Construction Material Testing: Environmental Engineering
There are many considerations you need to make regarding environmental engineering when working in the construction industry. Some questions you might be asking are what is environmental engineering? or what does wetland delineation mean? You need to think about the design of a building project as well as meeting the needs and requirements of clients, whether global industrial plants or large-scale commercial facilities. You also need to think about the budget and how best to make use of the materials and building techniques to achieve the planned design.
That’s not all you need to think about. A hugely important aspect of construction is the impact a building project will have on the environment. That is, when you need the help, guidance, and expert input from a skilled, qualified, and certified company like Construction Materials Testing. Headquartered in Houston, Texas we offer our services throughout the entirety of the Southeast, having offices throughout Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, North and South Carolina.
What is Environmental Engineering?
Environmental engineering is an engineering discipline that involves protecting both the environment and people from the negative effects of pollution and other issues affecting the air, water, and land. Although the methods and techniques now used are very high-tech, civilizations have been working hard on environmental engineering since the dawn of time.
Humans have always had to deal with the issue of sourcing clean water and safely getting rid of sewage and solid waste. Then, as cities grew in size and with large-scale manufacturing and agriculture becoming more commonplace, there were further concerns about soil contamination and air quality to contend with.
Environmental Engineering: What Does Wetland Delineation Mean?
Wetland delineation basically involves establishing the physical size limits and existence of wetland areas for local, state and federal regulations.
It’s always the aim when it comes to environmental engineering to use natural resources optimally, while getting the most out of materials and developing remediation techniques and renewable energy resources – to respect and preserve the environment.
Various aspects of engineering are used in environmental engineering like chemical, microbiology, energy, civil, aeronautical, electrical, and mechanical.
One of the important areas where our environmental engineering team provides crucial help is in line with meeting the necessary criteria for wetlands permitting construction. A huge part of this involves wetland delineation.
