Shapouri & Associates offers a full range of
civil engineering services:
One of our associates is a registered land surveyor who performs
site specific boundary surveys. In addition,
Global Positioning System (GPS) and
Remote Sensing satellite data for mapping purposes is used
extensively to provide highly accurate surveys at a reasonable
price. Aerial surveys are also used for producing contour maps
and aerial photographic inventory.
Using our computerized database and
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) we are capable of
determining suitable sites for variety of public and private
facilities and infrastructure, such as sewer and water lines,
treatment plants, spectator sport facilities, industrial plants,
Based on the site topography, location, existing vegetation cover
and proposed land use, hydrological analysis is performed to
determine the flow rates of water courses and flood plains for
purposes of designing flood control structures and facilities.
Our firm's engineers have extensive working knowledge of public
and private disposal systems, including septic tanks in combination
with leach lines or horizontal or vertical seepage pits, design for
sewer pump stations and sewer lines.
Our emphasis is on quality engineering before the project breaks
ground. Through detailed design review most problems that may
potentially surface during construction will be eliminated.
Moreover, by providing accurate improvement plans and construction
drawings, construction projects are managed and completed within
time and budget to the satisfaction of the client.
We have designed and built a modular steel bridge that won the
"1995 Outstanding Civil Engineering Project Award of Merit" from the
San Diego section of American Society
of Civil Engineers (ASCE). This flexible bridge design can
be applied to various situations at a fraction of cost of typical
Various retaining structures have been designed by
Shapouri & Associates, using modular concrete blocks such as
and Allan Blocks
