Jarvis Creek Improvements

Atlas Surveying - Thursday, August 22, 2019

Jarvis Creek Park is a high traffic area on Hilton Head Island that is filled with children, families and those who enjoy the outdoor bike trails and fishing docks. When Hilton Head Island was hit by Hurricane Matthew in 2016, Jarvis Creek was an area that flooded the most. The original design intended for water to flow from ponds into the creek and utilize the pump station to help with flooding if a hurricane occurred. Following the hurricane, the water flow was halted because the flow doors had been sealed shut over time due to sediment build up. This all resulted in Jarvis Creek flooding and caused surrounding businesses to go out of commission for months.  Read More

Batesville Road

Atlas Surveying - Thursday, August 08, 2019

Batesville Road in Greenville County, SC was a two-lane earthen-shoulder roadway facility which had seen an increase in traffic due to the development of adjacent residential communities and a nearby elementary school. In order to accommodate the increase in traffic volume and population, the SCDOT hired Vaughn & Melton to design a center turning lane, bike lanes and sidewalks for this 2-mile stretch which will cost approximately $12million. Anderson Ridge Road will be reoriented to meet Batesville Road at a safer 90-degree angle, and traffic signals will be added there at Roper Mountain Road and at Pelham Falls Drive. The widening will also reroute Batesville Road around Ebenezer United Methodist Church with a new bridge over Rocky Creek. Eagle Construction Company, Inc of Newberry, SC is the general contractor for the project and Atlas Surveying, Inc will serve as the project surveyor. Read More

Atlas Assists with Binaco Tower - Uptown Charlotte

Atlas Surveying - Wednesday, March 20, 2019

Atlas Surveying is very excited to partner with Binaco International Real Estate and the Doerre team on B Tower, a 5-story retail building that will change the face of 5th Street in Uptown Charlotte. When complete, B Tower will be about 15,000 square feet and each floor will have a balcony area overlooking bustling 5th Street and a 5th floor rooftop terrace. This project is on an extremely tight site and presents several challenges.  As part of the project, we will widen the sidewalk to around 11 feet wide all the way to the intersection of Tryon Street. This will allow the neighboring bars and restaurants, as well as B Tower, to use sidewalk space for additional seating. We are very excited to be part of the team creating this truly transformative project for the Uptown area and Charlotte in general. This project will enhance the “restaurant/bar row” vibe on 5th Street between Church and College Streets. Read More

The South Carolina Ports Authority

Atlas Surveying - Wednesday, November 28, 2018

The South Carolina Ports Authority (SCPA) is currently building the only permitted new container terminal on the U.S. East and Gulf Coasts. Since receiving the final permit approvals in 2007, the Ports Authority has already completed preliminary demolition, site preparation and containment wall construction on the new, 280-acre terminal which, at build out, will boost capacity in the port by a full 50%. About 3.7 million tons of crushed rock have been transported by ship to the construction site from a quarry in Newfoundland. The SCPA recently awarded a $53.8 million contract to a joint venture of Cape Romain Construction and McLean Contracting to build a 1,400-foot berth at the terminal. They will construct ship-to-shore gantry crane rail and support beams, a ship fender system, mooring bollards, water service stations, power cable vaults and conduits, an extension of exisitng stone revetments, and other ancillary works. A second 1,300 foot berth will be finished in 2026 and a third in 2032, capable of handling 2.1 million containers annually. While Leatherman's berth will be the same length as the Wando Welch Terminal, the new terminal can handle 18,000-TEU vessels because of a stronger fender (bumpers that absorb the kinetic energy of a vessel against a berth) and cranes capable of lifting 169 feet high and reaching wider, the port authority said. Read More
