In California, civil engineers and land surveyors are licensed by the Department of Consumer Affairs, Board for Professional Engineers, Land Surveyors and Geologists.
Civil engineers design and supervise construction projects, including roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges, and systems for water supply and sewage treatment. If you require any litigation support, our Los Angeles construction experts at MPGroup may be able to help.
Civil engineers may design any building or structure except a hospital or public school. Civil engineers may also perform structural and geotechnical (soils) engineering if fully competent to do so. Civil engineers analyze and design buildings to withstand the natural forces of gravity, earthquakes, or wind, and can provide advice regarding structural design requirements to architects and contractors, as well as to consumers. Civil engineers prepare design and repair recommendations for drainage systems, septic systems, foundations, and retaining walls. They also prepare grading plans and topographic maps of the elevations and contours of the land. Civil engineers also may design swimming pools.
Structural engineers are civil engineers who have obtained additional experience and passed a specialized engineering examination which authorizes them to use the title "Structural Engineer." Their specialized engineering knowledge and experience enables them to analyze and design buildings or other structures including public schools and hospitals. Structural engineers also provide advice regarding structural design requirements to architects, contractors, and consumers.
