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.
Site planning and development are crucial first steps towards transforming any space into a valuable resource. 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.
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. Our innovative solutions address challenges ranging from stream restoration, flood control, bridge replacement, erosion and sediment control, scour analysis, and countermeasure design.
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.
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.
With a diverse staff of civil engineers, structural engineers, bridge/highway/road engineers, surveyors, projects managers, and construction engineers our team can support any municipal project from conception to completion. Our expertise includes planning, design, permitting and improvements for:
McLaren’s coordinated team of multidisciplinary experts helps manage environmental liabilities, regulatory obligations, risk management, and green design solutions. Serving commercial and industrial clients, as well as community and economic development agencies, we assess, remediate, and redevelop properties, Superfund, and Brownfield sites.
McLaren’s civil engineering team has successfully undertaken hundreds of innovative projects for clients from NYC to Baltimore, Philadelphia to California, and around the world. With a portfolio spanning from high-rise developments to coastal upland sub-surface improvements, discover some of our most iconic civil work.
