Civil Engineering Firm

Broadbent is a Civil Engineering FirmBroadbent’s civil engineers, CAD technicians, designers, and drafters provide a full suite of civil and land development services. Broadbent’s civil engineering experience covers a broad spectrum of projects for mining, industrial, residential, golf course, and commercial clients.

Cost-efficient Three-Dimensional Modeling

Broadbent uses the latest AutoCAD software in preparation of our civil designs. This includes three-dimensional modeling to allow cost-efficient preparation of project design sheets. In addition to AutoCAD, we use WaterCAD and StormCAD programs to integrate the design of water distribution systems and storm drainage systems into the project. Broadbent engineers also use ArcView GIS software to produce drawings and manage data.

Experienced with Applications, Public Hearings & Permits

Our engineers are experienced at completing applications and presenting at public hearings required for conditional and special use permits, zoning change applications, and land development code variance requests. We process applications and design drawings through multiple state agencies, municipal development departments, and major utilities.

Areas of Expertise

We also have broad experience with well and pump station installations, water distribution pipeline design, flood control channel and storm drain design, and coordination of dry utilities including electricity, natural gas, and telephone. We are proficient and experienced in completing stormwater management analysis and design and preparing Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPP), Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) Plans, and Facility Response Plans (FRP). We also have experience with landfill design.

Our engineers are experienced with the normal suite of programs written by the Hydrologic Engineering Center of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. This includes HEC-1 (HEC-HMS), HEC-2 (HEC-RAS), and HEC-5 computer programs. We prepare models in support of development projects, flood control designs, and floodplain management. We also process Letter of Map Revision (LOMR) and Letter of Map Amendment (LOMA) applications through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in support of land development projects. This work includes application for 404 permits for utilities, roadways, and mining operations.

We also design septic systems, upgrades to package treatment plants, and water treatment systems to reduce contaminant concentrations in potable water systems. Our experience includes making applications to the Nevada Bureau of Safe Drinking Water on non-transient, non-community systems for industrial clients in Nevada.
