Coastal and Levees

Coastal and estuarine systems present complex issues and challenges. Providence provides creative methodologies derived from a unique blend of scientists, engineers, planners, and environmental permitting specialists — all experts with considerable industry experience and technical knowledge. We offer a full scope of professional services for engineered coastal structures, coastal zone projects, wetlands, and waterway environmental permitting projects, as well as all phases of project analysis, engineering design, construction management, and monitoring.

Governing bodies are making a tremendous effort to formulate a comprehensive approach to coastal restoration — a plan Providence strives to support through permitting, compliance, remediation, and design services, as well as our long-standing relationships with governmental decision makers. We are proud to actively advocate for these long-term strategic plans to enhance Louisiana’s coastal regions. 

Providence’s full range of engineering services includes planning, permitting, design, construction administration, repair/rehabilitation of levees, along with other water conveyance and storage structures. Our staff’s collective experience includes a wide spectrum of projects including flood control, channelization, containment of dredged materials, berms for water and wastewater storage ponds and tanks, and slope protection.

Transportation Services

Providence is a trusted resource for a multitude of transportation and transportation-related projects. Drawing upon a wealth of experience, we confidently guide projects through planning and zoning, feasibility studies, environmental studies, preliminary design, mapping/plotting, and final design.

Our team uses the latest advancements in design, scheduling, and cost estimating technology, backed by extensive field analysis, to ensure every project is designed and managed effectively. Our engineers apply proven methodologies and technologies to support our clients’ transportation goals, strengthen communities, and positively impact the quality of life.

Construction Engineering & Inspection (CE&I)

Our CE&I team is committed to ensuring all projects are executed in accordance with plan specifications and are completed on schedule. Our qualified professionals have the expertise to manage, inspect, and document entire transportation projects while also ensuring consistent communication with the client or agency.

Our reliable processes not only allow us to be proactive on any potential issues, but also provide a roadmap for ensuring the entire scope of work is fulfilled. Our team is a  valuable resource throughout the entire project lifecycle; and can recommend cost-effective issue resolutions to keep the project moving forward and on track. Specific CE&I services include daily inspections by a LA DOTD Certified Inspector, detailed record keeping, contractor coordination, issue resolution, budgetary audits, schedule management, quality assurance & quality control, value engineering, cost estimating, and change order pricing.

Utility Services & Drainage

Providence offers a full range of engineering and design services associated with municipal utility systems. With respect to sanitary sewer systems, we have successfully provided our clients with engineering, design, and construction administration for gravity systems, force mains, and lift stations. We also perform inflow and infiltration (I&I) studies to assist clients in identifying and prioritizing repairs for existing systems. Our experience with municipal water systems includes design and construction oversight for potable water distribution systems, as well as modifications and improvements within existing water treatment facilities. We aim to deliver high-quality engineering services in a timely, efficient manner no matter the project.

Effective drainage systems are imperative for water safety, flood prevention, and resource conservation. With a team of experts possessing multidisciplinary knowledge, Providence is a valued resource for drainage creation, improvements, and management.

Facilities and Landfills

Providence has decades of experience providing engineering services for new and existing facilities. We provide design, feasibility studies, cost analyses, project management, and construction oversight. With an overall project delivery approach of design-build or design-award-build, our facilities services range from conceptualization to design, post-design services, and construction administration.

Even as new approaches to reduce, reuse, and recycle waste continue to be developed, landfill operations remain the backbone of solid waste management. Providence is experienced in all areas of landfill assessment, engineering, and management for both public and private sector clients. We have conducted the full range of landfill and other solid waste facility-related studies, design, and construction projects. As industry experts, Providence engineers and scientists operate at the forefront of comprehensive landfill facility planning, design, permitting, construction, operations, closure, monitoring, and compliance.

Site Development

From pre-development planning and the critical permitting stage to client representation during construction, we have completed thousands of siting studies, environmental permitting, and licensing projects for facilities throughout the country. Drawing on our expertise in facility planning, design, construction, and operations, we collaborate with clients to incorporate timely, effective solutions into our site developments.

Surveying

As professional surveyors, we’re passionate about solving problems and driven by results. Our experienced staff of professional land surveyors, field crews, and survey/CAD technicians are qualified to meet a broad range of client needs. Our industrial, commercial, and residential surveying is completed in accordance with industry best practices as well as local regulations and standards. Additionally, we routinely measure and map existing site surface conditions and subterranean utilities in both urban and rural developments across all types of terrain.
