what we do

Topographic Surveying for Design

Preparing reliable site information

Parametrix surveyors provide high quality information on existing site conditions to support design teams. In doing so, we reduce design risks and construction costs. We use the latest equipment and technology to provide reliable documentation of existing topography, above ground structures, and utilities. All features, both manmade and natural, are documented.

Blair Hylebos Peninsula Terminal Redevelopment 
​Tacoma, Washington
Client: Port of Tacoma

Parametrix has provided survey services to the Port of Tacoma through several consecutive “open-order” contracts. For the redevelopment of the Blair Hylebos Peninsula Terminal, we provided complete aerial and ground survey data to multiple consultants leading the civil, transportation, and rail design of new improvements. Our work involved ground control for aerial and LiDAR mapping, hydrographic mapping, ground based design mapping, utility investigation, boundary resolution, and easement determinations. The project included review and analysis of hundreds of parcel ownerships over an area exceeding 3,000 acres and preparation of a comprehensive Record of Survey, involving PLSS monuments, tribal, and riparian boundaries.
