Timber Sky, Flagstaff – Grant was the Designer for this 200-acre, 1500-unit development in Flagstaff which included an infrastructure plan with water and sewer system analysis and design, a drainage report, and stormwater management. His work included preparation of construction estimates as well as construction documents including street design, sewer and water infrastructure, grading and drainage, stormwater management infrastructure. After Woodson provided all planning, surveying and engineering, the project moved to the construction in spring, 2018.
Bus Stop Mobility Improvements, NAIPTA – Grant is the lead designer and CAD technician for this projects which involves infrastructure improvements to improve mobility and accessibility at approximately 42 existing bus stops in Flagstaff. The intent of the project is to improve these stops so that they are in compliance with Federal Transit Administration ADA guidelines. He is responsible for the design and preparation of the construction plans as well as the engineer’s cost estimate.
Apache Sewer, City of Winslow – We provided the survey and design of 2 new 24” diameter sewer alignments to 1) reroute the existing 24” line from underneath residences; and 2) provide for an additional bypass route bored underneath I-40 to the Winslow WWTP. Grant’s work included preparation of easement exhibits and legal descriptions needed for obtaining an encroachment permit from ADOT and utility easements, construction design documents including bid documents with general conditions, contract, bid form and special provisions, plan and profile sheets, approximate quantities, materials, standards and specifications, and bid phase services. A key component of this project is boring a 48-inch sleeve under Interstate 40, with only a .09% slope
The Hills at Slayton Ranch (Doney Park), R&C Capital – Woodson has provided surveying, planning and engineering services for the design and platting of all phases of this development in Doney Park, 12 miles northeast of Flagstaff, beginning in 2003. The most recent phase was completed in 2018 and encompasses 105 acres totaling 42 new home sites with many bordering on the Coconino National Forest. Grant prepared construction plans for roads, drainage, and the water system.
Copeland Regional Detention Basins, Coconino County – Grant was the lead CAD technician for this project which involved designing detention basins to prevent, or limit, overtopping of US 89 north of Flagstaff, AZ. He performed the initial design calculations and the construction cost estimate for use by the county, ADOT, and FHWA. He also prepared the construction plans for the project
GIS Mapping, City of Winslow – Grant managed this effort to migrate our extensive utilities systems data from AutoCAD into GIS. This new map allows City field crews to quickly locate water valves, fire hydrants, manholes, and pipe locations while in the field with user friendly software on a mobile device.
