RVE to Receive National Recognition Award at the ACEC 2023 Engineering Excellence Awards Gala
RVE provided a single source solution for the design, GIS cartography, GPS surveying, construction management and construction inspection of the repair of beam guide rail attenuators at 91 sites in Middlesex County, New Jersey. RVE worked diligently to evaluate each site, provide designs to contractor J. Fletcher Creamer & Son, Inc., inspect construction activities and provide updated GIS maps to the County of Middlesex. RVE’s teamwork and internal and external collaboration allowed the project, which spanned several municipalities within the County, to successfully finish ahead of schedule and under budget. RVE was tasked with taking a list of sites that the County wanted to address and determining an appropriate repair for each site. Work included the repair of guide rail, attenuators, curbing, sidewalk and HMA pavement in addition to topsoiling, seeding, fertilizing and mulching. RVE also coordinated the maintenance and protection of traffic with the local municipalities to facilitate this work. Damaged guide rails constituted a public safety hazard, making it imperative for repairs to be designed, mapped and constructed in a timely manner. RVE visited each of the sites and created a site plan for every location. Sites were broken down into four categories: repair existing guide rail, upgrade existing guide rail, remove existing guide rail and no repairs necessary
RVE quickly evaluated which sites could simply be repaired to their original conditions and instructed the contractor to begin repairs. As the contractor was making repairs with RVE’s inspectors in the field, RVE addressed the second category of sites, those that required an upgrade.
Some designs required bridge and culvert parapet attachment details and RVE’s engineering team quickly provided these designs.
