Surveying Surveying Bursich - Sharing your Vision

Our licensed surveyors have been providing comprehensive surveying services to private and public sector clients for more than 40 years. We have conducted boundary and topographic surveys and construction stakeout services for projects including residential, commercial, retail, institutional, industrial, transportation, and municipal. We believe in frequent communication to ensure that your specific project needs are addressed.

Bursich is equipped with the latest technologies including Global Position System (GPS) technology and electronic distance measuring equipment. In 2007, we began offering Spatial Imaging, better known as 3D Laser Scanning. Bursich was at the forefront, as only a handful of engineering firms in southeastern Pennsylvania had adopted this technology and even fewer were offering it as a service. Our surveyors are constantly seeking ways to improve customer service through the use of the latest surveying technology.

National Cemetery of the Alleghenies

National Cemetery of the Alleghenies Closeup

Bursich worked as a subcontractor to Old Philadelphia Associates, completing boundary and topography surveys for the National Cemetery of the Alleghenies in Bridgeville, PA. The 292-acre site, formerly known as Morgan Farm, was acquired by the U.S. Department of Military and Veterans Affairs and eventually converted into the second national veterans' cemetery in Pennsylvania. The cemetery provided burial options to approximately 329,000 veterans and their families living in the Pittsburgh area within 75 miles of the site.


27 Cellular Tower Sites

National Cemetery of the AllegheniesBursich Associates was engaged by NEP Telephone to provide land surveying and civil engineering service for the installation of 27 new cellular tower sites in various municipalities throughout Wayne and Susquehanna Counties in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Survey crews provided topographic survey of each site/lease area showing all the existing features and terrain. The surveys covered a 150-foot-by-150-foot area and included topography for the proposed access road. Engineers then designed and prepared construction site plans showing the site layout and grading along with erosion and sedimentation controls in conjunction with reviewing the FCC NEPA Compliance checklist to see if any environmental issues have an effect on the site. Plans were submitted to the local municipality for review and approvals. Survey crews then followed up with construction stakeout of the tower foundation and leg locations, shelters, access road grading and fence locations. As-built plans of the site and legal descriptions of lease area and access road concluded the scope of work for each site.


SEPTA Norristown High Speed Line Slope Stabilization

SEPTA Norristown High Speed Line Slope Stabilization

Bursich provided professional surveying services to support an emergency analysis and repair project that threatened the operation of SEPTA's critical Norristown High Speed Line. Heavy rains had compromised the integrity of slopes adjacent to the tracks, resulting in temporary shutdowns. The firm worked as a subconsultant to HNTB Corporation as a task order in September 2011 under the team's three-year open-ended General Engineering Contract. Bursich performed boundary and topographic survey of the parcels along the Norristown High-Speed Line located between Conestoga and Roberts Roads in Radnor Township, Delaware County, PA. Construction stakeout of the right-of-way location was also required. Bursich worked closely with HNTB to determine the scope of the project and exactly what survey data was required to support the needs of SEPTA and the geotechnical engineer. In addition to the tight time frame, site access was further complicated by heavy rain and its impact on survey equipment. The project was completed in a matter of weeks, preventing major interruption to service. SEPTA was ultimately satisfied with the timeliness and accuracy of the work performed.
