YOUNG & ASSOCIATES, PA have successfully completed over 14-miles of pedestrian and bicycle paths throughout the Sedgwick County metropolitan
area. Funding for these projects have come from local community organizations, municipal CIP programs, and Transportation Enhancement (TE) (known
currently as TA, Transportation Alternatives) and ARRA Federal Grant programs. These civil engineering projects incorporate the elements of; pedestrian
and bicycle traffic; ADA accessibility; environmental landscaping; utility relocation/design; and regulatory review and approval.
Y&A continue to monitor KDOT regulations and other design
standards for public recreational facilities. Y&A is experienced in
the design and use of modular retaining walls, prefabricated
pedestrian bridges, and specialty erosion-control devices. When
properly specified and designed, these features can be used to
improve construction efficiency and the long-term economy of a
project. Y&A utilize AutoCAD Civil 3D™design software to assist
engineers in evaluating the most cost-effective vertical and
horizontal alignments for the project. This software allows
designers to examine alternative
alignments quickly and efficiently. Our design layouts focus on
integrating pedestrian paths into the natural environment and
existing drainage patterns, while making paths safe and
Y&A employs state-of-the-art GPS and conventional total
station survey systems for field data collection, mapping, and
construction staking. Y&A operates the latest Leica GNSS GPS
with Carlson SurvCE GPS/TPS software and Sokkia Set 4E total
station instrumentation. The same personnel performing field
surveys process field data and create base maps for design.
This unique relationship and cross-training between field and
office design eliminates communication issues that can often
develop between office and survey personnel. Y&A's hands-on
approach to design management improves the accuracy and
dependability of construction documents, ultimately saving our
clients both time and expense on the project.
