oversight, and technical review of efforts associated with the development of Parks and Recreation facilities within the City including parks, trails, parkways, recreation facilities, indoor and outdoor team and individual sport facilities and related improvements.
PIdentification and mapping of both City and non-City owned facilities and utility infrastructure. Will provide all services needed to facilitate integration of utility impacts within other engineering activities together with the necessary coordination with a wide array of utility owners.
The purpose of a topographic survey is for the determination of the configuration of the surface of the ground and the location of natural and artificial objects. A topographic survey provides elevation, contour, and relief of the subject lands.
A survey made to establish or to re-establish a boundary line on the ground or to obtain data for constructing a map or plat showing a boundary line.
Utility Route Survey
This survey provides data and information regarding the feasibility, general location possibilities, and probable costs of right-of-way, use, maintenance, and construction for the routes of railroads, highways, canals, pipe lines, and transmission lines.
This type of survey is utilized when a contractor, design engineer, or architect is planning changes to an existing facility. It provides an accurate description of post construction conditions.
A cadastral survey relates to land boundaries and subdivisions, made to create units suitable for transfer or to define the limitations of title.
ALTA stands for The American Land Title Association. ACSM stands for American Congress on Surveying and Mapping. Both have set forth standards for land title surveys. Usually a title company, lender, or owner will need a survey that meets these standards.
GPS and GIS
GPS or Global Positioning Systems surveys producehighly accurate measurements without the necessity of a clear line of sitebetween points. Allowing a surveyor to work in extraordinary terrain, use a one-man field crew, and measure along baselines of 5-20 miles; saving time and money.
We also use GIS which stands for Geographic Information Systems. They provide for better management of data in a graphic manner fro site-specific data generation and GIS project development.
A survey for condominiums that provides the location of the major site improvements such as utilities, parking, structures, curbing, etc.
This type of survey known as Quantity Survey is for obtaining measurements of quantities. Utilized with the construction process for earthwork, major excavations, landfills, sludge disposal, earthen dams, and disputed quantities.
Echo-sounding & Modeling of the Sub-terrain
Echo sounding is the technique of emitting sound pulses and measuring the resulting sound waves.
A survey to determine data relating to bodies of water. Typically including directions and force of currents, heights and times of tides and water stages, depth of water, configuration of the sea bottom and the locations of fixed objects.
Many commercial and residential lenders require elevation certificates if a property has been determined to be in a flood zone. Certification is useful if you are required to pay flood insurance and don’t believe you are in a flood zone.
Engineering Services Airport Layout and Navigational Control Site Development Engineering Subdivision Design and Layout
We offer all phases of subdivision engineering services including topography and boundary surveying, grading plans, infrastructure and plat design, construction phasing, drainage design, traffic impact studies, and cost estimates.
Aerial Photogrammetry and Control
Aerial photography comes after an accurate geodetic control is established. Parcel maps are built from and referenced to features that are visible in the aerial photos. Overall project timing, size of the project area, and scale must all be considered.
Residential Mortgage Survey
Mortgage surveys show the location, brief descriptions, and dimensions of all structures on the property, including driveways, swimming pools, fences, pole barns, etc.
Accident and Forensic Survey
Complete site survey of scenes including vehicle, homicide, terrorism, and major transportation accidents. Topographic, and data collection surveys produce the best display and mapping exhibits for settlement or litigation.
