For Phase I on the development project, beginning in 2010, Pedersen & Pedersen, Inc. provided complete surveying and civil design services for the construction of 49 new affordable housing units scattered throughout several blocks of the Garfield neighborhood in the City of Pittsburgh, comprising a total of approximately three acres. Pedersen & Pedersen was selected in 2014 to complete Phase II of the project, comprised of an additional 19 units. Phase II is ongoing. Both phases have required extensive coordination between the developer, architect, and regulatory agencies.
Civil design services included the preparation of a site plan, erosion and sedimentation control, grading plan, and site utility plan. P&P obtained permits from Allegheny County Conservation District and PWSA, and assisted with zoning approval.
Survey services included an existing conditions survey of each unit prior to redevelopment, preparation of lot consolidation and subdivision plans for new lots for units as required, as-built surveys of constructed units, and final ALTA/ACSM surveys.
