Losurdo Residential Subdivision, Hamptonburgh, NY

Losurdo Subdivision is a 14-lot residential subdivision originally consisting of 221 vacant acres. KC was contracted by the owner and applicant to provide surveying and engineering design services required for approval by the Town of Hamptonburgh Planning Board.

The Losurdo Subdivision is located in an area of environmental sensitivity and includes such constraints as steep slopes, bedrock, and views of the Shawangunk Ridge. KC conducted a boundary and topographic survey, as well as designed two detention and water quality ponds to prevent storm water runoff from entering the wetlands. 

Rehabilitation of North Broadway, White Plains, NY

The project scope consisted of providing a linear topographical survey for approximately one and a half miles of highway corridor. Survey involved coordination with the prime contractor and County to produce mapping integrated with the County GIS, showing all surface utilities, signage, striping, traffic control pads, and sections and profiles at all intersecting streets and driveways. A GPS static and RTK control run was done to establish x, y, z control in NYS State Plane and NAVD 88.

KC also provided digital mapping, including the creation of a 3D triangulated DTM model for the client’s use for design purposes in AutoCAD Civil 3D.

Long Island Railroad Surveying, New York, NY

KC performed ROW survey for the 7 corridors outside of the LIRR ROW for the 60 parcels identified in the draft SEQRA scoping document and performed the field survey necessary to 

locate approximate or precise locations of private and/or public underground utilities. All work was done in accordance with the NYSDOT ROW Mapping Procedure Manual. KC also provided underground utility location/verification within seven corridors located in Nassau County, locating the already marked out utilities, analyzing and plotting the utility plates, and editing utility locations on the photogrammetric mapping provided by the NYSDOT.

CWSRF Corridor Survey, Wappingers Falls, NY

KC prepared the map, plan, and report, and conducted the Environmental Records Review for the Village of Wappingers Falls to secure a hardship loan from the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) section of the Environmental Facilities Corporation. This project scope consisted of providing linear topographical and utility surveys for approximately five miles of roadway corridor within the Village, phased over a five-year period. Ongoing survey began with providing aerial control for photogrammetric base mapping with one foot contour intervals covering the entire Village limits. Ground surveys were performed on surface and subsurface utilities and all planimetric features to supplement this base mapping and to provide sections and profiles along the various right-of-way corridors, which included State and municipal roadways.
