CIVIL ENGINEERING DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT
Geoscience & Technology, P.A. helps clients assess the suitability of a site for development, considering
- Wetland, stream and watershed issues
- Suitability for onsite wastewater disposal
In our site sensitive designs, we evaluate the movement of water on and under the surface, and determine the characteristics of the in-situ soils and the depth of rock.
Our engineering staff prepares alternative preliminary layouts for client consideration, then completes and submits the final design for City/County Planning Commission approval and shepherds them through the process.
Geoscience & Technology, P.A can develop subdivision layouts and designs for streets and parking, water distribution for domestic and fire service, grading plans, storm water management, erosion and sedimentation control plans.
Our engineers specialize in rapid turnaround of foundation, footing and retaining wall designs. We also prepare and submit permit applications in connection with all of the above.
Frequently, we are called upon to evaluate failed or failing structures and to make recommendations for repair or remedy. These range from dams and lakes to foundations and structures to retaining walls. We perform hydrological studies to identify causes of flooding or to ensure proper site drainage, and then assess multiple alternatives before proposing the optimum solution.
