Since 1995 Moe Engineering has been providing civil engineering design, municipal engineering staff augmentation, CIP program/project management, construction management and inspection services to local agencies. John Moe, Principal Engineer, is both a registered Civil Engineer and Land Surveyor in the state of California. For over 25 years our firm’s focus has been on delivering design and engineering assistance to local agencies. Our professional engineering services include the following:
Engineering plan review services for Public Improvement Plans, Subdivision Maps, Commercial and Residential development projects.
Management of Public Works facilities including streets, utilities, bridges, and other federal-aid projects.
Engineering Design: Preparing Plans, Specifications & Estimates (PS&E)
Civil engineering and surveying services for PS&E, bid support, design services during construction.
Construction Management & Inspection
Site observation/inspection of construction activities, review of environmental mitigation requirements, project closeout and record drawing review.
We work closely with local agency staff in reviewing development project applications and submittal documentation for compliance with local agency policy, codes, standards, specifications, and state and local regulations. We understand the industry terminology, methods, and practices associated with public and private improvements and the development review process. We have the written and verbal skills that are essential to properly communicate the plan review comments and conditions of approval for the development review applications and the diverse range of submittal documentation. We have created and continually update plan review check lists for various agencies. Our work requires that we communicate regularly and effectively with city staff.
We offer the knowledge and experience that comes from having supported public works staff with various aspects of project and program management, including funding applications, staff reports, council presentations, agency and consultant coordination, project design, permit application (environmental coordination, Caltrans authorizations), securing right-of-way (certifications, etc.), bid advertising, contract award, construction inspection, invoicing, and project closeout (including Caltrans process review and audits).
Moe Engineering has extensive experience designing, managing, and coordinating local, state, and federally-funded grant projects. We have worked closely with Caltrans Local Assistance staff and Caltrans Structures Local Assistance and are very familiar with the Local Assistance Procedures Manual. In addition, we continue to assist several agencies for updating their annual Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program and calculation of DBE goals for specific projects. We also have experience designing and soliciting bids for Sonoma County Community Development Commission Block Grant (CDBG) funded projects.
We provide construction management and inspections services for several of the same agencies that we provide the other staff augmentation services. Our many years providing these services demonstrates our ability to effectively communicate and maintain working relationships while managing complex projects and diverse engineering assignments.
