New Intermediate School

Locating the Right Place for Education

Matrix was responsible for assisting the client with a site feasibility study for a new intermediate school. Matrix visited the potential sites with the client to determine the constraints that may prohibit development of a new school. Sites were ranked based on a point system to provide the North Brunswick Board of Education with the highest ranked site in the township that could potentially house a new school. Based on this ranking, Matrix performed a Phase 1 environmental assessment for the highest ranked site.

Matrix assisted the client with the creation of three different concepts for a new school on the highest ranked site.

A Boundary survey and Topographic survey of the chosen site was conducted for the project. A field traverse was established for this using the latest in both terrestrial and GPS surveying equipment. The topographic surveys conducted were referenced to NAD’83 and NAVD 88 State Plane Coordinate System and the plans were then utilized to prepare a base map for design purposes. Photogrammetric control survey data was provided by Matrix surveyors and the topographic data aerially collected was then QA/QC’ed at critical points of the tract before the preparation of base map. All visible utilities along with inverts and pipe sizes where possible were mapped to the final drawing along with utility mapping obtained from private sources.

Matrix was responsible for producing an Engineer’s Estimate Report, USGS Quad Map, Water Utility Specifications, Hydrant Flow Test, and Utility Plan.
