♦ Surveying Projects in  the Public / Private Sector 



Dava & Associates, Inc. has completed American Land Title Association (ALTA) surveys of 9 lots and non-ALTA surveys of 6 lots for acquisition by the Town of Prescott Valley, Arizona. The Town of Prescott Valley was platted as 20 separate subdivision units between 1966 and 1971, covering approximately 5-1/2 square miles. Numerous surveying and engineering firms were involved in the process, and discrepancies between record and monumented land boundaries were numerous. Completion of ALTA and non-ALTA surveys for the Town has required the resolution of discrepancies and/or the establishment of land boundaries with incomplete and sometimes erroneous monumentation. 



Dava & Associates, Inc. has completed numerous projects for the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) for the purpose of developing engineering construction plans and acquiring right-of-way and/or easements. Projects include US-95 at Gadsen, Arizona, SRB-40 eastbound at Williams, Arizona, and SR-69 from Prescott Country Club to SR-169. Design surveys include establishment of highway stationing, topographic cross-sections, and location of cultural details, improvements and utilities. Right-of-way and easement surveys require the establishment of ownership and location of land boundaries which intersect or abut highway rights-of-way. 



Dava & Associates, Inc. completed an ALTA survey of approximately 26 acres of the former Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad Right-of-Way located in downtown Prescott. The property had extremely vague property descriptions and numerous leases and licenses requiring verification and resolution. The external boundary survey and internal division of the property along occupation and lease lines were completed. 



Dava & Associates, Inc. began the boundary survey and topographic mapping of all City of Prescott properties in the vicinity of Love Field at the Prescott Municipal Airport in early March 1989. The project entailed complete boundary surveys, monumentation, and property legal descriptions for both the rezoning of the airport properties and for the acquisitions of fragmentary, adjacent parcels. Establishment of the airport boundary required resolution of numerous conflicting and confusing deed conveyances. Dava & Associates, Inc. prepared maps and descriptions for leases and easements as part of the project. Additionally, Dava & Associates, Inc. provided AutoCADD-based, one-foot contour intervals, topographic mapping of the airport area for use in construction and development plans. 



Dava & Associates, Inc. completed ground control surveys for topographic mapping procedures. The work involved two different mine site reclamation projects. Horizontal, vertical, State Plane control, and aerial paneling were extensively spread over 10 sections of permitted land. 



A Land Title survey was completed on 237 acres of Arizona State Land Department property and adjoining private parcels during 1983. The survey required resolution of numerous leases and encroachments. The plat was reviewed and approved by State Land Department staff and recorded in the office of Maricopa County Recorder. 



Dava & Associates, Inc. completed surveys and prepared construction plans and specifications for the reconstruction of 1.25 miles of roadway at the Prescott Veterans Administration Medical Center. Roadway reconstruction included evaluation and correction of drainage flooding, ponding, and sediment deposition problems. The flooding and ponding areas were eliminated through profile and cross-section modifications.  Sediment deposition from sources off the primary road system were corrected through profile and cross-section adjustments.   



Dava & Associates, Inc. completed a horizontal and vertical survey control network for the construction of subgrade, footers, columns and walls. Certification surveys of all building columns were completed during construction. Approximately 95 columns were involved. 



Dava & Associates, Inc. completed ground control surveys for topographic mapping procedures. The workload involved 12 square miles of paneling on sectional corners, horizontal and vertical location, and paneling of existing exploration drill holes, and location verification and paneling of existing patented mining claim corners. 



Dava & Associates, Inc. provided surveying services for Runway 11-29 and the Portable T-Hanger Apron Area Design. This project included cross-sections across existing pavement with location of signs, VASI lights, and drainages.  All data were collected in an electronic format using conventional total station and/or global positioning system (GPS) with data provided in an auto-CADD drawing file. This project was completed in 1996. 


Dava & Associates, Inc., also provided design services for Taxiway "Charlie" pavement removal and replacement, and drainage improvements, as follows: Horizontal and vertical control points using the global positioning system (GPS) were set along the length of the   taxiway, and elevations were established using different leveling, including establishing 100-foot stations along the centerline of the taxiway. Cross-sections were taken at 50-foot intervals, plus grade breaks, consisting of centerline, quarter crown, edge of pavement, shoulder, flowline drainage, and approximately 25 feet from edge of pavement. All runway lights, signage and accessories were located, and topographic data collected trigonometrically and in an electronic format. 



Dava & Associates, Inc. provided topographic surveys for Gannett-Fleming,

consulting engineers to the City, for improvements to Iron Springs Road. The purpose of the improvements was to permit a continuous left-turn lane for a major commercial arterial street. Dava & Associates, Inc. survey services provided data collection and mapping of all existing conditions, including pavement sections, curb and gutter, manhole, and utility locations. Right-of-way boundaries and property corners were also established. The survey entailed citing locations and conditions of private buildings, signs, driveways, parking areas, and other structures to be impacted by the street improvements.
