May Newsletter: Civil Engineering

We hope that everyone is healthy and taking measures to stay safe. Design Everest comes to you with a newsletter on Civil Engineering that discusses when you might need civil engineering services for your residential or commercial project.

What is Civil Engineering?

Civil engineering services are the starting point of a project before the structure is designed. Civil Engineering entails the preparation of the land on which the property is being built. This is different from Structural Engineering which entails the design of the actual building itself.

Some of the Civil Engineering services for residential/commercial projects are-

  1. Drainage and Sewer Plan
  2. Septic Tank Design
  3. Stormwater Design
  4. Hydrology Studies
  5. Erosion Control
  6. Retaining Wall
  7. Subdivision of Land
  8. Site Grading plan and Earthwork Estimates

Here are some articles to get a better understanding of civil engineering for your project

  1. Civil Engineering – What Does It Cover?
  2. What are a resident engineer’s duties and responsibilities?
  3. When to hire a Civil Engineer over a Structural engineer?
  4. How to read a grading plan?
