What Civil Engineers Do and How They Impact Our Lives

If you were to ask a hundred people what a civil engineer does, many would have only a general idea.

Some might say civil engineers build roads, bridges, and sewers. Others would say they survey land. In truth, the full scope is far more diverse and complex.

Civil engineers perform a wide range of diverse and vital services that help keep modern society running safely and smoothly. They are responsible for the planning, design, construction, maintenance, and operation of infrastructure that serves both the public and private sectors. This includes roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges, potable water, and sewage treatment systems, among many others, as well as land and construction surveying. The field encompasses various specializations, including structural, construction, geotechnical, transportation, land development, water resources, environmental engineering, and more.

So, where does Finelli Consulting Engineers, a Division of UTRS, fall on this broad spectrum of specializations and services? We focus primarily on an array of private and municipal services related to land development, including plot plans, variances, feasibility studies, soil testing, wetlands investigation and permitting, land and boundary surveying, stormwater, sewer, and septic system designs, as well as GIS implementation, municipal zoning representation, grant applications, subdivisions, site plans, and many other services.

Each and every day, FCE works with residential clients, private construction managers, realtors, and municipal officials on planning and developing optimal project designs that meet their specifications while adhering to a complex myriad of regulations, codes, and standards. We help clients determine project costs, risks, limitations, environmental impacts, and overall viability.

We guide them through the complex process of acquiring all necessary project investigations, inspections, and permits for projects ranging in size from small private homes to major subdivisions to large commercial site plans. We provide municipal planning and zoning board representation, review development applications, and we help local governments develop land use ordinances and modify them whenever state regulations change.

This describes only a portion of the expert services Finelli Consulting Engineers provides. Contact us at 908-835-9500, and we’ll be happy to help you get your next project underway.
