Engineering support begins at the earliest stages of a project by assisting our planning team with feasibility studies and conceptual site design.  Using the very latest applications and techniques available, our engineers research, conceptualize and “engineer” a project to point it in the right direction. As it moves forward through the process, we focus on value engineering and creative designs, resulting in plan and permit approvals within your construction timeline.

We excel at feasibility studies, conceptual dry utility design, water and sewer design, stormwater management / environmental site design, sediment and erosion control design, street grade establishment plans, and storm drain and paving plans are all precisely prepared and processed to obtain the necessary permits for each phase of construction. Our staff is also capable of taking over projects that have not stayed on the desired development schedule and get them back on track to meet your desired goals.  Our designers work with the agencies at all levels for plan approvals and permits and are always available to assist you as construction progresses.

Engineering Process

When it comes to engineering, some common challenges include:

  • Understanding current construction codes
  • Keeping up with environmental regulations at the state and county levels
  • Meeting your budget without sacrificing strong design
  • Navigating the maze of required plan and permit processes

GLW is able to solve these challenges through our:

  • Organized and process-based project management
  • Solid, working relationships with agency planning and engineering staff
  • Creative and practical designs that save time because it is done correctly the first time
