National Training Center
Greenhorne & O’Mara, Inc.
Special design considerations were required
since storm drains couldn’t be used. Dedicated
reverse osmosis water
systems were required in
addition to domestic
water supply systems,
due to high levels of
arsenic in the water.
G&O has been working with Clark Pinnacle
to design the infrastructure for two communities in the National Training Center on Fort
Irwin in California. It surveyed about 800
acres and prepared ALTA surveys. The surveys
were done using photogrammetric methods
and checked with field-run methods.
MicroStation was used in the design of
streets, utility systems (including water and
sewer), and the grading of about 58 acres. It
was also used to convert CAD files to
AutoCAD format to facilitate the coordination with the other design team members.
The conceptual design
for Crackerjack Flats was
initiated in late 2002, and
the construction documents were completed
by July 2004. As of this
writing, The Fort Irwin
Town Center is currently
in the design phase, and
date is May 2005. ;
Site Design System
Korea Agricultural and Rural Infrastructure
Corporation (KARICO) developed an IT system based on Bentley MX software to support design of agricultural and industrial
complexes, cultural districts, and more. The
system is used for creation of 3D topographi-cal models from survey data, as well as road
design, quantity calculation, and other functions.
The system’s 3D capabilities have improved
planning accuracy and design quality.
Additionally, the system has reduced time and
labor required for design. Since its development in 2001, the system has been used to
design 57 cultural districts and 17 industrial
and agricultural complexes. ;
