How it works


We have 13+ years of experience in civil engineering projects all over California. To start, a Design Everest associate schedules a consultation with you to fully understand your needs.

Quick Turnaround

Once we have an understanding of your needs and you have an understanding of the process, we start working on your Civil Engineering project right away. Our goal is to work as one cohesive team.

Easy Permit Process

We take you all the way to the permit phase and permit approval. Next, we connect you with reputable contractors in your area so you can get started on your project right away.

Civil Engineering services in California

Our California Licensed Civil Engineers have vast experience delivering Civil Engineering services to cater both 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 a quick turnaround time.

We can also connect you with our trusted contractor-partners for quick implementation of our engineering designs.

Design Everest provides the following Civil Engineering Services
Site Grading Plans and Earthwork Estimates

We offer expert site grading and civil earthworks engineering services to ensure your site meets 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 grading plan illustrates existing and proposed site topography, and information on the limits off grading and ground disturbance. Our expertise allows us to deliver high quality work with a quick turnaround time. Our pricing is competitive and we believe that our reward is our client’s success.

Drainage and Sewer Plans

Our engineers with extensive experience on complex drainage projects deliver hydrologic and hydraulic design calculation and drainage plans for various projects. We optimize drainage sytem and ensure compliance to the applicable codes and standards. We also design and provide plans for sanitary sewer system and underground stormwater sewer systems. Our engineers will produce high quality deliverables in quick turnaround.

Erosion Control

Erosion and sediment control is a big part in the proper design of a site to maintain functionality and environmental responsibility. Site specific techniques are adopted 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 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 a quick turnaround time.

Hydrology studies

Our strong engineering team at Design Everest conducts surface water hydrology studies, including but not limited to catchment analysis, rainfall analyasis, runoff assessment, water course analysis and drainage impact assessment for residential and commercial lands throughout California.

Stormwater Design (with LID)

Stormwater Design involves channeling the surface stormwater to different drainage systems. Since the topography of the land determines the flow direction of water, a proper Grading design must also be ensured. An ill-designed system may adversely impact and damage the structural foundations of the building. We deliver efficient stormwater management plans for residential and commercial lands. 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.

Subdivision Plans

Residential, commercial or industrial lands may require to be subdivided into smaller plots that are easier to sell or develop. We provide subdivision plan services in California at a 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.

Septic Tank Design

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 contain 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 feild. Designing a proper septic tank is a vital part of constructing a property that cannot access the local sewer system. 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.
