Project Overview

MFS Consulting Engineers & Surveyor, DPC (MFS) provided professional land surveying services in support of Colliers Engineering & Design’s Staten Island Lighthouse project.

Staten Island, New York

Project Details

MFS’s survey team performed a boundary survey to locate evidence of property lines, including property markers, monuments, cross cuts, fences, walls, building and curb lines to assist in the determination of the boundary lines. MFS office personnel obtained the Borough’s Topographical Bureau information pertaining to the property lines, Right of Way (ROW) lines, and easements. The results for the boundary line analysis were depicted on the Survey Plan.

A field survey was performed to locate the apparent above ground physical features, such as buildings, curbs, edge of pavement, drives, striping, sidewalks, fences, walls, utility/light poles, street trees, tree lines, and street furniture. First floor/garage floor elevations were determined at doorways. Cross sections of paved surfaces were surveyed at a minimum of 50’ intervals and at low/high points. Spot elevations were obtained at a spacing sufficient to develop contours at an interval of one foot. Breakline features such as top/bottom of curb, edge of pavement, top/bottom of slopes/swales/banks/walls, etc. were located. At waterways the surveys extended to the edge of water.

MFS located surface utilities such as manholes, catch basins, headwalls, valve covers, utility/light poles, hydrants, etc. For storm drains and sanitary sewers, MFS obtained measurements to determine inverts and pipe sizes at accessible manholes and catch basins.
