Design

Rodriguez's engineering design team focuses on bringing value to real estate developments through strong relationships, innovation and experience.

Geospatial

We pride ourselves on being experts in utilizing user-friendly and powerful technology to collect infrastructure data and create useful geographic information that our clients can use to make better-informed decisions. 

Information Management

The first step in improving infrastructure management is to have an accurate inventory of what assets you own and where they are.  Paper maps, paper forms, 3x5 cards, and spreadsheets were useful tools to inventory assets in the 1900's but it's time to move on. 

Civil Engineering

Rodriguez's engineering design team focuses on bringing value to real estate developments through strong relationships, innovation and experience.  We devise creative solutions to transform your visions into built environments using cost-efficient methods.  From small-town infrastructure to federal design-build projects, and from mixed-use communities to urban in-fill projects, Rodriguez’s expertise and complete in-house design capabilities enable our clients to develop projects quickly and cost-effectively.  We provide a full range of site  and civil engineering services, from site selection and conceptual design to construction drawings and construction support services, with a focus on achieving and exceeding your development project goals.

Infrastructure Mapping & Analysis

Rodriguez's mission is to deliver vital civil engineering and geospatial services that strengthen our Nation's infrastructure and improve our natural resources. The first step in improving infrastructure management is to have an accurate inventory of what assets you own and where they are.  Paper maps, paper forms, 3x5 cards, and spreadsheets were useful tools to inventory assets in the 1900's but it's time to move on. 

Rodriguez works with infrastructure owners to develop cost effective and scalable solutions for collecting and inventorying infrastructure data. We focus on understanding each organization's needs and resources (human and financial).  Our goal is to develop tools that integrate with existing systems of record and become a seamless part of the organization. 

Our information management staff consist of engineers and planners that have hands-on experience working with the following infrastructure:

  • Potable Water & Wastewater
  • Stormwater, Green Stormwater Infrastructure, & Waterways
  • Energy (Natural Gas, Electric, Steam)
  • Transportation (Roadways, Signs, Traffic Signals, Light Poles, ADA Ramps)
  • Pedestrian Networks (Trails, Sidewalks, Bike Lanes, Bike Stations)
  • Communications (LANs, WANs, Poles, Towers, cables)

We develop accurate inventories of infrastructure assets that are managed in geospatial databases that contain critical information such as: capacity, size, age, condition, service frequency, etc. These geospatial databases are then integrated with existing information systems (i.e. customer relationship management (CRM),  work order management, financial, SCADA, etc.).

3D Laser Scanning

Innovative designs start with a comprehensive understanding of existing conditions. 
The geospatial team at Rodriguez utilizes the power of 3D Laser Scanning to support almost every facet of our operation.  3D scanners enable our surveyors to safely capture extremely detailed information, indoors and outdoors, and allow our designers and clients to make better-informed decisions. Below are just some of the ways we are using 3D scanners:
Markets:
Architectural, Building – RetroBIM, Civil Infrastructure, Construction, Historic Preservation, Industrial/Plant, Land Surveying, Landscape Architecture, Public Art,  Site and Urban Planning
Services:
2D Modeling, 3D Animations, 3D Modeling, ADA Compliance Surveys, As-Built Surveys, Asset Inventory, BIM Conversion, Construction Documentation, Deformation Analysis, Facility Management, GIS Integration, Land Surveying, Photogrammetry, Terrestrial Laser Scanning, Web Publishing & Hosting via Faro Webshare

Drone (UAS) Mapping

Small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS), provide an integrated end-to-end surveying, mapping, and data collection/visualization solution. Our goal is to utilize drone technology to safely, efficiently, and accurately collect high-resolution imagery and geospatial data that allows our clients to make better-informed decisions.  Below are just some of the ways we are using drones:
Stockpile Volumetric Measurements:
Small Unmanned Aerial Systems are enabling a fundamental change in how stockpile volumetric computations are performed. Our team creates accurate three dimensional models of stockpile areas using high-resolution cameras mounted on sUAS'. From these 3D models, accurate volumetric computations are derived in a fraction of the time using conventional measuring equipment. Utilizing sUAS result in a more affordable solution for improved accuracy and non-disruptive data collection. 
Site Mapping:
Imagine the value of site planning with high-resolution imagery and 3D data that is only a day old.  Small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS) provide the capability to do ad hoc site mapping.  sUAS data can be quickly produced to allow the project development team make better informed decisions on everything from: site layout, roadway design, stormwater management practices, erosion control approaches, and much more.
