This project involved the design, right-of-way acquisition and construction support for 66 miles of new 345kV, double circuit, transmission lines. G&AI’s scope of work included survey and subsurface utility engineering (SUE).
The survey scope of work included GPS control survey, easement acquisition, temporary easement acquisition, and off right-of-way access surveys with plats and field notes for right-of-way acquisitions, centerline/alignment staking, overhead utility survey, design survey, right-of-way survey, borehole staking, right-of-way staking for vegetation management and construction staking of lattice towers. Subsurface utility engineering was requested by the client and was utilized to identify, locate and map existing underground utilities at each proposed angle location and areas of heavy utility congestion to insure the validity of the alignment.
G&AI completed 91 permanent right-of-way documents, 20 temporary construction documents, and 21 off right-of-way access easement documents and have begun the right-of-way staking and borehole staking phases of the project.
All easements were delivered on time upon an extremely compressed schedule.
