About the Division

The Engineering Division staff includes professional engineers, engineering technicians, field inspectors, administrative, and clerical support. The Engineering Division is responsible for administrative and engineering services for the Department of Public Service and other departments in the city as required by code and policy. The main activities of the Engineering Division include:
  • Plan Reviews - The plan review section reviews proposed development plans to ensure adherence to requirements of the City Code related to public infrastructure, including streets and drainage issues.
  • Site and Utility-Work Inspections - Engineering inspectors ensure that approved projects and utility work in the rights of way are constructed according to the approved plans and permits.
  • Project Management - The project management section manages drainage improvement and some rights-of-way improvement projects within the city. The section has in-house engineering capabilities for small improvement or repair projects. Consultants and contractors are employed for major projects.

The Steel Plate policy was formally adopted by the Charleston City Council on April 23, 2013.
