CTE South, Inc.

Civil Engineering Design

Diversified capabilities with expertise

CTE’s Civil Engineers and Surveyors complement CTE’s diversified capabilities with their expertise in the preparation of boundary and topographic surveys (including ALTA surveys), tentative parcel maps, grading, utility, street improvement, and erosion control plans, final maps, construction staking and as-built plans, hydrology studies and storm water pollution prevention plans. Projects range from small, single-lot parcels to large commercial and residential developments.

Rational, cost-effective, and aesthetic client solutions

With a shared definition of competent design, our goal is to develop rational, cost-effective, and aesthetic client solutions. We maintain the firm understanding that appropriate plans, clearly prepared and easily read, prevent most field mistakes in the complex construction process. Our design teams and survey crews perform in tandem with thoroughly automated document support, to coordinate client objectives and efficiently maximize each site potential.
