MEC provided surveying services to assist in the conversion of an existing 370 acre ethanol production facility into a corn milling facility.  The range of survey services included legal surveys; photogrammetric control; establishing and maintaining a high accuracy project control network; producing topography base drawings for design; construction layout for paving, railroad tracks, buildings and utilities; vertical layout for steel erection and equipment installation; layout and as-builts for structural anchor bolts; and post–construction record utility drawings. With $500 million invested on this site, accurate and timely survey was a must!
