SDE provides full-service civil engineering for both private and public sectors. Engineers work closely with agencies, owners, planners, surveyors, consulting engineers, and architects to create solutions for municipal infrastructure, land development, site development, Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE), and design of sewer, water, and storm drain facilities.
We provide a variety of professional land surveying services to facilitate the design and construction of roads, utilities, building sites, and the completion of property legal descriptions and plats. Work is performed by conducting research of record documents and databases for land surveys and the determination of boundary lines, retracement of private and government surveys, and the re-establishment of land survey corners.
SDE provides planning services that encompass development feasibility analysis, tentative maps, use permits, specific plans, rezones, planned developments, boundary adjustments, variances, government entitlement processing, public presentations, and outreach.We apply an interdisciplinary approach to entitlements by integrating in-house planning, engineering and survey expertise.
Subsurface Utility Engineering
SDE is a specialist in the mapping of existing underground utilities. The process, Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) as adopted by the ASCE (American Society of Civil Engineers), alleviates unforeseen or misrepresented underground facilities that can be the greatest cause of project cost overruns, scheduling delays and threats to personnel and property safety.
