Signature Projects > Government / Municipal


Government projects require a higher level of planning, communication and responsiveness to meet the demands of the municipality and the public which it serves. Gaskins has an extensive list of successful partnerships with municipalities throughout Georgia.

"I have been absolutely satisfied with the performance and fees of Gaskins. We started using a couple of bigger name transportation engineering firms at first. They were not only terribly expensive and slow but didn't seem to be able to listen to what we needed to do. Gaskins came in and got us back on schedule and within budget. They understand the real world and what local officials have to deal with. I warmly recommend them to anyone in need of civil engineering services."

Cedarcrest Road Widening & Utility Realignment
Paulding County DOT
This project consisted of the realignment and widening of approximately 4,600 l.f. of existing county roadway, from a rural two lane roadway to a divided median urban roadway. The right-of-way increased from 50 to 100 feet. The design included horizontal and vertical alignment, grading, storm water drainage, and erosion control. The project also included the replacement of existing water line with a 12" main and Gaskins provided construction oversight.
Chastain Meadows Regional Detention Facility
Cobb County
The project consisted of the construction of a dam 18 feet high, 1,000 feet in length along Noonday Creek. Gaskins provided control points for surveying during design and construction. A field run topographic survey was created of existing conditions for design and it was continuously updated during construction to balance the earthwork. Staking was provided for a sewer outfall relocation, grading, access roads, creek relocation, and an outlet control structure. Finally, an as-built of the dam and utilities was created.
Cherokee County Airport
Cherokee County
The project included surveying for the expansion of the taxiway. Gaskins provided staking for clearing limits, grading, ponds, stormwater system, and taxiway layout.
Clarkdale Historic District Streetscape Project
City of Austell & Clarksdale Neighborhood Associations

Clear Creek Recreation Complex
Gilmer County BOC
This project consisted of a 25 acre recreation facility, which includes 92,000 CY of cut for mass-grading, 1,000 linear feet of private drive, parking lot with more than 200 spaces, one multi-use field, four baseball fields with walkways, and a building site for a future gymnasium. The civil site design used vegetated storm water ditches to limit the amount of pipe needed for storm water conveyance. Gaskins provided construction administration and management from planning to construction, including NPDES monitoring.
Cobb Safety Village Park
Cobb County
The facility is an interactive, state-of-the-art environment to educate children about traffic, pedestrian and fire safety. Gaskins developed a site plan that features miniature electric cars on scale-sized roads with sidewalks, crosswalks, railroad crossings, and residential and commercial areas. Gaskins also incorporated prominent County landmarks to give the site a unique and local feel.
Dobbins AFB
U.S. Airforce
Gaskins has provided a variety of surveying services spanning many years on a base that occupies over 1,900-acres. Examples include a topographic survey 200 feet wide of a runway to repair a failing storm water system; a topographic survey of a 2 acre dam before and after construction; and staking the location of the localizer and check points at the end of a runway.
Dunwoody Sidewalk Project
City of Dunwoody
The project consisted of 5,000 linear feet of new sidewalk design along existing city streets. This project included a topographic survey which was used as a base map for the design. The design then was closely coordinated with the City of Dunwoody Public Works Department, and the design was done to work around existing utilities and landscaping as much as possible in order to facilitate a close cooperation between the City and the citizens impacted by the installation of the proposed sidewalks.
East Cobb Baseball Complex
East Cobb Baseball, Inc.
The 30 acre project included the development eight ball fields, two restroom and concession areas, batting cages, maintenance buildings, and parking.
