ENGINEERING DESIGN SERVICES

ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN

We are focused on adding value for our clients.  This is why we team up with local architects to provide a complete design package.  
 
Our design process and drawings are developed with the client along with design coordination and layered quality control between architecture and engineering, that reduces hidden costs and greatly improves project value and client satisfaction.
 
This process includes:
  • Building Use, Function and Space
  • Master Planning
  • Site plan development
  • Floor plan and Elevations
  • Material Selection
  • Feasibility Studies
  • Schematics and Renderings
No matter your style and function, we have an architectural partner dedicated to your needs.

GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING

Our Geotech partners can provide site specific soil testing as well as construction phase testing on site.
 
A site specific geotechnical investigation is generally recommended for foundation design to evaluate subsurface soil conditions unique to each site.  
 
A geotechnical investigation will involve drilling soil boring(s) and performing soil lab tests for soil at the site location of where the structure will be built.
 
These tests determine design values for foundation design, such as:
  • Soil type, stratum and behavior
  • Vertical and lateral bearing strength  
  • Groundwater table 
  • Potential vertical rise
  • Ideal foundation type and design parameters
The structural engineer uses this information to design the most efficient and reliable foundation for the intended building function.

CIVIL ENGINEERING

Civil Engineering relates how a new or existing structure and site pad interacts with the surrounding community and terrain.  We use Civil Engineers for Site Development works, including:
  • Surveying and Platting
  • Site Planning
  • Drainage and Detention 
  • Storm and Sanitary Sewers
  • Utilities
  • Rights-of-way and Easements
  • Paving and Flatwork Design
Communication is key!  Our partners work closely with our architects, engineers, and city planners from concept design through completion to assure the most economical and feasible design possible.
