Civil Engineering

Civil engineering plays an integral role in bringing public and private developments to life. From pre-development and due diligence studies to remediation and construction phase, our firm delivers innovative land solutions throughout the entitlement and building process.

Our civil and geotechnical engineers, environmental professionals, and permitting specialists work to develop site plans, land use designs, engineering support, and inspection services for projects of every size, shape, scope, and complexity.

In addition to technical expertise, we understand complex regulatory and environmental requirements to ensure project goals are met on time and within budget.

Services

Site + Land Development

The first step towards transforming any space into a valuable resource begins with site planning and development. Our civil engineers can guide the processes to ensure effective, compliant, and economical solutions from pre-development studies to permitting, analysis to design, and layout.

Water Resource Management

McLaren’s civil group offers a complete range of specialized water resource management services. Several of our projects are multi-disciplinary, working with our in-house marine engineers, bridge engineers and survey teams. We offer innovative solutions to address challenges ranging from stream restoration, flood control, bridge replacement, erosion and sediment control, scour analysis, and countermeasure design.

  • Erosion & Sediment Control Design
  • FEMA / Flood Plain Impact Studies
  • Slope Stability Analysis
  • Riprap Stabilization Design

Roads + Infrastructure

The construction, maintenance, and rehabilitation of roads and infrastructure is a crucial component for many public entities and transportation systems nationwide. From large scale multi-lane highway construction and bridge replacements, to local intersection improvements and traffic studies, our team provides a safe, innovative, and functional approach.

Geotechnical Engineering

McLaren’s geotechnical engineers specialize in analyzing the behavior of earthen materials and how they interact with man-made elements such as foundations, flatwork, and pipelines. Our experts use principles of soil mechanics and rock mechanics to investigate and assess risks posed by conditions, design earthworks and structural foundations, and provide viable site solutions.

  • Foundation & Earthwork Design
  • Soils Testing & Analysis
  • Feasibility Studies
  • Forensic Investigation
  • Retaining Wall Design & Improvements
  • Slope Stability
  • Support of Excavation
  • Groundwater Investigations
  • Overhead Sign Structures
  • Septic Design & Sampling

Traffic Engineering

Focusing on the safe and efficient movement of people and goods across roadways, our services include investigation of high-crash locations and development of countermeasures for mitigation, design of traffic control device installations and modifications, as well as short-term and long-term traffic flow management plans that estimate impacts of proposed commercial/residential developments on traffic patterns.

  • Traffic Impact Studies / Analyses (TIS / TIA’s)
  • Expert Witness Testimony
  • Traffic Signal Design
  • Pavement Marking Plans
  • Temporary Traffic Control / Maintenance and Protection of Traffic (MPT)
