Topographical Surveys, R/W Plan Development, R/W Acquisition Mgt INDOT Prequal 6.1, 12.1, 11.1

Topographical surveys are completed in order to obtain all existing ground features and elevations. All existing ground features are located, and the Indiana Underground Protection Services is contacted to have all utilities within the area located. Once these utilities are marked in the field Northpointe locates these utilities to be shown on the survey. Northpointe also contacts all utility companies within the area to obtain utility maps showing their utility locations. Topographic surveys include storm and sanitary sewers, manholes and inlets, including the depths and sizes. Topographical surveys are based upon a USGS Benchmark and will show spot elevations along with contours with one-foot intervals. The base survey is enhanced with legal rights of way information with existing plat and deed information for recording and acquisitions. We have staff to simultaneously run five(5) full time survey crews

Roadway Design / Trail Design / Sidewalk & Ramp Design INDOT Prequal 8.1

Roadway designs are completed in line with the INDOT manual and our team encourages client interaction and approval for every stage. Every design includes a thorough review of utilities and possible conflicts with other projects. This effort includes public and private utilities, traffic control, adjacent right of way, adjacent local agencies and stakeholders, drainage, and value engineering. We are well experienced with single lane and multilane roadways, geometrics, roadside safety features, signage, clear zone, super elevations, and intersection improvement.

Sub-Surface Utility Engineering & Utility Coordination & Railroad Coordination INDOT Prequal 16.1

Providing subsurface utility engineering (SUE) and utility coordination for your project. This scope of service will be tailored to a project need and deliverables and may include utility coordination per INDOT manual, and SUE per ASCE guidelines. During SUE, the utilities will be designated as quality levels A, B, C, or D and a report will be provided. This service may also include ground penetrating radar investigations and test holes depending on the complexity of a project. Utility Coordination following the INDOT manual will continue through a work plan being completed, which in many instances will carry over into the construction portion of a project. Our team’s experience includes successfully completing over thirty of these type projects within the past nine months.
