Water & Wastewater Design
Cost effective design and performance that exceeds the expectations of our clients results in long term relationships. Water and wastewater system designs are measured not only at initial startup, but also in long term operation and maintenance. Whether you are looking for expansion, resolving existing failures, or troubleshooting complex treatment systems, we will deliver a solution specific to your needs.
Water is a limited and valuable resource. Permitting withdrawal and using technology to maximize metering and delivery of this resource is paramount to the vital growth of our communities. Our innovative designs and in depth knowledge of this technology results in viable projects to meet current and future water demands.
Wastewater treatment objectives continue to become more challenging. Meeting the wastewater treatment needs of the community and protecting the environment requires utilization of the latest technological advances. Our key for success is utilizing new technology based on proven concepts and matching the technology with the proper application. This provides our clients with sustainable treatment and collection systems, preparing them for the challenges of tomorrow.
Site Development & Land Planning
No two sites are the same, but our goals are. Our approach is to use sound design principles to deliver the highest site density and usable, livable space. In this form creativity and engineering combine to provide buildable, well-planned developments for the future. All of this is realized while maintaining compliance with regulations that continue to evolve and vary across different jurisdictions throughout our service area. Our active involvement allows us to excel in this ever changing market. This translates to efficient, buildable and profitable projects for our clients and a positive impact upon their surrounding environments.
Stormwater Planning & Design
With development and urbanization of land mass the complexities of treating and conveying stormwater continue to evolve with our understanding of how we impact our environment in which we live. Proper stormwater planning and design entails more than safely conveying the water downstream to its ultimate discharge point, it also includes reducing effects of pollutants and minimizing erosion along it journey. This can be achieved through modern structural controls, natural buffers and filtering, infiltration and other advanced measures. The results are reduced runoff rates, reduced discharge volume, reduced pollutants and overall cleaner water for a more sustainable community. More sustainable communities are built by properly planning infrastructure and sustained through system permitting, reporting, and management.
Transportation design and layout is the foundation to maximum utilization of land and creating a safe travel environment while minimizing delay. Safety, aesthetics, economy and regulatory requirements are the key factors in design of any new transportation system, whether it be vehicular, pedestrian or multi-modal use. Our team is trained and experienced in using the most current design and software technologies on projects such as traffic studies, signal design, highway encroachment permitting, intersection and roadway improvements, as well as new roadway design. All transportation systems have a life cycle and require maintenance. We are well versed in evaluating existing systems, making improvement recommendations and assisting our clients with identifying funding solutions.
Industrial & Institutional Design
The key to industrial recruitment, where competition for quality industry is fast and fierce, is the ability to deliver efficient design and planning products in fast paced environments. We have worked with industry and industrial development authorities to provide unparalleled advantages through our relationships with municipalities, architects, and contractors. Some of these same relationships transfer to our successful results for institutional clients as well. Successful projects for these developments require all aspects of the services we provide with deadlines and budgets as driving forces.
Construction & Contract Administration
Construction Administration is more than assisting the Owner with successful construction oversight. This also includes processing payment applications, certified payroll review, grant administration, M/WBE and funding agency compliance, or the multitude of small details that can quickly turn a progressing project into a stalled project. Our decades of experience, funding agency relationships and continuous interaction with contractors allows us to assist the Owner in delivering projects ahead of schedule and under budget.
To better serve our clients we provide field investigation and construction staking for the projects we design. This streamlines construction efforts and reduces time at the end of the project when preparing record drawings or “as-builts”. Services include topographic and location surveys of existing sites as well as staking services during the construction process. We employ technical staff to perform field tasks and maintain the latest surveying equipment for quick implementation and reduced overall project schedules.
Through the use of planting design, hardscape elements, and shaping of the land, our innovative, yet practical, solutions strive to maintain a balance between the natural and man-made environment. We understand the economic challenges of each project and the importance of conserving our natural resources for all generations. Our team has extensive experience with a diverse mix of project types ranging from residential to recreational and commercial to municipal. We work closely with our clients to provide sustainable designs that not only successfully meet their goals, but also meet the needs of the end users – present and future.
