Leading Civil Engineering Services in California

Design Everest Civil Engineers offer a wide range of services in California. Our licensed Civil Engineers have vast experience in delivering engineering services for Residential 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.

Design Everest’s Civil Engineer will provide following Civil Engineering
Site Grading Plans and Earthwork Estimates

Our licensed Civil Engineers are experienced in site grading plan and civil earthwork engineering services, we make sure that your site meets the best management practice criteria. Properly designed grading plans by a Civil Engineer can save on overall material movement, resulting in significant cost and schedule savings. With vast experience, we also offer cut and fill estimates to Architects and General Contractors for residential building projects.

Site Grading Plans and Earthwork Estimates
Retaining Wall

Retaining wall is a structure that is designed to uphold the soil behind it. Many factors are considered to build the proper retaining walls for your property. Any residential property owner have to determine properties of the soil, elevation, slope of the ground and the height of the retaining wall. These factors determine the type of wall which is needed and how it should be designed for your home. Our Licensed and experienced Civil Engineers can help in designing and engineering quality retaining walls for your residential 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, as defined in the 2010 California Building Code Sect. 105.2(4)

Drainage and Sewer Plans

Our Civil Engineer with extensive experience in complex drainage projects delivers hydrologic and hydraulic design calculations and drainage plans for various projects. We optimize drainage systems and ensure compliance with the applicable codes and standards. Design Everest’s Civil Engineer also designs and provide plans for the sanitary sewer system and underground stormwater sewer systems.

Drainage and Sewer Plans
Stormwater Design (with LID)

Stormwater Design involves channeling the surface stormwater to different drainage systems. We deliver efficient stormwater management plans for residential 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.

Hydrology studies

Our experienced Civil 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.

Hydrology studies
Erosion Control

Erosion and sediment control is a big part of a site design 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 offers quality Erosion Control engineering services in quick turnaround time.

Erosion Control
Subdivision Plans

Residential lands may require to be subdivided into smaller plots that are easier to sell or develop. We offer a feasibility study to determine if your lot can be subdivided (upto 4 lots) by doing basic research and coordinating with the city/county. We also provide subdivision plan services in California at competitive pricing and ensure it’s timely delivery. All our plans for subdivision are executed by our licensed civil engineers. We can help with grading plans, utility plans etc. The surveyor has to provide the initial topo map documenting existing features and satisfy the survey plat/ Final map recording requirements along with traverse calculations. A complete package of subdivision plans will contain plans for the entitlements phase and sometimes Tentative map based on how big the lot is. A site plan package can include information relative to preliminary grading, access roads, preliminary utility connections, natural features, soil erosion control, and stormwater management. All the Subdivision Designs (except the tentative and Final map) will be provided by a licensed Civil Engineer.
