Our Engineering Services
Civil Engineering & Surveying
We offer all types of civil engineering design from site plans to hydraulic models. With our diverse array of experience, we have the knowledge and expertise to take on your engineering project. We have completed projects involving water main extensions, gravity sewer installations, and storm drain rehabilitation. We have completed water, sewer and storm drain infrastructure surveys/ assessments at the municipal and federal level. Water assessments included location, fire hydrant flow testing, defect identification, and water modeling. Sewer assessments included surveying, pipeline assessments using CCTV technology, structure assessments, pump station assessments to include pump down testing, and smoke testing to identify inflow and infiltration. Storm drain assessments included surveying, structure assessments, pipeline inspections, and drainage basin identification.
Prism Contractors & Engineers, Inc. has multiple survey field crews to complete projects of any size. We use the latest equipment (2 Handheld GPS Units, 1 Robotic Unit, and 2 GNSS/GPS Surveying Systems) and technology (Carlson, AutoCAD, and ArcView) to streamline our work and reduce costs to our customers. We have a licensed land surveyor to ensure quality control and make sure our work meets current surveying standards. Our surveying services include as-builts, construction stakeout, topographic, and planimetric.

Geographic Information Systems
Geographic Information Systems, more commonly known as GIS, is a technology that is used to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, and present spatial or geographical data. In other words, it allows us to see relationships between data and location. GIS can be used to track anything that has a location, such as trees, roads, or houses. It is often used in planning and decision-making, as it can help to visualize patterns and trends. For example, GIS can be used to study the spread of a disease, or to plan the most efficient route for a delivery truck. It can also be used to create maps and 3D models. Geographic Information Systems are essential when it comes to understanding and analyzing our world.
Our inspection team is here to assess any aging utility system in your infrastructure. Many utility systems have exceeded their design life and the cost of reactive repairs continues to rise. Our team of professionals can identify the areas of greatest need that will help you get the best return on your investment. We can also put together a comprehensive list with an accompanying cost estimate to help you better prepare for future expenses. The key to obtaining more funds is to accurately identify the problem areas and make recommendations for repair. Knowledge is power and we give that to you the second we step on site. Once repairs have been determined, our team of professionals can ensure that existing facility conditions are properly documented via pre-construction videos and that proper installation is completed. We perform construction inspection and post-television inspection of utilities both directly and remotely to make this happen. Our inspections services include the following:
