OUR SERVICES Engineering Services > Our Services > Engineering Services ENGINEERING DESIGN AND PERMITTING SERVICES Kokosing’s in-house multidisciplinary design group has licensed professionals in civil, mechanical, structural, and surveying disciplines. We have extensive design experience in heavy civil, structural and geotechnical areas. This depth of civil engineering is paired with environmental and regulatory knowledge to assist in project evolution from preliminary design and permitting compliance to the final design. CONSTRUCTION ENGINEERING SOLUTIONS Kokosing understands that engineering does not stop at the final design. We develop safe, cost considerate solutions to temporary construction systems. Our abilities are frequently utilized to deliver SWPPP design/ permitting, structural stability analysis, cofferdams, earth retention structures, dewatering applications, slope stability, falsework, equipment support, rigging, and heavy-lift assistance. Custom formwork systems are designed in-house and also coordinated with our form shop and outside rental companies. Temporary construction considerations are crucial to a project’s safety, quality, cost, and schedule. BIM GROUP Kokosing is proud to be a leader in the construction industry with state-of-the-art BIM technology and capabilities. Our in-house BIM team utilizes Autodesk AEC Collection (including Revit) to develop intelligent 3D models. Our group routinely uses project models for planning and sequencing, fabrication-level detailing, shop drawing preparation, clash detection, and general coordination. Integrating our BIM capabilities with our estimating team has allowed us to increase our speed while also increasing the accuracy of our estimates. In addition to the Autodesk suite, Kokosing utilizes Agtek for earthwork modeling, enabling efficient and accurate site work estimates. Models generated in Agtek and Civil 3D allow for transfer to our Trimble systems for GPS machine control. Our BIM Department regularly models concrete work to support form design and pour planning. Our modelers work directly with our superintendents and engineers to plan pour sequencing to ensure constructability and address any issues before any materials are ordered. Castings and embeds will be located to avoid conflicts during construction. We can develop any needed shoring or support systems. Fabrication level drawings necessary for formwork design functions will be created and form reuse will be maximized to keep costs low. Underground utilities and structures are modeled to LOD 400 to ensure fit-up and avoid interferences. Layout drawings and profiles are created from the 3D model to aid in accurate installation. Navisworks is utilized for coordination and clash detection and the model is given to our field teams for construction. In addition to construction drawings, we can provide an as-built model which has proven beneficial to our customers. Kokosing owns and operates several Trimble SX10 laser scanners capable of collecting high-density 3D scan data and imaging.
