Civil Engineering Services and Land Surveying

Practical solutions for the physical and naturally built environment

Through our civil engineering services, Wenck will help manage every aspect of your most complex projects from concept through construction. Our clients receive more than technical expertise. We negotiate with regulators, lead public meetings, provide accurate construction and life-cycle cost estimates, and offer insight on the complex political ramifications of projects. We keep the “big picture” in mind and take the initiative to ensure a successful outcome.

Land Surveying

Wenck understands that land and its improvements are a major financial investment. As a land surveying company, we partner with clients from concept planning and public hearings, to final approval and construction. We utilize Global Positioning System (GPS) technology to locate, document, and map all legal land ownership boundaries and planning features. Our data-driven solutions save clients time, money, and limit risks associated with the development process.

• Topographic Surveys
• ALTA/NSPS Surveys
• Construction Staking
• Subdivision Plats
• Land Descriptions
• Utility Easements
• Elevation Surveys
• Geodetic Control

Traffic Engineering & Transportation Planning

Wenck considers the user, vehicle, and infrastructure required to move people and goods safely and efficiently from point A to point B for highway and transit operations. We conduct detailed analysis of current and projected traffic movements to identify potential issues that reduce efficiencies. We use our data to develop cost-effective mitigation measures to eliminate issues and improve functionality.

• Traffic Impact Studies
• Corridor Studies
• City-wide or Sub-area Transportation Plans
• Parking Studies
• Traffic Control Design & Operations

GIS Mapping & Data Management

Wenck utilizes the latest Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to efficiently manage our projects. Applications range from simple database management and mapping to complex GIS-based hydraulic and water quality modeling. We use GIS extensively in preparing TMDLs and water resource management plans. The data we collect allows us to provide a thorough analysis and recommendations that can be readily implemented. Numerical models are also employed for a diverse set of disciplines including hydrology, hydraulics, hydrogeology, engineering, and environmental science. Our areas of expertise include:

  • ArcInfo
  • ArcView
  • Spatial Analyst
  • Mapping Services
  • Hydraulic Modeling
  • GIS Needs Assessment
  • Master Planning
  • Spatial Analysis
  • Contaminant Transport Modeling
  • Civil Site Design
  • Environmental Modeling
  • Data Management & Development
Drone Technology

Wenck utilizes small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) for endless applications from capturing complete Aeriel property views for developers to monitoring and collecting crop data for agribusiness clients. We deliver high end video and photography presentations to document our findings. Our clients utilize these visuals for marketing and public relations opportunities. The use of sUAS saves time, money, and limits risk; in addition to adding tremendous visual value to our clients’ portfolios.

• Digital Orthophotographs
• Phase I Site Assessment
• Remediation Progress Footage
• Digital Elevation Model (DEM)
• Linear Profiling (Cross-Sectional Views)
• Watershed Delineation
• Weather Event Damages
• Cut/Fill Calculations
• Distance and Volumetric Calculations
• Time-Based Differential Changes (Before/After)
• Aerial Video/Photos
• 3D Visualizations
• Construction Progress
• Precision Agriculture, including NDVI Maps

Water System Development & Maintenance

Wenck can work with you to identify, develop, and sustainably manage a reliable water system. We have successfully completed numerous water development projects involving innovative planning, design, and construction as well as supply development, transmission distribution, storage, and treatment. If needed, Wenck will complete drainage and flood studies as part of development permits and can provide stormwater master plans and final designs for our clients. We have also assisted several communities in securing alternate funding sources and has conducted financial planning for communities to ensure adequate rate schedules for debt retirement.

Land Development

Wenck excels at turning your property vision into reality through assisting in initial site selection and layout and providing quality design in final construction. We have experience with industrial, commercial, institutional, residential, and mixed-use property types. Our land development experts offer the full range of services you need to maximize your property value, including master planning, due diligence, site feasibility and constraint analysis, entitlement support, engineering site design, and permitting services. We recognize that every project is unique with its own set of challenges. Whether it’s environmental factors like wetlands or protected species, stormwater factors such as on-site management and treatment or regulatory requirements, or jurisdictional coordination via permits and review, our single-source approach allows everything to be handled in-house. Our project managers provide you with environmental scientists, landscape architects, water resources engineers, permitting specialists, and other technical experts to ensure your project is successful. Partnering with a consultant that thinks like a developer will help mitigate unnecessary risk and cost impacts that every project encounters. Collaboration with Wenck means a project with a smooth process from start to finish.
