Multiple locations across Vermont

Cross Consulting Engineers was retained to perform a five year indefinite quantity contract for boundary surveys for the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) located in Colchester, VT.  NRCS was acquiring easements to wetlands from various landowners located throughout Vermont.  CCE is one of only two firms selected in Vermont to perform these surveys.  A total of twenty-eight surveys totaling more than 1400 acres were surveyed and mapped during the first twenty-four months of this project.

This contract has been renewed twice and we are currently still performing these surveys. A total of 42 surveys have been performed for NRCS.

Bakersfield/Fairfield Town Line Survey

Office of the Secretary of State
State of Vermont

Town of Bakersfield, Town of Fairfield

Cross Consulting Engineers was retained by the State of Vermont Office of Secretary of State to perform a boundary survey of the town line between the towns of Bakersfield and Fairfield.  This line exceeded five miles in length and required extensive research to determine its location.  Both towns were unsure of the location of a perpendicular jog in the boundary, which could affect taxes, attendance at school systems and other important town matters.  Cross Consulting Engineers performed the necessary deed research, compiled a photo map of lands adjacent to the town line and performed the field survey.  Ancient fence lines were discovered and the Town boundary was determined, including the location of the jog that was described in the charters for each town.

Upon completion of the research and survey work, monumentation was set along the town line and survey plats were prepared.  Upon completion of the plats, all property owners abutting the town line, as well as the Selectboards of each town, were notified and a public hearing was held.  Both towns accepted the survey and the Vermont Legislature formally adopted the survey as the official town line in the following legislative session.

Public Safety Buildings, Statewide

The State of Vermont has recently constructed five public safety buildings in St. Albans, Derby, New Haven, Bethel, and Westminster, Vermont and retained the services of Arnold and Scangas Architects to perform the project design. CCE was retained by Arnold and Scangas to perform civil engineering site design and permitting on three of the projects and structural engineering design on all five projects. These projects currently house the Vermont State Police barracks and the Department of Fish and Wildlife and are the principal law enforcement offices for these portions of the State. CCE’s services for these projects included design of access off State highways, parking lots, security fencing, drainage systems, utilities, foundation design, yard lighting design and roof framing design. We obtained all necessary site permits, working with the Vermont Department of Buildings and General Services. These modern facilities are great additions to the communities and vast improvements in office space for the Department of Public Safety.
