Whenever you are planning a new construction project, it is a wise decision to bring the plans to your structural engineer. Structural engineers such as FECS will look over your plans with you to make sure that what you plan to build will be structurally sound. We advise optimal materials to use and make sure everything is up to code and best building practices. Should you need your building site checked over we will also be able to check it to be sure it is up to par. The following list is just a brief overview of what we do:

  • Analyze the lay of the land and how drainage will impact your build.
  • Map/survey property to determine boundaries and location of utilities.
  • Understand the working of underground utilities such as gas, water and sewer as well as electric and assist our clients in optimum placement of buildings to take best advantage of where the lines are located.
  • Properly map and oversee your connects should you need to cross streets or connect into a network of existing configurations.
  • Inspect and oversee your project from inception to completion for a successful build.
