These include first order traversing and elevations for over 70 monuments at O’hare Airport, mapping an enormous amount of Northern Illinois. Building bridges, Tunnels, Buildings, Subdivisions, Highways, Railroads, Navy Pier Expansion, McCormick Place expansion, Fermi Labs NuMi project and Traditional boundary surveying.
