Heavy Civil Engineering

The SEH Heavy Civil Group specializes in complex civil engineering projects such as flood control facilities, dams, landfills, harbors/marinas, structural retaining walls, and larger geotechnical projects such as reinforced slopes and embankments over soft ground.

With strong project management and communication skills, we excel at coordinating issues with multiple regulatory and jurisdictional agencies (including frequent work with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers) to manage the permitting, engineering, design and construction of complex projects.

We also help clients determine cost-effective methods of redeveloping abandoned or contaminated properties, designing roadway embankments safely across soft compressible soils, and designing complex flood protection systems, as we did for the East Grand Forks flood protection project.
