NFE has been working with the Detroit Lions since the summer of 2018, providing land surveying services at Ford Field. NFE along with our partner NOAR Technologies are documenting the existing conditions at the facility, both inside and outside. Two surveying methods are being used to collect information and data – conventional surveying and high definition laser scanning.
NFE was selected by Independence Township to provide engineering design and construction administration for a public pathway along Clintonville Road, between Maybee and Waldon roads. This pathway was created to interconnect other pathways within the Township, and the road as it was, was unsafe to walk or bike on due to heavy traffic and wetlands.
Romeo Community Schools’ voters approved an $86 million, 25-year bond initiative for the district back in May 2016. The school system contracted with architect Integrated Design Solutions who in turn contracted with NFE to provide land surveying and civil engineering services to support the bond initiatives.
NFE was the prime consultant for the City of Birmingham on the Old Woodward Avenue Reconstruction project, providing land surveying, civil engineering, and landscape design services. In addition, NFE provided consulting support in collaboration with the City of Birmingham’s Engineering and Planning departments and other consultants hired by the City early in the project planning phases.
The Eddington Boulevard Realignment project was conceived through a public/private partnership where a developer entered into a PUD agreement with the City of Rochester Hills to develop a new “core” area. This area was to provide services to the adjacent neighborhoods where a more walkable/safer community could be achieved.
From 1999 to 2007, NFE provided civil engineering and land surveying services to both USA Federal Credit Union and T&C Federal Credit Union for new branches in Michigan. In 2008, these two credit unions merged with Genisys Credit Union, a non-profit, member-owned financial institution established in 1936.
Dodge Park reopened on June 28 following months of being closed for renovations that completely rehauled the 51.2-acre park in the City of Sterling Heights. The improvements were due to the Recreating Recreation mileage passed in 2016 by the residents to fund $45 million in amenities at Dodge Park and other city/neighbor parks.
NFE has been working with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) for the last seven years, providing infrastructure improvements to multiple state parks and recreational areas in Michigan (see map). The DNR manages over 100 state parks and recreational areas covering 285,000 acres. In fact, in Michigan, you are never more than an hour’s drive from one.
In the month of May, NFE welcomed eight interns who are joining us for the summer from the universities of Alabama, Michigan State, Michigan Tech and Purdue. Seven are studying civil engineering, and one is concentrating on a double major of electrical engineering and computer engineering. This group of many talents will be providing invaluable assistance to NFE over the summer, and hopefully learning a thing or two.
O’Neal Lake Dam was installed in 1952 by the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to aid in water control and create a wildlife haven. The dam formed O’Neal Lake which was approximately 150 acres in size and became a much-loved paradise for the residents close to the lake and for nature lovers visiting the surrounding Wilderness State Park.
