Civil Engineering and Professional Land Surveying
Atlantic’s State-of-the-Art workstations and technology enable us to provide comprehensive design services through the use of fully automated CAD workstations operating an extensive variety of engineering software packages. Atlantic's computerized design capabilities include coordinate geometry, subdivision/site layout, hydraulic and hydrologic design, traffic analysis, road plans and profiles, grading plans, topographic mapping, groundwater and air quality modeling, and landscape design.
Our subdivision design services are enhanced by the use of our CADD systems utilizing a wide variety of engineering software packages. Atlantic Design Engineers (ADE) computerized design capabilities also include coordinate geometry, stormwater hydraulics, water pressure/flow analysis, earthworks, grading, and traffic analysis.
The fully automated CADD system allows us to study several alternative designs in the early, conceptual planning stages of a project.
In addition to subdivision design and survey, ADE can also provide individual lot owners with survey and engineering services such as:
- Perc Tests
- Septic Designs
- Site Plans
- House/Lot Stake-out
- As-Built Certifications
Atlantic provides project management throughout from conceptual planning through construction. Services for affordable house projects include:
Stormwater and Drainage
Atlantic manages the preparation of existing conditions plans for identification and mapping of stormwater infrastructure to develop plans and treat the origination of stormwater. A professional field survey using GPS technology and conventional survey methods are performed to delineate the contributory area for the most accurate calculations. Test pits are also performed if necessary while locations and elevations are identified by a subcentimeter GPS survey.
Drainage systems are also designed in accordance with Town and State standards to minimize runoff, limit off-site runoff rates at or below existing conditions, and to maximize infiltration and recharge. Drainage calculations are prepared for submittal to the Town, if necessary, including an Operations and Maintenance Plan for the stormwater system.
Construction Plans and Management
Through our advanced workstations and survey capablilities we provide full site plans for any project during the permitting and construction processes. During construction, stakeouts are performed to ensure construction is not encroaching onto abutter properties and inspections are performed periodically to assess compliance with design and construction plans.
Roadway Profile and Site Design
Atlantic provides site layout design including parking, loading, signage, striping, vehicular and pedestrian access refined and finalized with geometric data and dimensions. Parking, pavement, curbing, traffic signage and striping are designed in accordance with standard engineering and highway department methods, client requirements and Town standards.
Proposed projects are graded according to standard engineering practice and criteria set by the client and/or the Town, if any. The grading, in general, is designed to minimize cuts/fills and disturbed areas.
Foundation, Septic and Utility
Foundation design and Septic systems for the new or existing buildings are designed in accordance with State Environmental Codes and any local Board of Health Regulations. Included with any Site Plans or Construction Plans Atlantic can provide Gas and underground utilities (telephone, electric, cable, etc.), Design of Erosion Control Measures, Landscaping and Lighting Design and any necessary details for a project.
Professional Land Surveying
Atlantic Design provides in-house full service professional land surveying whose expertise in includes Hazmat Site Survey, Topographic & Hydrographic Survey, Property Line Survey, Road Layout and Building Layout. Our surveying capabilities allow us to perform construction inspections to ensure that projects are developing smoothly and that errors are minimized or eliminated in the process. Survey capabilities also include wetland delineation and identification of wetland resource areas.
Permitting is required for development, requiring complete engineering plans, roadway and profile design as well as any grading plans and calculations. Atlantic has been highly involved in permitting stages of many projects beginning with cell towers in 1987 through permitting of wind turbines and solar farms in the most recent years.
Golf Course Design and Development
Atlantic has been involved is the design, permitting and development of multiple golf courses throughout the new engalnd area. Representative projects include The Ridge Club, Chiltion Hall Golf and Country Club and Ballymeade Country Club. Through using the newest civil 3D AutoCAD systems and workstations Atlantic can handle large scale projects and study alternative designs in the early, conceptual planning stages of a project.
Atlantic Design Engineers, Inc. is a full service civil engineering company whose expertise in the design, permitting and construction of automobile dealerships includes:
Coastal Engineering and Design
Services generally include a topographic/location survey of the property or area to establish existing conditions. The survey will establish mean high and low water, high tide level, flood zone levels, coastal banks as well as location of all structures, walks, seawalls, groins, etc. Site design plans for the beach nourishment, sea walls, etc. include site grading, sections, details, erosion control measures, and staging/access areas to satisfy both permitting and DEP requirements. Volume calculations for any fill to be placed may also be provided.
Traffic Impact Analysis
The required parking for planned projects or a Site's the change in use are analyzed for conformance to town bylaws. Trip generation calculations may also be performed for the present and future uses. Trafiic analysis also include evaluations of intersection accident rates, existing geometry, speeds, traffic control, and other physical site features. Studies may also include:
