PUBLIC WORKS projects are a broad category of infrastructure projects, financed and constructed by government agencies, for commerce and transport, recreational, and public health and safety uses in the greater community. They include public buildings; water supply; waste water; utilities; and air, ground, and water modes of transportation related improvements.

AMTRAK TRAIN STATION IMPROVEMENTS, GROVER BEACH, CA   The proposed parking lot expansion, station improvements, and water line extension required Praxis surveyors to perform a detailed topographic survey of the three-acre site and deliver a Civil 3D dataset including a drawing, surface, and points. In addition, we performed a boundary establishment survey of the City owned parcels, as well as the UPRR right of way, both of which control the limits of design of new parking lots and building facilities. The train station occupies parcels that were created by a map nearly one hundred years ago, and have not been resurveyed since. The boundary determination was challenging and triggered the filing of a Record of Survey map.
