We bring considerable experience to the project through our knowledge of site plan regulations, zoning, federal and state regulations, and Act 250. We understand the clients we serve and ensure our projects meet their current and future requirements.

PROVAN & LORBER, INC. provides commercial and industrial developers with all phases of engineering services. These services include project planning, surveying site plans, engineering designs for drainage, wastewater disposal, water supply, and structural engineering.

Recreational Facilities
PROVAN & LORBER, INC. provides planning and civil, structural, and environmental engineering services for parks and recreation facilities throughout New England. Projects have included playgrounds, playing fields, recreation centers, campgrounds, cross country/walking trails, picnic areas, parks, boat launches, and passive recreation areas.

Services for recreation facility projects include: site planning, analysis, and design concepts; environmental site assessments; final design and permitting for roads, parking, water, wastewater and stormwater facilities and structures; and construction cost estimates, bidding specifications, observation, and preparation of record drawings.

Water Supply Systems: PROVAN & LORBER, INC. has extensive water supply experience with private and municipal projects. Our staff prepares water studies, designs water supply systems and improvements, and performs construction services. We have prepared designs for gravel and bedrock wells, treatment systems, distribution system piping, and storage tanks. Report preparation includes investigations of existing water supply characteristics, identifying the yield of existing sources, water demand projections, and development studies of surface water and groundwater sources. The evaluation of these systems includes the interpretation of mapping and hydrogeologic data, field testing, pressure and flow testing, hydraulic analysis, computer modeling, and cost-effectiveness evaluations of alternative systems. Water supply designs include filtration and complete treatment process, pumping and booster systems' chlorination facilities, storage tanks, transmission and distribution systems, flow control and instrumentation systems, and fire-protection systems.

Wastewater Collection and Disposal Systems: PROVAN & LORBER, INC. has completed many sanitary sewer planning and design projects. Our staff is experienced in the evaluation, design, and construction of sewers, force mains, manholes, and other related appurtenances, alternative sewer alignments, jacked and open-cut highway crossings, stream crossings, drop manholes, and overflow structures. PROVAN & LORBER, INC. also designs sewage pumping stations with associated instrumentation and piping. These projects have ranged from a small system serving a school and church complex to large systems serving small villages.

Our experience includes the evaluation of large, existing subsurface disposal systems and the design of new facilities to serve residential and commercial projects. Subsurface systems have also been designed for industrial park complexes.

Storm Drainage, Site Development, Municipal: PROVAN & LORBER, INC. has completed storm drainage projects for many communities and private clients for both conduit and channelized flow. Storm drain management is primary to permit applications and environmental regulations. The layout of the storm sewer networks include catch basins, area drains, slope requirements, and acceptable outfall locations dictated by existing topographic features. In many cases, detail work includes access to contributory drainage areas and runoff calculations for sizing storm sewers. When required, detention or retention ponds are sized and located as part of the drainage runoff system. Drainage improvements are often completed in conjunction with other utility improvements such as streets, sidewalks, and sanitary sewers.

PROVAN & LORBER, INC. is experienced in the preparation of NPDES permits for stormwater discharge. We can analyze the site, make recommendations on contaminant reduction, and provide specifics on the technology for stormwater treatment.

Roadways and Parking: PROVAN & LORBER, INC. has developed roadway, sidewalk, and parking lot designs for numerous land development projects. Streets and roadways utilize computer applications for design of horizontal and vertical alignments, profiles, cross-sections, gravel pavement requirements, and utilities. Other ancillary sites include sidewalks, footbridges, recreation trails, lighting, access roads, parking garage sites, and accent landscaping.

Roadways and parking lots are often the primary design feature in determining the site layout. These require careful consideration and planning to maximize the site potential, provide safe and convenient access, and yet maintain reasonable development costs. We emphasize these considerations in all our land development projects.
