Civil Engineering

- Grading, Earthwork, Drainage

In civil engineering, grading and drainage design play a crucial role in establishing a level base or a specified slope for various construction projects. This includes foundations, road base courses, landscape improvements, and surface drainage.

- Site Development

Site development in civil engineering involves designing and permitting all improvements outside a building. This includes:

  • Grading involves site grading, sanitary sewer, storm sewer, access, paving, parking, and utility connections for water, power, and gas.
  • Facilities include the installation of drainage systems, lighting, and parking facilities. These essential elements ensure proper functionality, safety, and convenience within the site.
  • Soil testing: Performing soil sample testing
  • Roads: Creating access roads for maintenance vehicles to access the site
  • Landscaping: Landscaping the site for easier and safer use

- Low Impact Development (LID)

Low Impact Development (LID) is a land planning and engineering approach that manages stormwater runoff through green infrastructure practices. LID focuses on preserving on-site natural features to safeguard water quality. By imitating or utilizing natural processes like infiltration and evapotranspiration, LID helps protect water quality and maintain aquatic habitats.The primary goal of LID is to reduce the impacts of increased runoff and stormwater pollution by managing runoff as close to its source as feasible. LID achieves this by integrating cost-effective practices, environmentally friendly techniques, and design enhancements to improve land, water, and air quality.

 LID operates on the following five fundamental principles:
  • Conserve natural areas
  • Minimize development impacts
  • Maintain site runoff rate and control small storms
  • Use integrated management practices (control volume and pollutant loads)
  • Implement pollution prevention, proper maintenance, and public education programs

Common examples of LID practices include rain gardens, bioretention gardens, bioswales, pervious pavement, green roofs, and rain harvesting. These approaches promote sustainable water management and contribute to a healthier environment.

- Erosion Control Plan

An Erosion Control Plan (ESCP) is a comprehensive strategy outlining temporary and permanent measures to mitigate the environmental effects of erosion and sedimentation. This plan incorporates best management practices for controlling erosion and sedimentation both on the construction site and its surrounding properties. The primary objective is to decrease turbidity and address hydrologic challenges effectively. The plan must encompass measures to prevent erosion, effectively contain sediment, and manage drainage. Additionally, it should provide installation details of Best Management Practices (BMPs) and include informative notes for proper implementation. Several erosion control solutions are available to address erosion-related challenges. These solutions include:
  • Mulching
  • Structural measures such as retaining walls and sediment fences
  • Vegetative treatments, such as seeding or hydroseeding
  • Chemical treatments like polymer additives that reduce surface runoff rates
  • Sediment ponds
  • Gravel entrances
  • Grassed waterways, chute spillways, drop pipe inlets, grade control structures, diversion terraces, and water and sediment control basins (WASCoBs)
The selection of each erosion control structure will depend on specific site conditions and project requirements.

- Survey

In civil engineering, surveying involves assessing and recording details about a specific area of land. Its primary objective is to determine the three-dimensional relationships between various locations. Surveying plays a crucial role in planning construction projects by providing information on site topography, drainage paths, and contour surveys. Additionally, it aids in accurately establishing boundaries between private and public land.Surveying plays a crucial role in construction by providing precise data and ensuring project quality. Engineers rely on surveyor reports to assess project costs, timelines, and potential challenges or hazards that may arise during the construction process.

Here are some common types of surveys in civil engineering:
  • Topographic Survey
  • Boundary Survey
  • Construction Survey
  • Geotechnical Survey
  • Hydrographic Survey  
  • Environmental Survey  
  • Traffic Survey 
  • As-Built Survey 
  • Monitoring Survey  
  • Aerial Survey
