Topographic and Utility Survey for Hale Creek Correctional Facility
Weston & Sampson was recently awarded a $1,100,000 three-year contract for land surveying services with the New York State Office of General Services, with two-year optional extensions, for the third time. We held the same contract in previous years (2005 and 2008), each being for $1,000,000. The state wide contracts were for a variety of state sites and facilities, including correctional facilities, environmental centers, memorial parks, state police facilities, and other state buildings. i.e. State Cultural Center, the Governor’s Mansion.
Typically, each site required a detailed topographic survey, including investigations and mapping of underground utilities.
One of such projects was the Hale Creek Correctional Facility. We were tasked with mapping the entire 30-acre facility, providing a detailed topographic and utility survey. Utility mapping included extensive field investigations based on existing record drawings, soundings, tracing and inverting in order to determine utility connections and location. Utility information also included providing detailed sketches of the duct banks for all of the communication infrastructure. Building utility penetrations were determined from actual location and observations.
