Engineering for Municipalities
Johnson Engineering has been involved with a
number of municipalities over the years providing engineering
services from plan reviews to roadway servicing. We are often
consulted for drainage needs, servicing, structural review, and
various other engineering studies. Being a consulting firm with
multiple civil experts on staff enables us to perform a wide range of
services that municipalities require.
Engineering has provided the inspections of bridges for many
townships as required on a bi-annual basis according to the Ontario
Structure Inspection Manual (OSIM) published by the Ontario Minister
of Transportation. Without inspection these structures can become
quite dangerous over time through neglect, heavy use, and weathering.
Previous experience designing
bridges and our involvement with Municipal Drains gives us the
expertise needed to evaluate all conditions relevant to performing
Our final product is a maintainable
inventory of bridges with OSIM inspection sheets and real 4x6 colour
photographs of the structures and any problem areas identified. We
like to organize our inventories into durable 3-ring binders that can
be easily updated as repairs and changes are made to the existing
structures. This method allows future inspections to be made easier
by allowing for the update of existing information by adding the new
photos to the existing photo sleeves and replacing updated OSIM
Together with the inventory books is
a full report that details our inspection process and identifies the
evaluation techniques used to rate a structure's condition. We
produce maps of the inspection area with all structures identified
and labeled and formal tables listing all the structures organized in
order of condition with the most urgent at the top and the best
structure at the bottom.
Drains have been around since the original development of the
land we live on today. Without them large areas of our land
would be nothing more than swampland and incapable of supporting
the demand we place on it today.
with Municipal Drains come Drainage Engineers. Drainage
Engineers are the ones that originally designed and created our
drainage system and they are also the ones that improve and
maintain the existing drains by way of an Engineer's Report.
Johnson Engineering Consultants has been involved with drainage
since the founding of our company.
Johnson Engineering has also
produced a number of Engineering Reports for the creation and
improvement of existing Municipal Drains. David Johnson is one
of 46 recognized Drainage Engineers in Ontario.
