Engineering Services

VERTEX provides civil design engineering services for architects, developers, contractors, school districts, municipalities, property management companies, and building owners.  We have extensive experience in all types of commercial, residential, and industrial projects located throughout the country.

Civil Design

Municipalities require a myriad of professional plans on construction projects before any work begins. The planning and reporting stage is the basis for all future work and municipality approval is imperative to moving forward with your project.  VERTEX is highly experienced in developing civil design plans for municipality approval.

Site Development

Having an experienced, local Civil Engineer is key in the Site Development process. The permitting and entitlement processes have the potential to delay a project should someone unfamiliar with the process be managing this area of the project. VERTEX is highly experienced in the entitlement and permitting process, as well as other due diligence requirements. 

Land Development

Having an experienced civil engineer at the helm of your land development is necessary in order to ensure your development, be it commercial or residential, is almost as important as the integrity of the structure built on the land itself. Poor land development can lead to a number of failures and even result in construction defect litigation. VERTEX Civil Engineers take land development very seriously, and are extremely detail oriented to ensure your project is a success.

Drainage Design Services

A professional drainage design ensures proper drainage across the site and is required to not negatively impact or inundate upstream or downstream sites. A proper drainage design contemplates low impact design and overall site function while meeting the requirements for drainage runoff. 

Stormwater Management Design and Planning

Stormwater management planning and design is essential to prevent flooding, erosion and habitat destruction. At VERTEX, we take careful consideration to ensure snow melt and rainwater properly flows to a storm drain, sewer system or drainage ditch to avoid any infrastructure damage. Our Stormwater Management Services include Regional Drainage Master Planning, Erosion Control, and Drainage Design Services.
