Oftentimes the first step in a design project is a well-thoughtout, -planned, and -executed preliminary engineering report (PER).
Whether the project is simply an idea, the focus of grant funding, or a fully funded project in the works, a PER will help drive the project and focus the direction. A PER states the purpose and need of a project, analyzes and evaluates alternatives, navigates the required permits and necessary involvement of federal or state agencies, evaluates environmental impacts, and provides preliminary construction cost estimates. A comprehensive PER can also be an important tool for the development of capital improvement plans.
