Engineering Consultants:

Once the design is complete, the project may be engineered. These engineers build their designs on the final design.

I have been using the same engineers for a long time, some of them for more than twenty years.

The engineering that may be required are:

Civil Engineering

The Civil Engineer provides the design that is beyond the building.  This may include, but not limited to:

  • Grading and Drainage Design
  • Offsite Utility Design
  • Onsite Septic Design
  • Site Design

Structural Engineering

The Structural Engineer provides drawings and calculations regarding the building. This might be, but not limited to:

  • Gravity Design
  • Lateral Design
  • Foundation Design
  • Framing Design

Mechanical Engineering

The Mechanical Engineer provides drawings for the mechanical systems.  For a kennel, that is typically the design of the HVAC system. The HVAC is the equipment that will supply the Heat, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning.  This equipment removes water from the air by providing air exchanges and also heats and cools the building.

Plumbing Engineering

The Plumbing Engineer provides drawings for the water supply and for the drain, waste and vent piping for the building. His design usually carries the water to within five feet of the building, where the Civil Engineer diverts the waste water away from the building.

Electrical Engineering

The Electrical Engineer provides drawings and calculations for the electrical system of the building and the site.
