Civil Engineering Services

Tectonics Design Group’s Civil Engineering staff often starts with a blank canvas, providing preliminary planning and due diligence as part of the site selection process. Once a site is selected, Tectonics can shepherd a project through planning and zoning, mapping/platting, and ultimately to a final design that is ready for bid.

Close collaboration with both in-house design disciplines and outside consultants produces well-conceived construction drawings that not only make sense economically, but reflect functionality throughout the lifespan of the building.

Tectonics’ Civil Engineers are well versed in many project types and tasks, including the following:

  • Industrial Parks/Facilities
  • Retail Centers and Service Stations
  • Earthwork Analysis
  • LEED and Green Building Practices
  • Public Utilities Coordination
  • Site Grading Design
  • SITEOPS Site Optimization
  • Storm Drainage and Treatment
  • Development Suitability Analysis
  • Due Diligence Research
  • Entitlements
  • Site Capacity Studies
  • Land Use Planning
  • Accessibility Assessment
  • Zoning Evaluation/Changes
Industrial Site Design

At Tectonics, we’re extremely proud of the industrial site design portfolio we’ve compiled throughout the Western half of the US. We’ve become very refined in our knowledge of the distinct requirements of distribution and manufacturing companies; such as utility sizing, truck movements, site flow, and rail spur requirements.  In addition, we always work hard to understand the unique site challenges presented to industrial users early on.  Between geotechnical, grading, utility, and zoning challenges there are a lot of potential pitfalls with site selection, and site design.  It’s our highest priority to make sure your project not only avoids those pitfalls, but your project shines during and after construction.
