Pine Mountain - Bentonite Mine
Natrona County, Wyoming
JKC Engineering performs periodic aerial surveys for volumetrics at this bentonite mine. Originally we performed the surveys by GPS but have recently started utilizing UAV's to perform the surveys, speeding up data delivery. In addition, we have provided our client with a much-needed image overlay to communicate our results to the owner and excavator.
Jim Bridger Power Plant
Sweetwater County, Wyoming
JKC conducted a bolt-pattern survey on the exhaust fans at the Jim Bridger Power Plant. Power plant engineers used the information to design replacement fan assemblies. This one-of-a-kind survey was accomplished using a Trimble S6 Robotic Total Station and simple tools like a plumb-bob and offset tools to measure points under the fans while they were still in operation. The survey team at JKC is proud to have accomplished such an intricate task while working in less than ideal surveying conditions and look forward to our next challenge of this type.
Wyoming Medical Center
JKC Engineering was contracted by Haselden Wyoming Constructors, LLC, to provide construction staking for the new West Patient Tower Addition to the Wyoming Medical Center. It had been requested that the grid lines be marked on each of the four floors providing JKC with a new and challenging task. This project was completed utilizing a Trimble S6 Robotic Total Station.
Casper Events Center Ice Arena
JKC Engineering provided surveying support for the construction of the ice rink at the Casper Events Center. We laid out the rink for demolition of the existing concrete floor, mapped the interior of the events center for design of the ice rink and accompanying structures, and staked the ice rink and service conduits and vaults for construction.
Steamboat Point PLSS
Bighorn National Forest, Wyoming
JKC Engineering was awarded a contract with the State of Wyoming Forestry Division to provide surveying services to establish, monument, and provide documentation of survey monuments described for the Steamboat Point Survey Project. This project was located in a township that was originally surveyed in the early 1900's. JKC performed the survey using both GPS and optical surveying methods being performed in a varied environment consisting of heavy tree cover and mountainous terrain, some of which was extreme, making this project very physically challenging.
Collins Street Reconstruction
Teamed with JUB Engineers, who were contracted by the City of Casper, JKC Engineering provided surveying services for the design phase of the project. As part of the Old Yellowstone District Improvements, Collins Street is a major artery of the City of Casper and the community will benefit from the improvements related to this project. JKC services included topographic surveying and base drawing production, right-of-way determination, easement exhibits, and once construction starts we will provide inspection services on the project as required by the City Engineers Office.
