CEP provides services in civil engineering surveying & mapping, including: Topographic Survey, Design Survey, Boundry Survey, Plat Design & Construction Staking.

We use a robotic total station which allows a survey crew to be reduced to a single person and provides a high degree of precision under most any environmental and weather condition. We also use a Global Positioning System (GPS) where there is a clear view to the sky for communication with satellites. GPS allows our surveyor to work independently and can cover a larger area than a robotic total station without having to reset instruments.

With our interdisciplinary mapping and Geographical Information System (GIS) we provide our clients with the information they need to make informed decisions, quickly, and easily.

CEP transportation engineering services are tailored to meet the needs of clients seeking safer, economical, and lower maintenance system. CEP staff has experience working on:
 
  1. Roadway design ranging from 3R projects, bikeways, and pedestrian facilities, and traffic-calming to corridor studies, planning and interchange configuration studies.
  2. Structure design ranging from simple culvert sizing to complex and simple bridge design.
  3. CEP construction services providing inspection, management, and administration services, specializing in infrastructure, testing, plus municipal, structural, and transportation engineering services. CEP commitment to construction projects: maintaining schedules, adhering to budgets, developing contractor working relationships, keeping accurate documentation, and closing out the project.
