For New Custom Homes, Addition, Remodel and ADUs
1. As-built: If the As-built plan of your current building is not available with you, you may need to get it done through a site visit by an Architect. This is to understand the current site conditions and to provide you realistic ideas by evaluating your needs and city/county requirements for the Addition or Remodel to be done in your house.
2. Drafting and Architectural plans: Whether your objective is for a New Custom Home, Addition, Remodel, or anything else which requires a structural rearrangement, you will need Architectural plans in the form of a proper Architectural Permit Set. This is required before the start of the engineering activities.

1. Civil Engineering: We have vast experience in delivering Civil Engineering services to residential projects. These services are required to prepare the land before a structure could be built over it.
We offer 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 the applicable management practice criteria for storm drainage.
Drainage and Sewer Plans - We optimize drainage system and ensure compliance to the applicable codes and standards. We also design and provide plans for sanitary sewer system and underground stormwater sewer systems.
