Guardian Angel Cemetery - Oakland Twp, MI

Mt. Elliott Cemetery Association has been a client of Sharpe Engineering for approximately three years.  During this period the firm has assisted with all civil engineering related matters at their five Metro-Detroit cemeteries.  This work primarily occurs at the cemeteries that are still developing; Guardian Angel Cemetery (Oakland Twp), All Saints Cemetery (Waterford Twp), and Resurrection Cemetery (Clinton Twp).  Sharpe Engineering supports each of the cemetery managers by creating preliminary burial layouts and conceptual roadway alignments while maintaining proper utility services to the appropriate areas.  Upon determination of a new burial layout Sharpe Engineering will then create CAD drawings for each newly configured burial section.  These drawings help the cemetery staff with layout of the grave markers.

All Saints Cemetery 'The Preserve' - Waterford Twp, MI

Resurrection Cemetery - Clinton Twp, MI

The final burial/grave layout data is input into the Mt. Elliott Geographic Information System (MEGIS) which assists the cemetery in managing pertinent grave site information.

Sharpe Engineering has recently worked on the 30+ acre expansion at All Saints Cemetery called “The Preserve”.  This project incorporates natural burial features such as minimal grading, utilities, and paving thus providing a eco-friendly burial alternative while also having the accessibility and functionality of a traditional section.  Also, Sharpe Engineering worked on the new “Garden of the Ascension” mausoleum project at Resurrection Cemetery.  This project converted a fully landscaped section into a predominantly hardscape surface of sidewalks and buildings.  This change, in turn, required an extensive drainage system to be designed.
