SITE CIVIL ENGINEERING
TRANT CORPORATION provides professional engineering services specializing in site engineering for residential, retail, commercial building site plans, industrial, and municipal types of projects.
The size and complexity of the project will determine the number of drawings required to effectively convey the scope of the construction contract; these may include, topography and grading, roadwork, and civil engineering improvements such as site drainage and environmental protection.
A typical site or plot plan will depict the positioning of the project on the tract of land on which construction is to take place. Plot plans will also indicate grade elevations (vertical locations of roads, walks, and the ground, relative to a known benchmark or reference point), and locations of underground utilities (electrical, telephone, natural gas lines, etc.).
SANITARY SEWER PLANNING MODULE
SOIL EROSION PLANS
Stormwater is rainwater and melted snow that runs off streets, lawns, and other sites. When stormwater is absorbed into the ground, it is filtered and ultimately replenishes streams and rivers. In developed areas, however, pavement and roofs prevent precipitation from naturally soaking into the ground. Instead, the water runs rapidly into storm drains, sewer systems, and drainage ditches and can cause:
- Downstream flooding
Stream bank erosion
Increased muddiness created by stirred up sediment from erosion
Changes in the stream flow
