  • Highlights of Our Latest Survey Projects


    AGP Grain Loading Facility Expansion Project

    Berglund, Schmidt & Associates (BSA) was selected to provide Civil Engineering and Land Surveying services.

    The Land Surveying has included topographic and utility surveying for design and construction staking for all the facilities.

    Since BSA's office is only minutes away from the project site, we are able to provide quick and cost effective services as requested, thus allowing the contractor to better schedule his activities.

    Port of Grays Harbor Rail Improvement Project

    Following meetings with the RailPros, Inc. team, a route was identified and survey limits were established. BSA then performed the following tasks:

    Provided a project specific itemized vertical control network tied to existing PGH survey control
    Requested one-call utility locates and a private locate as needed
    Reviewed and checked utility markings with available record utility drawings
    Performed field mapping for the topographic survey
    All field work was transferred to the computer, checked, and was then drafted using AutoCAD Civil 3D 2009
    Once the drafting was checked in the field, it was emailed to RailPros, Inc. for design

    Additional tasks were:
    • Coordinating with on-going construction activities at the Port
    • Assisting RailPros, Inc. with ensuring the adjoining WSDOT SR520 Pontoon Construction Site design work was compatible with the rail design.
