Surveying Projects

Geospatial Work

Honor Engineer Co. has performed on many high-profile projects in government, private, utility and healthcare markets. Hover over or click on a project below for more information.

Indiantown Gap National Cemetery Expansion

Survey and Stormwater

Honor Engineer Co. is performing as a subconsultant on the Phase 5 development project.  Honor is performing geodetic survey, aerial ground control and mapping coordination, supplemental mapping survey, and boundary location of the site. Honor is also providing stormwater management design, erosion and sediment control plans, and is responsible for securing a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit, for master planning and the 30-acre expansion area.

Penn State Health Hershey Medical Center Emergency Room Expansion

Construction Consulting and layout

Honor recommended and was responsible for accurately locating and verifying the horizontal and vertical positions of columns and cap plates of the existing hospital facilities, which were set for future construction. This information was utilized to size and orient the proposed steel structure addition. Layout was then provided for the new steel columns for the proposed addition, utilities, and other site work. Topographic and utility surveys were provided to verify existing conditions of the site, including an enclosed walking bridge to ensure proper clearances.


Topographic Survey

The surveyors of Honor Engineer Co. performed a topographic survey for the stream area and bridge structures for hydrologic/hydraulic analysis of the Conococheague Creek. Honor utilized GPS and conventional surveying methods for a topographic cross-section survey of over 1,000 feet of stream and collected detailed bridge information. 

Northside Crossing ALTA Survey and Aerial Mapping

Survey and Drone Imagery

Honor Engineer Co. conducted a boundary and topographic survey which met the 2016 ALTA/NSPS survey standards. Honor utilized a drone to capture high resolution aerial photography and rectified the imagery to ground control points. Although FAA clearance was not necessary, Honor coordinated with the local airport to ensure a safe flight. Honor collected accurate data on over 36 acres and created detailed mapping. The survey was delivered on-time to meet client settlement.

Palmyra Borough Sanitary Sewer Inventory and Mapping

GIS Data Collection

Honor Engineer Co. created a database of over 500 sanitary manhole features in the Borough. The skilled staff collected accurate RTK GPS positions of the features, as well as detailed attribute information to include invert elevations, pipe information, condition of manholes and photographs. Information was used to create features within GIS. The data was then compiled into a useful interactive project map within ArcGIS. 

Harrisburg University Science Building

Construction Monitoring and Surveying

Harrisburg University is currently constructing an 11-story high-rise building in downtown Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Honor Engineer Co. is providing construction stakeout and consulting services for the new research facility. Honor has verified existing conditions and provided layout for infrastructure and structural components of the high rise. Honor performs drone inspections and 3D laser scans of the historic Keystone Building to document plumbness of building and perform analysis to determine construction disturbance. 

Mount Rose Tract Boundary and Topographic Survey

Boundary and Topographic Survey

Honor Engineer Co. performed boundary and topographic surveys of a 50+ acre tract of land in York, PA. Honor collected existing features including roads, utilities, buildings, and grades. Challenges included positioning the rights-of way for Interstate 81 and Mount Rose Avenue as the interchange was under construction. The site contained a significant number of utility easements which were located and accurately shown on the plan.  The data is being utilized for the site design of a major medical facility.


Topographic and Utility Survey

Honor performed a topographic survey of areas around a comfort station and a functional horse barn for the design of a new sewer line. Honor located topographic features including test pit locations, utilities, and other site improvements. Detailed information, including pipe sizes, types and invert elevations, of a 15-manole sanitary sewer run was collected as part of this survey.  


Geodetic Control and CAD Services

Honor Engineer Co. conducted a geodetic control and supplemental field surveys for the mapping of a 313-acre site along a 2.6-mile corridor. We set 18 aerial control targets and created a network utilizing RTK and static GPS methods. Honor then gathered field data and created easement plats for a new section of sanitary sewer. Honor plotted deed geometry and adjusted deed lines to match field evidence. Honor created 28 easement plats in AutoCAD and wrote legal descriptions for temporary and permanent easements for construction.
