FOUNDATION DESIGN  Design and plan preparation of foundations for buildings, heavy equipment, towers, etc. utilizing various footing types such as shallow spread footings and deep pile and pier footings. Design of foundations may include concrete, timber, and/or steel materials.

SUPERVISING PROFESSIONAL/ENGINEER OF RECORD  After completion of building design and plan preparation, the State of Wisconsin Department of Commerce (DOC) may require notification prior to construction commencement. This process, known as Project Registration, is required for most buildings with a volume exceeding 25,000 cubic feet. Additionally, if the building volume exceeds 50,000 cubic feet, most building plans must be ‘Submitted’ to the DOC for review and approval. Whether a project is ‘Registered’ or ‘Submitted’, the owner must have a Supervising Professional hired to properly design and prepare the plans per applicable building codes, and to then be available to supervise and inspect during the construction phase.
