Municipal engineering is our largest specialty at Belsby Engineering. By implementing our strategies and experience with the needs of a city or town, we are able to get a project off the ground to help replace, revitalize, or improve upon the existing infrastructure. We assist municipalities with everything from grant writing to construction management. Many projects require going through the compliance process with SEPA, NEPA, and JARPA, along with (or and) others.
By combining our skills with the right GPS, Total Station, and GPS tools, we are able to survey the land of any given area to make sure plans can be built to suit based on the existing topography. Our surveying department is staffed with survey crews who are extensively trained in field surveying and engineering design. This will eliminate common miscommunications and the potential for errors, which often occur in the transfer of data between departments. Our civil designers play an active role in the drafting and design phases utilizing AutoCAD Civil 3D, ensuring a smooth transition from preliminary data collection to final engineering with both accuracy and efficiency. This unique methodology also serves as quality assurance during the construction phase, enabling our surveying department to directly provide reliable take-off information to the contractor and accurate construction staking for every project.
