Hubschman engineering specializes in seeing projects through the vast myriad of approvals required for a project to be constructed in the State of New Jersey. The regulations are overlapping and complex from local planning board approvals, county planning board approvals, and state approvals. The regulations have gotten so comlex that to remove a tree within 300 feet of a category one stream requires the filing of an NDJEP individual permit; we specialize in obtaining these types of permits.
Our services for each project start with a site visit and meeting, preparation of a proposal outlining the professional services required and the project pricing . Upon acceptance of the proposal between client and engineer; the project design is started including; surveying, drawings, calculations, preparation of permit applications and attendance at local and state meetings. Upon project approval and permitting, Hubschman engineering staff will lay out the project in the field, and provide as-built surveys required to ensure compliance with construction drawings and specifications.
