We approach Joint Trench Design and Dry Utility Coordination as opportunities for creative problem-solving - not just a compilation of plans. It’s about advocating for sound solutions on behalf of our Client, reviewing contracts and tariffs, and being able to foresee and resolve existing condition conflicts in complex settings. Our ample underground infrastructure experience as civil engineers sets us apart from other Joint Trench designers. 


UDCE frequently provides Stormwater/ SCP and SWPPP Services (permanent and temporary) for projects as part of our overall civil engineering scope or as a stand alone service. We are State-Qualified Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) Developers (QSD) and Practitioners (QSP), ready to assist your to our fullest. We are fluent in the specificities of Bay Area requirements, having applied them on multiple local projects. We strive to balance practical site solutions with meeting local stormwater management ordinances and requirements.
