Many complex projects require drawing expertise from a wide array of disciplines and services including water, wastewater, stormwater, hazardous and solid waste, and geotechnical to identify the right solutions.
With experience in highly complex public and private engineering projects involving multiple engineering disciplines, Apex Companies provides comprehensive civil engineering services. Services include development planning, design, permitting, and construction administration of site/civil projects; peer reviews to assist our public clients in evaluating design and community impact; geotechnical engineering; and drainage design. Apex also provides water and wastewater treatment plant design as well as collection and distribution system design. The strength of Apex’s in-house interdisciplinary team is the ability to collaboratively identify project complexity and bring together experts to predict obstacles, determine a comprehensive plan, and successfully achieve project goals while working closely with clients and stakeholders.
Apex's staff of site civil engineers are adept at working with survey information to optimize grading and drainage, stormwater controls and detention system design, utility coordination, and parking and site traffic management, and has the experience needed to assess the implication of site design early in the process.
Apex’s team is fully versed in environmental and regulatory impacts and permitting requirements. We effectively communicate any site issues to clients to be addressed early in the process, saving time and invaluable resources. Apex has completed detailed design for diverse site/civil projects, including general municipal facility site designs, detention basins, rain gardens and bioswale systems, walking trails, integration with water uses, man-made wetlands, permeable pavements, stormwater and erosion controls, recreational parks and athletic field complexes, transfer station upgrades, and landfill facility permitting and planning. In addition to design, Apex’s civil engineering team can provide independent design and peer reviews for projects including drainage, subdivision plans, and construction administration services.

An integral part of most projects, proper drainage design often determines the long and short term success of a project.
Without proper drainage, communities and clients face flooding, untreated runoff, and many additional environmental impacts. Apex understands the importance of drainage and provides design services on a variety of projects, from stormwater to transportation. Apex has assisted many municipalities to address inadequate existing drainage systems in a wide breadth of settings from small neighborhoods to complex urban networks with services including design, planning, bidding, and construction administration. Apex provides hydraulics, hydrology, wetlands, and water quality mitigation, which are directly related to stormwater drainage design, for private and public clientele, including various state DOT and municipal clients. Plans are tailored to the unique needs of our clients, taking into consideration available budgets, mapping resources, surface water quality impairments, groundwater source protection needs, and overlapping concerns related to water supply and wastewater management.
Additionally, Apex possesses specialized experience providing acid mine drainage treatment system design, construction, operation, and maintenance.
With a team of highly experienced engineers accustomed to analyzing, designing, and permitting a wide array of transportation, site, water, sewer, and drainage projects, Apex provides peer reviews for municipal sector clients including planning boards, public works, conservation commissions, and zoning boards.
Municipalities frequently face the responsibility of identifying the positive and/or negative impacts a private development project would have on their community and infrastructure. While in most cases the benefit of increased tax revenue from these developments is easy to identify, it is imperative that all impacts are taken into consideration to make an informed decision. Apex is accustomed to providing these services to ensure that impacts identified by the proponent’s designs are accurate, comprehensive, and that the community’s best interests are being looked after. Working on both sides of private development projects has provided Apex with the experience needed to perform extensive evaluations and shed light on all types of impacts to be considered.
