2023 has passed the halfway mark, and with construction season beginning to near the slowdown point for parts of the country, Canadian developers are busy planning for next spring’s big builds. Whether you’re building from the ground up or making use of a renovation/redevelopment opportunity, civil engineering plays a key role in bringing your objectives to life and ensuring your final product has the foundation it needs to stand the test of time. From multi-family structures to commercial retail spaces that need to be able to accommodate a wide range of tenants, or, a unique blend of the two (as has become increasingly common in markets like Toronto and Vancouver), partnering with the right development consultants is essential.
KM Civil Consultants, in partnership with the Krahn Group of Companies (KGC), is proud to offer industry-leading support for some of the top infrastructure developers across Canada. With decades of experience behind our team and access to a multidisciplinary suite of fellow engineering consultants through KGC, we make it easy to build with confidence and complete projects on time, with no headaches, overspending, or delays necessary!
Below, we’ll take a closer look at the importance of civil engineering during development, as well as the benefits of partnering with KM Civil Consultants. Read on to learn more!
Start With the Right Foundation
Any project, regardless of the scope or scale, involves the expertise of civil engineers. From the earliest stages, civil engineering consultants work with other involved disciplines to assess your build site and ensure that the project has adequate water, storm, and sanitary utilities, while also taking the lead when it comes to developing a low-impact design for grading and other factors that may pose environmental risks. Civil consultants evaluate the site’s soil composition, terrain, environmental factors, and access to utilities to ensure it meets the requirements for construction, and ultimately help provide the proper groundwork for all disciplines to move forward.
Once the site has been assessed, civil engineers also work in close partnership with structural engineers to oversee multiple details of the project, including core structural elements, allowing for the implementation of mechanical and architectural, as well as electrical needs in more. Put in the simplest of terms: There is very little civil engineers don’t interact with when handling the full scope of a project. This makes finding the right partner essential for success.
