The design of man’s activities relies on the practice of engineering and land surveying. The two practices are intertwined. In every case, the design of physical improvements is limited by technical constraints such as minimum setbacks from environmentally sensitive areas or increased performance standards due to environmental factors. We have the knowledge and expertise to deal with the regulatory and technical constraints and limitations. Good civil engineering design must rely on a good survey of existing conditions. At Holmes and McGrath, Inc., we offer both expertise in land surveying and civil engineering. Our individual employees are knowledgeable in both and have an expertise in either of the professions.
Holmes and McGrath, through affiliated firms, designs and operates RUCKTM residential and large-scale wastewater treatment systems. Our Certified Wastewater Treatment Plant Operators operate many different wastewater treatment systems, both residential and commercial. The systems range in size from single-family residential systems of 220 gallons per day to systems having a capacity of 45,000 gallons per day.
Civil engineering is the design of physical improvements in the environment, the treatment of drinking water, wastewater and the design of drainage facilities.
Land surveyors are experts in measurement and are specially qualified to determine the location of boundaries on the ground.
