Trail Opening Celebration. What A Ride!

Lumos would like to thank all who joined us at the Ash to Kings Canyon Trail Opening.

Congratulations to Carson City, Muscle Powered, the US Forest Service, and all of the volunteers who made this trail possible. What a ride!!!

Lumos provided basemapping, design, construction staking, and construction oversight for two bridges over Ash and North Kings Canyon Creeks on this 7-mile single track soft-surface trail on the west side of Carson City. This non-motorized trail is on the east slope of the Carson Range, rises to an elevation of 6,700 feet and provides outstanding views of Carson City. The sawn timber bridges are 22 feet long and span the floodplains of the creeks. Trail and bridge design was a collaborative effort between Carson City, the US Forest Service, and Muscle Powered, a local bicycle and pedestrian advocacy group.

3-D Scanning Technology

Lumos now offers an innovative mapping solution that incorporates the most advanced laser/position sensors and cameras to collect survey quality point data quickly and accurately. Our 3D scanning technology offers numerous advantages over traditional aerial mapping and conventional ground surveys.

This method of survey point data collection may be operated day or night, and is capable of accumulating millions of survey points per minute. The resulting full-color point cloud may be stored as an as-built record, used to enhance the design process, or processed further into CAD planimetrics and surface models.

Lumos Awarded Two AWPA
Project of the Year Awards (POTY)

Lumos was awarded two Project of the Year Awards at the 2015 APWA Spring Conference.

The first project award was in the Transportation Category Under $5M for the Robins Street Improvements and Utility Upgrade Project for Eureka County The project faced some stiff competition in this category. The key to the project’s success was in recommending to Eureka’s Public Works Department the Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) process for the project rather than the traditional Design-Bid-Build process. The Robins Street Project was only the second horizontal public works project in the state to use CMAR. It was also the largest public works project in the history of Eureka County.

The second award was in the Environmental Category $5M – $10M for the City of Reno North Virginia Interceptor Improvements, Phase II Project. This project had numerous design challenges that we successfully overcame. The project was a collaborative effort between multiple agencies and entities, including the City of Reno, UNR, NDOT, UPRR, NDEP, TMWA and NVEnergy.
