Sci-Tek's four principal areas of expertise combine synergistically to offer clients a single source for answers that create a better world for all.

Surveying and Mapping

Sci-Tek has an experienced team of licensed surveyors and support staff available to meet all of your project requirements. Fully equipped with robotic total station and GPS equipment, our services include:

Boundary, Topographic, Aerial Control, Wetland, and As-built Surveying & Mapping Services

We offer complete survey services for land development; transportation projects; commercial, and institutional buildings; infrastructure such as airports, water, and wastewater treatment plants; residential structures and subdivisions; and mapping of large areas.


Relevant Projects Include:

Topographic Survey of Oakwood & Batavia Streets for the Rosedale Runoff Reduction Project: Sci-Tek provided a topographic survey for the Rosedale Runoff Reduction Project Site in Pittsburgh. The purpose of the project was to design and construct green stormwater infrastructure at various locations along Oakwood and Batavia Streets. Sci-Tek conducted a topographic survey to show existing conditions, utility locations, observations in the field, and contours shown on a 1-foot contour interval. The scope of work included a PA 1CALL to obtain all utility information, a review of aerial photography of the site and any additional information, a topographic survey to collect the required field data (including all required “down” measurements of storm inlets and sanitary sewer manholes), and topographic survey drawing preparation.

Topographic Survey for Renovation and General Repairs of the Southwestern Veterans Center: Sci-Tek provided a topographic survey of the existing site features for a project to design renovations and general repairs of the Southwestern Veterans Center Parking Lot in Pittsburgh, specifically, to repair an enlargement of a bituminous pavement parking lot area that was in disrepair. The bituminous pavement had numerous surface failures including but not limited to insufficient subbase and bituminous material thickness. The purpose of the project also included containment of stormwater from a hillside east of the site to prevent runoff onto the parking lot, extension of the lot to include 14 additional spaces, and construction of a side-walk area to the bus stop on site.

Construction Stakeout

We provide surveying and staking services for various stages of construction, including staking specific elements for roadways, bridges, buildings, and utilities. These elements typically include curb and roadway; building corners; storm, sewer and water lines; and erosion and sedimentation features among others items.

Relevant Projects Include:

Construction Stake Out For the EOD Pad at Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT): Sci-Tek provided construction stake out services for a proposed access road, Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) Pad, and related E&S features related to construction of the road and pad. To do this, vertical and horizontal control were established local to the site, by tying into the airport’s existing control monumentation (PACS and SACS). The scope of work for this project included research of the surveying standards and location of airport control monumentation, office set up of stake out points, and field survey, including establishment of new control near the site, initial stakeout for clearing/grubbing purposes, and final stake out and grading.

Real Estate Services

Sci-Tek provides real estate related services inclusive of flood insurance elevation certificates, deed research and legal descriptions in support of property acquisition and title insurance.
