Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering services have been our company's main focus since 1959. Today, those civil design services remain the base service of Anderson Engineering. The following civil engineering services are offered by our firm.

Municipal Engineering
Municipal Engineering is work typically ordered by local government or municipal council that is for the use and/or safety of the general public. Whether it be the initial build or maintenance of parks, roads, sewage systems, bridges, etc - Anderson Engineering can provide these services.

Commercial/Industrial Site Development
The development of a site for either commercial or industrial use is a multifaceted process that our company specializes in. We are experienced in carrying out all facets involved with this process, including:

  • Site clearing
  • Grading and earthwork
  • Gravel installation
  • Parking lot construction
  • Paving and surfacing
  • Storm drainage construction
  • Sidewalks, ramps, curbs, etc
  • Lighting

Landscaping, location convenience and visibility from the roadside are other factors that we consider/facilitate for these projects.

Subdivision Layout and Design
Our company is well-versed in subdivision layout and design. We have long-standing clients who continually use us for these types of projects and we also performed a large amount of the rebuilding work after the tornado hit in Joplin, MO in 2011.

Our goal with this type of work is to create and carry out a strategy that facilitates easier layout design, zoning, and selling of each individual lot, ultimately optimizing the space in the original land purchase, allowing for a larger number of residents to inhabit their new homes in a timely manner.

Land Use Planning
Land use planning refers to the regulations on the use of a section of land based on environmental factors and the good of the community. Our team can inform you of these regulations and educate on how they relate to a project based on specific conditions and the amount of land available in a given area.

Sewer, Water, Street and Drainage Design
Design of these public resources is done with public use, safety and functionality in mind. These projects require certain factors to be considered throughout the course of a project - state standards, federal and local guidelines and regulations, zoning issues, the preservation of natural resources, impact on quality of life, etc.

Wastewater Treatment and Process Design
Wastewater treatment refers to the process of designing and implementing a system to clean water for recycling, making the water safe for public use and/or reintroduction into the environment. There are multiple methods utilized for treatment, including biological, chemical, and/or physical processes.

Lift Station Design
Lift stations are pumps that transport sewage to increased elevations as needed, allowing the flow of gravity to move the substances through the treatment process. This economical solution lessens the expense of sewer construction.

Storm Water Drainage and Detention Analysis and Design
Storm water drainage is facilitated by the design of a catch basin - a drain in the curb or street - to which water is drawn through gravity to reduce flooding. Storm water would then be detained, releasing water slowly in order to prevent flooding, or retained after a storm with considerable runoff, ensuring water quality.

Traffic Engineering
Traffic engineering involves the design of roadways and traffic features for the safest and most convenient public use.

Structural Engineering and Design
Structural engineering involves the design of different types of structures - tunnels, buildings, carports, railroads, bridges, etc. Our structural engineers consult with architects throughout the construction process, ensuring the design is and remains structurally feasible and can withstand natural disturbance. Our team is equipped to know what materials are best-suited for a given project.

Phase I Environmental Site Assessments
A Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) is an inspection of the site by a professional to discover if any chemicals or hazardous materials are being or have ever been released on site. The conditions that would be indicative of this type of release are known as "recognized environmental conditions." Anderson Engineering is equipped with individuals who are trained to perform these assessments, which are necessary to ensure the safety of the public.
