Somat Engineering, Inc. has assisted private and public owners with preliminary and final design preparation for a wide array of projects.  We have the capabilities to provide design services for highway and bridge projects, retaining walls, multi-story buildings – structural and foundation designs, water mains, sewers, water storage tanks, etc.  Additionally, we have the capabilities of performing feasibility studies, alternative cost evaluation and project scheduling.  Our staff is familiar with AASHTO based transportation standards.  While “designing to a budget” is typical in the construction industry, Somat’s philosophy is to optimize priorities in the process.

Somat is a pre-qualified consultant for the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) and Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) in several categories.  This prequalification status enables our firm to perform various bridge and highway designs and provide traffic engineering services for Transportation Agencies.  This qualification and experience benefits our County and local agency clients.  We are proud of our long-standing relationship with ODOT and MDOT.  Our professionals are very familiar with DOT design standards, including requirements for the National Bridge Inventory System, National Highway System, and other federal programs.  Furthermore, we employ Context Sensitive Design to create transportation facilities that blend safety and mobility with aesthetics and community values.

Somat’s Quality Assurance and Quality Control processes for our transportation projects reviews the scope, design scheduling, and constructability of the project to ensure that our team is providing clients with the expected high-quality product and high-level of service.  These processes have earned the firm the US Department of Transportation, Federal Highway 2003 Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Award.  Our capabilities include providing all aspects of highway engineering services such as:
