Civil Engineering Design
  • Civil Engineering Research
    is a fundamental task performed during the first phase of the project; research will improve design options, and potentially avoid conflicts during the construction of any project. Utility Research is useful for civil plans to show lines such as water, storm drain, fire, sewer, etc. The challenge with this task is obtaining the records needed and coordinating with specific agencies involved. Most utilities are underground and therefore can be difficult to identify unless accurate records or as-builts are provided.
    Survey Research is also performed for surveying to analyze previously recorded data for vertical or horizontal control near the property in question. Some of the items obtained during survey research are record of survey maps, corner record maps, street centerline ties, etc. for the use of realigning field measurements to record information. For the purpose of elevations, city or county benchmarks will give the assigned – measured above sea elevation.
  • Conceptual Studies
    Conceptual Studies, reports, and plans are prepared for project feasibility in order to determine the basic requirements of the governing agency (local agency in charge of reviewing & approving projects, i.e. cities, counties, state, federal). This provides a chance to show the agency a preliminary engineering plan and/or reports of what the property owner wants developed and communicate to the client any constraints, fees, proposals, and requirements prior to a final design or significant decision making.
  • Site Layout ~ Horizontal Control Plans
    Site layout plans are engineered to comply with regulations regarding number and size of parking stalls, building area, pervious areas, building ratios, green area rations, and ADA requirements. Area distribution, area coverage, fire review, having an engineered site plan could potentially decrease any anticipated constraints sometimes not seen by the architect or lead designer, if developed during the preliminary planning phase. Typically, a survey assures a specific site plan will work with the actual dimensions of the property. These plans called horizontal control plans show planimetric lines of the site’s layout, stripping, dimensions, signs, areas, and other useful information for the contractor during construction. These plans could serve as a check of civil vs. architectural floor plans or site plans to identify any typical miscoordination of dimensions between the civil engineer and the architect.
