NYSOGS – Harriman State Office Campus

Chazen completed a boundary survey of the 350-acre Harriman State Office Campus for the purpose of subdividing and conveying portions of the Campus for private development. Chazen also completed a detailed topographic survey and underground utility mark out to support site design and construction.

NYSOPRHP Survey for the Acquisition of Lands of Tobin

Lagrangeville, NY

Chazen completed a property boundary survey of the Tobin property planned for acquisition by NYS and for combination with the adjacent James Baird State Park. The property was comprised of 135 acres of fallow farm land, forested and wetland areas. Chazen utilized Leica network GPS receivers to establish primary site control in NAD83 and NAVD88 datums. Leica robotic total stations were utilized to complete survey traverse and data acquisition. Data reduction, analysis and mapping was completed using AutoCAD Civil 3D software.

Brown’s Beach ALTA/NSPS Boundary Survey

Stillwater, NY

Stillwater’s Brown’s Beach property deteriorated over time, becoming overgrown with vegetation since it was last open in 2007. In recent years, the property was pursued by private developers for housing. However, the Town was able to purchase the 9-acre parcel to return it to public use. Chazen performed an up to date boundary survey as part of the property closing documents. The survey included establishing the riparian boundaries of Saratoga Lake.

In addition, the Town hired Chazen to reengineer and update the entire site infrastructure for parking, erosion and runoff control, marina and banquet facilities, traffic management and ADA compliance. In order to update the site infrastructure, it was necessary to complete an existing conditions topographic and utility survey.

Open Space Institute Boundary Survey and Subdivision Map

Stillwater, NY

Chazen was retained by the Open Space Institute to provide a boundary survey and three lot subdivision of the Westney property, formerly a part of Freeman’s Farm on which the first engagement of the Battle of Saratoga was fought. The purpose of the survey was to monument the boundaries and subdivide the 183-acre parcel to allow donation of a portion to the Saratoga National Historic Park and a portion to the Town of Stillwater for use in developing a trail along the Champlain Canal.

General Electric Solar Parking Lot

Schenectady, NY

As part of a Campus wide topographic and utility survey, Chazen provided survey within the area of the existing Building 273 parking lot for the design of a solar parking lot. Once the design was completed, Chazen provided subsurface utility mark out and construction stakeout which included staking and offsetting each column for the solar arrays. The survey was performed during early mornings and late afternoons since at other times the parking lot was in use.

General Electric expects to generate more than 60M kilowatt hours of electricity over the anticipated 25-year lifespan of the solar array, whose 6,800-panels sit on pillars on rows above a parking lot, forming the largest solar carport in upstate New York.

 

Valley Health Services

Herkimer, NY

Chazen provided an ALTA / ACSM boundary and topographic survey on 221 acres for the development of a new assisted living facility. Other survey tasks, easement mapping and descriptions, construction stakeout and an as-built survey.

 

Union College – Science and Engineering Center

Schenectady, NY

Chazen completed a conventional topographic and utility survey for the design of a new addition to Union’s Engineering and Science Center. After completion of the conventional survey, Chazen was retained by the lead architect to perform a 3D high definition laser scan and provide a point cloud of the exterior of the existing Science and Engineering Center, Wold Center, and  Bailey, Butterfield and Steinmetz Halls.

 

Nevele Tower 3D High Definition Laser Scanning

Wawarsing, NY

Chazen was retained by Nevele-R LLC to provide 3D High Definition Laser Scanning. The scanned areas included the basement level, first floor, second floor and tenth floor Suite of the Nevele Tower. The full exterior of the building was also scanned.  The deliverable was a registered point cloud in REVIT format.

 

John Boyd Thacher State Park – Visitors Center
