SITE CIVIL ENGINEERING

TRANT CORPORATION provides professional engineering services specializing in site engineering for residential, retail, commercial building site plans, industrial, and municipal types of projects.

DEP PERMITTING

The Department of Environmental Protection's mission is to protect Pennsylvania's air, land, and water from pollution and to provide for the health and safety of its citizens through a cleaner environment. 

TRANT Corporation will work to insure timely permitting and provide clear expectations for applicants.

For more information on DEP and environmental permitting, visit their website: http://www.depweb.state.pa.us

CONSTRUCTION DRAWINGS

The size and complexity of the project will determine the number of drawings required to effectively convey the scope of the construction contract; these may include, topography and grading, roadwork, and civil engineering improvements such as site drainage and environmental protection.

A typical site or plot plan will depict the positioning of the project on the tract of land on which construction is to take place. Plot plans will also indicate grade elevations (vertical locations of roads, walks, and the ground, relative to  a known benchmark or reference point), and locations of underground utilities (electrical, telephone, natural gas lines, etc.).

GRADING PLANS

A Grading Plan in civil engineering and construction is the work of ensuring a level base, or one with a specified slope, for construction work such as a foundation, the base course for a road or railway, landscape improvements, or surface drainage. 

If you don't establish a proper grading plan or the site isn't graded properly, water from storms and irrigation can run back toward the buildings. This can cause moisture issues at the foundation wall or saturate the soil next to the foundation causing hydrostatic pressure against walls, which can cause foundation cracks, structural damage, and even soil erosion

A Grading Plan is an important element in preventing property damage, flooding, standing water, and erosion.

NPDES PERMITS

EPA's National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit program plays an important role in minimizing the wastes and pollution load released into receiving bodies.  Under the NPDES Program, all facilities which discharge pollutants from any point source into waters of the United States are required to obtain an NPDES permit.   
 
TRANT Corporation can help with obtaining this important permit

SANITARY SEWER PLANNING MODULE

PA DEP Sewage Facilities Planning is needed for nearly all subdivision/land development projects whether it is an on-lot septic system, connection to public sewer, or installation of a pump station.

The Planning Module is the first step in this process and must be submitted for all new land development projects.

TRANT Corporation can help you with this important Planning Module - call us today.

SOIL EROSION PLANS

An Erosion  Control Plan is often part of a stormwater runoff management program required by local governments. The controls often involve the creation of a physical barrier, such as vegetation or rock, to absorb some of the energy of the wind or water that is causing the erosion.

On construction sites they are often implemented in conjunction with sediment controls such as sediment basins and silt fences.     Call TRANT Corporation with all your questions or concerns that pertain to Erosion Control Plans - we can help you move your project forward.  


STORMWATER MANAGEMENT

Stormwater is rainwater and melted snow that runs off streets, lawns, and other sites.  When stormwater is absorbed into the ground, it is filtered and ultimately replenishes streams and rivers.  In developed areas, however, pavement and roofs prevent precipitation from naturally soaking into the ground.  Instead, the water runs rapidly into storm drains, sewer systems, and drainage ditches and can cause:


  • Downstream flooding
  • Stream bank erosion
  • Increased muddiness created by stirred up sediment from erosion
  • Habitat destruction
  • Changes in the stream flow
