North Carolina Research Campus
Client: Castle & Cooke
The North Carolina Research Campus is an extensive mixed-use redevelopment and economic revitalization. The 350-acre site encompasses the entire downtown area of Kannapolis, North Carolina, approximately 20 miles north of Charlotte, and includes the former Cannon Mills/Pillowtex facilities that were demolished to make room for the new campus.
This is a large brownfield site that will become a premier research campus. The original site was a textile plan that was demolished and the new campus will include research and office buildings plus all associated infrastructure necessary for the campus.
LDSI, Inc. started the project in 2005 during the demolition and has provided our full spectrum of services, including boundary surveys, construction stakeout, aerial topography, as well as wet and dry utility locations; blast volume and over excavated area calculations, platting, GIS mapping and analysis. The GIS As-Builts project was featured at the 2008 Infrastructure Conference in Seattle, WA and has been featured in an article in the October, 2008 Professional Surveyor Magazine.

Just a quick note to let you know I'm very happy with the crews you have sent down here they are very professional and make my job easy.
Please extend my thanks to your crews I will recommend your company for all future work here in the Lejeune area. They are by far the best surveyors I have worked with in a while.
I just wanted to share some feedback I got from the field on your crew. Thanks for the great work so far!
“As a side note, I enjoyed working with LDSI. They choose the right equipment from the get-go and there were no delays. Of all the work they performed, I saw but one stake out of place, which they caught as well and corrected. I believe it was due to sighting around trees, or it was kicked over and replaced. We will see in the final product, but they were willing to do whatever we required and I think they produced an excellent product.”
The communication and management of the project by LDSI/IMC made managing the project easy for me and allowed me to devote my resources to other projects within the Public Works Department. Because LDSI/IMC handled it so efficiently, this project did not distract me from my other responsibilities.
We look forward to working with LDSI/IMC in the future should the need arise.
Having a surveying company on the project team that not only recognizes the importance of multiple approaches, but more importantly, can adapt to these changes willingly, efficiently and accurately, aids in greatly reducing our overall project costs and expediting the project schedule.
In summation, we highly recommend the use of LDSI services on your future projects and believe that you will be more than pleased with the quality of their work, their commitment to timely schedules and performance well within project budgets.
