Paper Mill Basement Differential Leveling, Uncasville, CT
Project Surveyor in the field for differential leveling work on the basement level of a working corrugated cardboard manufacturing facility located on the banks of the Thames River. The crew established elevations within the confines of the mill utilizing a nearby CGS benchmark. This work was done in conjunction with a flood insurance plan for the mill’s valuable infrastructure, and was conducted in highly adverse conditions. Large portions of the mill floor were constantly covered in hot paper pulp and the noise from working machinery meant that hand signals were the only effective means of communication. The end result was a series of scribed and marked lines on the concrete columns in the basement.
