Laser scanning and civil engineeringCivil engineering, as it stands alone, is a broad subject and involves multiple sectors. The meticulous role of a civil engineer is crucial in varying ways, including the construction of buildings, highways, dams and tunnels. Consulting and contract engineering are the main components within the industry.

The consulting experts are involved in the project designs, while contracting engineers manage the construction projects. A contracting engineer is tasked with ensuring that a proposed project has been implemented.

McNeil Engineering has a team of experienced and professional civil engineers. Before the commencement of any project, experts from the organization will analyze a proposed site location and the surrounding areas.

The analysis will involve search, investigation and verification of the site’s feasibility for construction purposes. Civil engineers will then design a plan, outline the key variables of a project and any necessary changes.

A civil engineer is responsible for monitoring human resources during a construction project. The experts must ensure effective communication between stakeholders such as architects, subcontractors, and consultants.

The following situations are comprehensive scenarios when you would acquire the services of McNeil Civil Engineers.

Plot Plans

Before homeowners determine utility locations or improvement projects, they may need a plot plan. Experts from the engineering firm will provide the floor plans that you need for your projects.

New Homes or Renovations

If you are looking for a design or plan for building a new home or renovations, a civil engineer can help. The insights from civil engineering experts will help to ensure the successful completion of a structure.

Septic Systems

The civil engineers from McNeil Engineering are skilled in designing various types of septic disposal systems. The civil engineering experts from the organization will adhere to the standards set by local health departments.

Drainage Systems

Whether you need a design for a new drainage system or redesigning an existing one, civil engineering specialists can help to perform a comprehensive investigation to find out the ideal solution for your situation.

Walls and Landscape Plans

The requirements for walls and landscape plans vary from one jurisdiction to another. For example, there may be regulations for the height of a wall or placement of plants and trees in a landscape.

Civil engineering experts from McNeil Engineering posses extensive knowledge about the regulations in different jurisdictions. They are capable of offering insights needed during the construction of walls and adoption of landscape plans to ensure that you comply with relevant codes.

Inspections and Assessments

3D Laser Scanning Services

This practice is becoming vastly prominent in different parts of the world for both small scale and large scale projects. There are countless benefits to using laser scanning. For instance, scanning is easier when using 3D laser scanning devices.

Another benefit of thoroughly utilizing the technology is the immediate improvement in the accuracy and efficiency of the process as a whole. 3D laser scanning can help to produce precise data about a structure in a short period. It highlights the location of mechanical, structural, and plumbing features of a structure.

The views and cross-sections of floor plans help to improve accuracy during drawings. 3D scanning is helpful during the restoration of historic buildings as plans for such structures may not be readily otherwise available.

Before the invention and implementation of 3D laser scanning, reworking was common during construction projects. As a result, property owners may incur significant expenses and fees. Experts from the engineering firm can identify errors using laser scanning devices in advance and rectify any potential problems beforehand. With the technology, the amount of work to be done is minimized significantly.

The scanning can also help to lower the time used and the costs of an engineering project. 3D scanning devices produce comprehensive documents that users can review off-site, allowing for the elimination of regular site visits to review various aspects of a structure.
