One of the first things needed in civil site design is a thorough site-specific assessment.


At Daniel Scott Engineering, our in-house experts complete site analysis, including reviewing existing information, floodplain assessment, surveyor coordination, develop preliminary and final drainage, grading, paving, and utility plans for client review, permit drawings, and final construction drawings.


Depending on the project, we can also provide Construction Administration and/or Construction Oversight. We do it all.



Daniel Scott Engineering will perform a thorough assessment of all existing conditions of your site before we get started.

Our in-house experts can lay out parcels, create corridors, and design pipe networks to fit your project into the design parameters of the governing City, County, and Drainage District.

Why Daniel Scott Engineering?

While we’re getting the lay of the land, we are also looking at the regulations and statues that will impact the project.

Here are a few reasons you should hire DSE for your civil site design project:


We have been in business since 2007


We use state-of-the-art software for designing and modeling


We go the extra mile to make sure we don’t waste your valuable time and money
