The State of Colorado requires that foundations for new residences be designed and wet stamped by a professional engineer. Foundation engineering depends upon residence size, location, soils type, ground bearing strength, etc.
Design and review for foundation engineering can include the following:
- Structural analysis for load-bearing capabilities
- Foundation design for large equipment
- 2D CAD drawings
- Onsite inspection
- Compliance with building code
- Engineering design calculations
Typical foundation investigation and design for a small residence requires 6 to 10 hours of work for site investigation (review location, drainage, soils, and design). Each site has its own challenges and is evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
Professional engineering rates are available upon request.
