Recent Projects

Pump Station No. 101.07 Replacement

GradyMinor performed the design and construction survey, in addition to the design, permitting, bidding, and construction administration for the replacement of Pump Station (PS) No. 101.07. PS 101.07 was located on the west side of Vanderbilt Drive between 104th Avenue North and 103rd Avenue North, adjacent to a saltwater canal in Naples Park. The pump station was difficult to access, in a location that makes wastewater spills difficult to contain, and did not meet current Collier County Utility Standards. The County acquired a site within Naples Park for the new PS approximately 200 feet east of Vanderbilt Drive.

City of Cape Coral Shared-Use Non-Motorized (SUN) Trail

GradyMinor provided the survey for the Florida Shared-Use Non-motorized (SUN) Trail Van Buren/El Dorado/Kismet Parkway Multi-Use Trail project. This FDOT funded project consists of a 12-foot wide multi-use trail on the north side of Van Buren Parkway from Burnt Store Road to El Dorado Boulevard; on the east side of El Dorado Boulevard from Van Buren Parkway to Kismet Parkway; and on the north side of Kismet Parkway from El Dorado Boulevard to Nelson Road; approximately 6.5 miles. This project survey included bathymetric survey of the Zanzibar, Loch Ness, and Eureka Canals.

Oyster Harbor

For the Oyster Harbor at Fiddler’s Creek (Phases 1-3) Project, consisting of 178 acres GradyMinor’s surveying tasks included taking the project from design to completion of the single family homes. GradyMinor performed design and topographic survey for engineering design and permitting for each of the three subdivisions. We prepared the subdivision plats and replat for the lakes, roadways, and single family lots. We worked with the construction contractors to provide construction stakeout and as-builts for the infrastructure and lakes including roadways, utilities, and stormwater improvements. Once complete, we worked with the homebuilders to provide surveying services for the construction and permitting of single family residences.
