ABNA has supported large and small projects alike by providing survey technicians to perform a number of survey activities such as route surveys, topographic surveys, cross-sections and profiles, and establishing existing, proposed centerline alignments, record research, boundary surveys and adjustments, plotting collected field information, establishing 1st and 2nd order controls, right-of-way monuments, land use determination, Boundary, ALTA, complex construction staking, layout and as-builts. ABNA’s survey department consists of five survey crews, a field manager, a survey research technician, the survey manager and three additional licensed surveyors.  ABNA employs a wide array of survey equipment, which enables the expeditious completion of projects.  These instruments include five full Trimble GPS units, five Nikon Total Station Units equipped with the latest TDS data Collectors, digital levels and a variety of other conventional survey equipment.  Additionally, ABNA’s survey staff have extensive experience in the use of state of the art software such as Microstation, Autocad, Geopak, MapInfo, Manifold, STAR*NET TDS Survey Link, and Trimble Geomatics Office.

We have LiDAR services, a ground-based 3D High Definition LIDAR Laser Scanning,  to continue to utilize innovation and advanced technologies to exceed our client’s expectations. LiDAR is a light, imaging, detection and ranging system which provides high definition surveying for planning purposes, buildings, transportation infrastructure, construction, as-builts, and engineering surveys via three dimensional (3D) scanning. Each scanned pixel is assigned an xyz coordinate to create exceptional accuracy, high resolution details, with a cost effective delivery in the shortest amount of time.  See more on LiDAR

IL 159 Phase I & II Habitat for Humanity St. Louis Urban Development
The New I-64 Design Build Lambert International Airport Runway 11R 29L

IL 159 Phase I & II

Owner: Illinois Department of Transportation

The IDOT Route 159 project covered approximately 1.75 miles of improvements extending from S. Morrison Ave north through Collinsville to the Belt Line Road intersection. Improvements consisted of full depth patching, 2 ¼” milling, replacing with ¾” leveling binder course and 1 ½” surface course. The intersection at Beltline was also widened to accommodate a new right turn lanes from Pine Lake Road to IL 59, a right turn from Beltline to IL 159 and from IL 159 to Pine Lake road going west. An additional left turn lane was added to IL 159 to Beltline road. The project also involved 3R intersection reconfiguration at Beltline Road. All new islands and signals were installed at this intersection. Overall improvements will increase the roadway’s capacity with two through lanes in each direction and thereby reduce accident rates at known high accident locations. ABNA prepared the Phase I study and performed Phase II engineering services for this project. Responsibilities included route surveys, utility reconnaissance, IDS, NEPA process, Drainage study, structure reports and TSL plans. For the phase II contract, ABNA prepared preliminary and final contract plans including plan and profile sheets, specifications, estimates, roadway design geometrics, drainage design, pavement design, pavement marking, Maintenance of Traffic (MOT) and new detector loops.


Habitat for Humanity St. Louis Urban Development Design

Owner: Habitat for Humanity, St. Louis

ABNA provided field reconnaissance, survey and civil design for nearly 30 LEED Platinum certified homes with an additional 24 currently under construction. These new homes incorporate green concepts that are not yet common to St. Louis such as Geothermal Heating and Rain Gardens. The partnership of Habitat’s efforts and ABNA’s rain garden design which incorporate water purification and rain harvesting into the landscape are helping to shape policy for the local sewer district, which has authority for water conveyance for two counties in the region. These homes have provided a dramatic transformation of a community that was overrun with vacant properties and has also provided an opportunity to educate new homeowners on their environmental footprint and the importance of living environmentally conscience

The New I-64 Design/Build

Owner: Missouri Department of Transportation
Client: Parsons

This fast paced Project included a complete reconstruction of I-64/Hwy40  and its associated appurtenances. This $535 million Capital Project is located over a 12 mile stretch of Missouri’s Interstate.  ABNA provided engineering design including structural, drainage and utility designs.  The structural design included the I-170 flyways, several bridges and a pedestrian tunnel ; drainage design entailed accommodating flow for the new pavement including several retention ponds; and utility design entailed relocations for more than 20 individual utilities within the corridor such as for fiber, cable, sewer, water, electric and gas.  In addition, ABNA provided inspectors and field technicians during the infrastructure’s construction.


Lambert International Airport Runway 11R 29L

Owner: Lambert Airport Authority
Client: City of St. Louis

This design project will yield a new 9,000-foot long x 150-foot wide Portland Cement Concrete runway (Runway 12R-30L) and two 75-foot wide parallel taxiways. The runway and taxiways are designed for Category III approaches and to accommodate aircraft Airfield Design Group (ADG) Group V. Additional design components include the runway and taxiway lighting and electrical distribution system, a deicing apron at each end of the new runway, supporting deicing facilities such as a glycol collection system, the airfield perimeter fence and security system, and airfield service roads. Each apron is designed to simultaneously accommodate three Boeing 757-300 aircraft. As one of the design team members, ABNA Engineering, Inc. was responsible for grading, paving, sub-surface drainage, pavement marking, and site development for vault buildings including retaining walls, and alignments and plan-profile for various electric and communications duct banks both existing and proposed runways and taxiway complexes.
