Since 1927, BDI civil engineers have established a solid reputation as premier designers for the full range of civil infrastructure projects. No matter the project size or scope, our team has the experience, energy and technical resources to ensure success.

Our civil experience varies from large, major roadways, public parks, golf courses, governmental complexes, military installations, airfields, sports stadiums and commercial site plans, to providing solutions for complex drainage problems in remote rural communities. BDI is consistently recognized for meeting the needs of our customers. Our professionals deliver projects that are cost-effective, innovative, and ahead of schedule; our civil engineers are experienced, proactive and ready to meet any technical or programmatic challenge.

Areas of expertise include:

Stormwater and Drainage

Baskerville-Donovan has designed hundreds of large-scale stormwater management and drainage projects for local governments across the southeast. Our experience includes design of underground piping systems, ditches, stormwater retention and detention ponds, lakes, reservoirs, overflow structures, outfalls, channels, canals, dams, bridges, culverts and basin modeling. Our project experience in this area has included drainage designs and studies for cities and counties, residential subdivisions, commercial developments, roads, bridges, and industrial parks. In every case, we focus on providing environmentally friendly, logistically coordinated and permittable stormwater solutions.

Master Planning

Planning for and controlling the magnitude and route for large-scale drainage systems and basins is an area of design that has substantial public safety and public policy implications. Our engineers have been involved in this area of professional practice for decades; collectively, our staff have amassed an impressive resume of successful consulting experience.

Our clients have come to expect that a Baskerville-Donovan master plan will result in a cost-effective, environmentally sound, and socially acceptable design; a design that considers future development and the emerging infrastructural needs of the local community. Over time, our engineers have come to realize that the effectiveness and quality of individual drainage designs is entirely a result of the parent master plan. In every case, the well-conceived stormwater master plan provides a reliable, comprehensive technical framework for future decision making and public investment.

Surface Water Restoration

We are proud of our reputation as a cutting-edge firm. Our staff is consistently learning, we are part of a wide variety of training and continuing education programs. In the field of stormwater management, one of the emerging areas of public concern is the quality of our local inland surface waterways. This new area of our practice involves the integration of both the civil-stormwater and environmental engineering disciplines. Once again, Baskerville-Donovan is on the cutting edge of this important issue. For our local government clients, it is critical that our engineers develop strong technical capabilities in developing areas of public concern.

Stormwater Initiatives

At Baskerville-Donovan we understand the need for local control and involvement in addressing the complex stormwater issues typical to southern coastal and inland communities. As always, we are on the cutting edge of both the technological and programmatic aspects of this important public issue. Once again, our services are not limited to traditional engineering planning and design. We get involved; our non-traditional services are designed to assist our clients in making progressive, informed policy decisions.
