Erosion Control

For Residential and Commercial Projects

Erosion and sediment control is a big part of the proper design of a site to maintain functionality and environmental responsibility. Site-specific techniques are adapted to impart soil stability in delicate areas caused due to slope failure, grading operations or for stabilizing a water body bank. An effective erosion control implementation ensures rock, sand or dirt particles do not leave the site and enter waterways thereby ensuring acceptable quality of stormwater leaving the site (also a compliance requirement for the NPDES permit). Our skilled, experienced and licensed Civil Engineers at Design Everest offer quality Erosion Control engineering services in quick turnaround time.

Stormwater Design (with LID)

For Residential and Commercial Projects

Stormwater Design involves channeling the surface stormwater to different drainage systems. We deliver efficient stormwater management plans for residential and commercial projects. Low-impact development (LID) is an approach to land development (or re-development) that works with nature to manage stormwater as close to its source as possible. LID employs principles such as preserving and recreating natural landscape features, minimizing effective imperviousness to create functional and appealing site drainage that treats stormwater as a resource rather than a waste product. It minimizes the stormwater draining to the municipal waterways. Licensed Civil Engineer will we designing the Stormwater Design with LID. Our Civil Engineer follows Appendix A City of Los Angeles Low Impact development ordinance ( LID ) while design Stormwater Design in Los Angeles

We provide subdivision plan services in Los Angeles California at competitive pricing and ensure it’s timely delivery. All our subdivision plats are executed by our licensed surveyors and meet the survey plat recording requirements. A complete package of subdivision plans will contain other information in addition to the plat. A site plan package can include information relative to roads, lighting, landscaping, natural features, access, soil erosion control, and stormwater management. All the Subdivision Designs will be provided by a licensed Civil Engineer. The local government is granted authority to approve subdivisions under the State Subdivision Map Act, Sections 66410 to 66499.58, inclusive, of the California State Government Code. While subdividing the land the Civil Engineer follows provisions of the State Map Act and the local subdivision regulations (Sections 17.00 to 17.15 of the Los Angeles Municipal Code).

Subdivision Plans
Septic Tank Design

For Residential and Commercial Projects

All the wastewater which flows into the drain of a house gets collected in septic tanks. They are the underground, onsite, small-scale sewage treatment setups that collect sewage. A septic tank contains two main two major components: a septic tank and the absorption field. The wastewater flows into the septic tank which gets treated by the bacterial action and then the effluent wastewater after primary treatment gets sent to the absorption field. A civil engineer can examine the lay of the land and perform various soil tests to establish the best area to construct the septic system. The septic tank design must meet the relevant zone and code requirements. Our Civil Engineer Follows County of Los Angeles regulations while designing Septic tanks.

Septic Tank Design
Retaining Wall

For Residential and Commercial Projects

Due to the hillside codes in Los Angeles, it is very important that you acquire the proper permitting and engineering for the wall. A retaining wall is a structure that is designed to uphold the soil behind it. Several factors must be considered to build the proper retaining walls for your property. For example, for any residential or commercial property owner will need to determine the properties of the soil, elevation, and slope of the ground, and what the height of the wall needs to be. These factors will determine what type of wall will be needed, and how it should be designed. A variety of wall types, such as poured concrete walls, concrete or masonry block walls, sheet pile walls, and others can then be designed and built to achieve the desired outcome. Our Licensed and Qualified retaining walls Civil Engineers will help in designing and engineering of high quality retaining walls for your property in Los Angeles. We also determine whether your retaining wall needs the building permit or not. If a Building permit is necessary for the retaining wall we will help you during the process of getting a building permit.
