Grading and Drainage
We can provide grading and drainage drawings for all types of project regardless of size. These projects can be as small as improving drainage for a single-family residences to large as detention ponds, subdivisions, wineries, and more. We have a large tool box of methods and technology which we apply to our projects.
Low Impact Design (LID)
LID measures are features to treat, infiltrate, and store rainwater runoff from a designated storm event. The purpose of these features is to improve stormwater runoff from a site as well as reduce a site’s impact to downstream drainage courses.
These design features are intended to allow people with disabilities to move about a site. All new commercial and public projects are required to accommodate people with disabilities. Remodel projects which require a building permit are required to modify their existing sites.
Construction administration is a very important part of the construction process. During the construction phase of a project, a contract will encounter an unforeseen condition or will need to make a field adjustment. Construction administration is the open communication between the contractor and engineer to make a project meet the design and jurisdictional requirements.
Grading Violations and Remediations
Often times an owner or contractor will provide grading, increase the height of a wall, or make a minor change to their site. Many of these changes seem minor and the owner / contractor may not realize they are in violation of local ordinances. When this occurs, the local jurisdiction will notify the owner of the violations.
To properly remediate the violation, the local jurisdiction will require a civil engineer to present a set of drawings showing the historic condition as well as the intended final condition.
Technology and Tool Box
Annadel Engineering prides our self with adaption to new technologies. The tech industry produces amazing products for organization, scheduling, and communications. Our office utilizes the same programs which Google, Oracle, and ticket masters use to stay organized and communicate.
Too often in the engineering field the moto of “if it is not broke, don’t fix it”. Annadel Engineering recognizes technology increase efficiency and accuracy. Our office makes a consciences effort to explore new technology and how they can make our services even better.
