Civil Engineering Services
We show clients how to maximize the use of their site by incorporating site infrastructure in a manner that is economical, unobtrusive, and contextually responsive. Our site engineering provides solutions in the most complicated of development projects, and our engineers remain engaged and with the other design professionals throughout the entire design process.
All of our site designs are tailored to integrate the specific needs of our clients with the natural and man-made features of the land. This combination is the basis for our responsible and well-balanced site concepts.
Invoking art and science, WPL backs these concepts with solid engineering to create high quality site designs. While providing necessary infrastructure for every site, our engineers also lead in the site design process with concentration in land development, municipal engineering, storm water management, transportation, and construction administration.
Land Disturbance Plans
A land disturbance plan is an option that may be allowed for a project to help expedite a construction schedule. The plan will normally consist of indicating required erosion and sediment controls, along with preliminary site stormwater management information. Approval of the land disturbance plan may allow the contractor to begin earth moving operations to prepare for final site construction, while the remainder of the site plan is working toward obtaining site plan approval thru the local municipality.
Stormwater management is an item that is required on virtually any site design. In most cases, new or redeveloped sites create an increase in hardscaped areas. These hardscaped areas create stormwater runoff and pollutants which eventually reach our waterways. To help protect our waterways, each site employs a technique to reduce runoff quantity and pollutants. Some of these techniques may involve stormwater infiltration, bioretention beds, stormwater ponds, or even third-party constructed filtering systems. Depending on the project, the final design could use one or a combination of these items and is integrated into the final site design.
