PHILADELPHIA, PA (TOPOGRAPHIC SURVEY) - Rodriguez Consulting, LLC (“Rodriguez”) was retained by Jacobs Engineering Group, Inc. for Professional Land Surveying services for the Fairmount Water Works Interpretive Center Site Survey. This project required services for a topographic, utility, and site features survey to develop an existing conditions site plan that was used to prepare design and engineering documents for site, landscape, and drainage improvements around the Fairmount Water Works Interpretive Center.    

Rodriguez Contribution
Rodriguez was responsible for providing land surveying services on ten (10) separate assignments with the following scope of work:

  • Topographic Survey – A topographic survey was prepared for the area in accordance with generally acceptable engineering standards and practices. The survey was prepared at an appropriate scale, with a one (1) foot contour interval and spot elevations.
  • Utility Survey – Existing rim, top of grate and invert elevations were obtained for storm and sanitary sewer facilities within project limits. 
  • Utility Coordination – Rodriguez notified PA One Call requesting a Routine Location Request (street mark up) and a Design Notification (utility plans/as-builts) for the project area.
  • Existing Conditions Site Plan Preparation – Rodriguez prepared an Existing Conditions Site Plan of the site incorporating the information obtained via the Topographic Survey. The compiled field information was prepared in a CAD environment and included the preparation of a survey plat drawn at a scale of 1'=20' as required by the client with existing topography being depicted with one (1) foot contour intervals.
