Q: What type of initial data will be given for the building stakeout (coordinates or other)?
A: “Two (2) designated control points for set up and backsight will be given to measure the angles and distances to the proposed building points. The angles and distances to be calculated and measured will be given on the day of the event.

Q: Are we allowed to use a field book while pacing?

ASCE UESI’s representative will provide training on the equipment the day of the event for the National Competition only. Teams are responsible for all necessary surveying and safety equipment for regional competitions.”

Q: Will the pacing task require distances in feet or meters?
A: Feet

Q: Will the amount of cut be in units of volume or area?
A: Feet

Q: Will the elevations of the sewer line be given or will they be determined on site?
A: “At the site, teams will find centerline and offset stakes for a proposed sewer line. On the day of the competition, each team will be given the invert of the existing pipe where the proposed sewer line will connect. Teams will also be given the slope and size of the proposed sewer line. Teams will have to determine the amount of cut at each predetermined station location and the elevation of the invert at the opposite end of the proposed sewer line. Station numbers will be supplied on the centerline stakes. Calculations will be recorded by each team in the field and turned into the judge upon conclusion of the task.”
