Our Los Angeles Licensed Civil Engineers have vast experience delivering Civil Engineering services to cater to Residential and Commercial projects. Design Everest can help you with all the necessary engineering and paperwork to obtain required permits for land development before construction in quick turnaround time.
We offer expert site grading and civil earthworks engineering services in Los Angeles to ensure your site meets the best management practice criteria for storm drainage. Properly designed grading plans can save on overall material movement resulting in significant cost and schedule savings. With our vast experience, we also offer cut and fill estimates to Architects and General Contractors for residential and commercial projects.
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, any residential or commercial property owner in Los Angeles will need to determine the properties of the soil, the 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 for your home. 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. We also determine whether your retaining wall needs the building permit or not. If a home permit is necessary for the retaining wall we will help you during the process of getting a permit. Retaining walls require a permit when the retaining wall retains earth, and is over 4 feet in height, (Measured from the bottom of the footing), as defined in the 2010 California Building Code Sect. 105.2(4). We also Follow Los Angeles standards for the retaining wall Design.
Residential lands may require to be subdivided into smaller plots that are easier to sell or develop. We provide subdivision plan services in 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 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 the 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.
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 and experienced engineers at Design Everest offer quality Erosion Control engineering services in quick turnaround time.
Our engineers with extensive experience in complex drainage projects deliver hydrologic and hydraulic design calculation and drainage plans for various projects. We optimize drainage systems and ensure compliance with the applicable codes and standards. We also design and provide plans for the sanitary sewer system and underground stormwater sewer systems.
Our strong engineering team at Design Everest conducts surface water hydrology studies, including but not limited to catchment analysis, rainfall analysis, runoff assessment, watercourse analysis and drainage impact assessment for residential and commercial lands throughout California.
To start, a Design Everest consultant schedules a consultation with you to fully understand your needs.
Once we understand your needs, we deliver plans and drawings for your project. We have quick turnaround time, with the option to track your project in real time
We will provide a set of drawings that you may submit to the city to obtain the required permits. Our fixed fee includes addressing all city comments (if any) on our plans until the permit is approved. Next, we can connect you with reputable contractors in your area, so you can get started with your project right away.
We are a true one-stop engineering shop with expertise in a wide range of specializations in providing Los Angeles Civil Engineering Services as listed above. Our experienced engineers design efficient structures and are always looking for value engineering solutions so that customers pay less in construction, materials costs, etc.
Unlike most firms, we leverage technology, and make every effort to get high-quality plans delivered in weeks -- not months. Hey, who said construction has to be painful?
Our proprietary data system ‘The Design Hub’ allows us to efficiently forecast and optimize our resources. This means we can take on a project of any size at any time while maintaining quality and schedule.
The eng. was good, he explained us everything. I don't know about the design as I am not an eng. but will know when its being constructed. I got the permit. It took longer than I was told.
