This project consisted of ground control and aerial mapping for over 2,200 acres of ranch land for planning of future wastewater conveyance and storage facilities. Deliverables included #D, 2D and DTM mapping files in AutoCAD format on a horizontal datum NAD83 and vertical datum NGVD29, as well as digital color ortho-photography at 0.25-foot pixel.AEC was contracted to map the project area consisting of 2,200 acres.

The Tahoe Truckee Unified School District (TTUSD) completed the construction of their Transportation Maintenance Facility (TMO) in Fall 2003. AEC was involved in the survey, civil design, and portions of the permitting for this project. The TMO facility proposed new construction to house the TTUSD Transportation Department Administration Facilities, enclosed parking for 6 to 14 school buses, a vehicle repair facility for the maintenance and repair of school buses and other District vehicles, and a Transportation Department refueling facility. Additionally, on site parking was provided for public parking with 17 standard stalls and two accessible stalls, employee parking with 74 standard stalls and one accessible stall, and outside parking for 40 standard 40' school buses. The AEC survey department provided base mapping for planning, civil design, and the construction staking for this project, as well as legal descriptions and exhibits to accommodate the lease of the land to TTUSD. This required research of title reports, deeds, existing easements, and assessor's maps.

AEC completed aerial control surveys, coordination of aerial mapping products, and route surveys for the proposed realignment of Highway 89 south of Tahoe City.

AEC provided surveying services for the Highway 267 Northstar Right Turn Lane for Northstar-at-Tahoe constructed in the Fall 2000. The project required the surveying, permitting, and civil design of a right turn lane from State Highway 267 onto Northstar Drive. AEC provided coordination with Placer County and Caltrans in the preparation of plans for work within both agencies' right-of-way. AEC staff completed project surveys, a legal description and plat for an offer of dedication to Caltrans, civil design and final as-built plans.

The USFS contracted with AEC to design this project to provide suitable access along 4 miles of historic but dilapidated railroad grade, to accommodate a Type III Forest Service fire engine. This would result in access for forest fuels reduction and emergency access for the Glenbrook area. The road design required a number of specific details for crossing wet or environmentally sensitive areas, and geocells were utilized to stabilize these areas. The roadbed was approximately 12-feet in width in natural terrain with over 30% existing cross slopes. This resulted in significant retaining wall designs in certain locations to support the roadbed. An alternative analysis was completed for the required retaining walls, design alternatives required approval from the Nevada State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO). The AEC team prepared the roadway log, retaining wall design report, and plans and specifications for the project.

AEC was retained to create Monumentations of and Record of Surveys for several USFS-owned parcels in locations around the basin.

The project includes consulting and engineering support services through certification of the EIR for the updated Master Plan, which includes existing and proposed improvements for utilities, ski lifts, snowmaking, and roads.

This project consisted of utilizing aerial and ground survey information to create a site plan for the the entire Homewood property (approximately 1,500 acres). The site plan was compiled to meet TRPA requirements for coverage and land capability verification as well as future planning for the Homewood Mountain Resort.

This project consisted of utilizing aerial and ground survey information to create a site plan for Granlibakken Resort. The site plan was created for submittal to TRPA for verification of the remaining coverage within the 62-acre resort. Extensive research regarding the ownership, easements, paper streets, and land capability was required for this project.

Auerbach Engineering Corporation worked with Alpine Meadows in developing a lift alignment for the Sherwood Chair, completed in 2005. Support services necessary for TRPA and Placer County approval were provided by AEC as well as a drainage analysis for the entire resort and surrounding amenities for the creation of a phased BMP and Snow Management Plan.
