A small project with huge impact! In feet and inches, this is one of the smallest jobs our Group Leader, Bum Phillips, has ever worked on (9’ X 85’).

However, scope of work increased as challenges were uncovered!

This project, which began as a drainage correction, evolved as we found that the existing drain had created a large underground hole causing the neighbor’s basement to flood.

Next, a mysterious pipe was found which led to an abandoned underground fuel tank and the toxic site took two months to remediate.

Although not planned, this work improved the safety and functionality of the property immeasurably and you can see from the photos above, it was all worth it. Now, this alley behind the China King restaurant on King Street in Leesburg is as charming as an alley in a European village!

Will FEMA’s flood plain remapping affect your property or project?

Across the country, Flood Insurance Rate Maps are being reissued and FIRMs that were issued in September of 2020 for the Middle-Potomac, Anacostia and Occoquan watersheds are nearing the appeal period. Remember, you’ll only have 90 days in which to submit your appeal should you choose to do so.

If you need a new site assessment or elevation certificate to satisfy requirements for the NFIP, let christopher’s engineers make the process simple. We have extensive experience and we'd be happy to work with you to supply all the information necessary to have your property covered.

#TBT! We never tire of reviewing the drone footage of the newly completed Saint Mary of Sorrows Church in Fairfax, VA! Watching a project come to fruition is one of the most satisfying parts of the work we do.

We prepared all the entitlement plans to update the church’s Special Permit and followed up with surveying services, civil engineering services, stormwater management analysis, and landscape architecture services to provide all the needed construction documents to grant the site construction permits. It was a pleasure to partner with Coakley & Williams Construction and McCrery Architects.

NVBIA Women in The Building Industry's Community Service Committee - chaired by Tiffany Caceres, P.E. - volunteered at Piedmont Environmental Council's Community Farm at Roundabout Meadows yesterday!

This farm is supported year-round by volunteers who prepare, plant and harvest crops that are then donated to Loudoun Hunger Relief. The team's efforts yesterday resulted in the planting of 1,100 pepper plants that will eventually yield approximately 4,500 lbs of produce! The farm can always use extra help... check it out, here: https://www.pecva.org/our-work/working-farms-and-food/roundabout-meadows-community-farm/.
