Emerio was founded in 2005 and has grown to become a full service civil engineering firm, specializing in civil engineering for standard urban infrastructure, land surveying, land use planning, structural design, and house design. Emerio has experienced tremendous growth over the past 3 years, now totaling 48 staff. We are a certified MBE/DBE firm in Oregon (#5611) and Washington (#M4M0023961/D4M0024617), located in Beaverton and Eugene, staffed with experienced project managers, civil engineers, designers, surveyors, survey techs, land use planners, drafters, and administrative support. Emerio has 11 years of experience on projects at all stages of design, from feasibility studies and conceptual designs and alternative analysis, to final plans, specs and estimates for bidding and construction.
Emerio Design specializes in the offering the following services for public agency projects:
Following the City’s acquisition of the Colwood property, Emerio was hired to provide design engineering for PS&E construction documents for the re-development of civil improvements. Project scope included design of a separated pedestrian corridor to current PBOT standards, a creative stormwater solution, and parking lot improvements. Initial design for infiltration involved two dry wells, but a LIDA stormwater infiltration system and water quality swale was determined to be a more sustainable solution, engineered to the City’s 2014 Stormwater Management Manual. Parking lot improvements included reconfiguring the existing lot to current development standards and grading it to drain to the LIDA stormwater infiltration system. A sewer extension was designed, decomissioning the existing septic system and tying into the public sewer line.
Emerio provided design services for PBOT's pedestrian safety improvement project along a heavily traveled commercial and residential corridor. As a bundled project, along four sections of SE 122nd Ave, Emerio designed enhanced pedestrian crossings including ADA ramp upgrades, stormwater infrastructure, grading, paving, striping, and signing for three Rectangular Rapid Flash Beacon (RRFB) crossings.
Emerio Design provided civil design support on the project team to reduce sewer odors and increase the capacity of the Southwest Parallel Interceptor (SWPI) sewer system. Emerio’s task was to provide civil design, including grading and erosion control plans for the driveway and parking lot at the Ventilation Facility on the south side of SW Taylor’s Ferry Road, as well as design for the section of sewer pipeline extending from the facility to the adjacent manhole on SW Taylor’s Ferry Road.
Emerio Design managed this redevelopment, from the demolished Tualatin Grade School into an 80-unit assisted living/54-bed skilled nursing senior care facility with supporting living, dining, health and community facilities for residents. Located on the corner of two major roads, SW Boones Ferry and SW Sagert, this project required extensive public works improvements, including half street improvement of SW Boones Ferry, ADA improvements, public water line extension along SW Boones Ferry, fire hydrant, water meter, utility poles, and lighting improvements. Private onsite design included a parking lot, stormwater facilities, utilities, frontage improvements, grading, erosion control, and ADA improvements. Design of 2 LIDA stormwater ponds for water quality and detention was a highlight of this project, as well as a water detention facility. A grading balance was determined early in the project to account for the five phases of the project. The master grading plan effectively eliminated the need for import and export of soil to the site.
Emerio Design was the civil engineering consultant for this mixed-use residential, office and commercial development, including 149 apartment units and 11,000 square feet of commercial space. Emerio provided design plans for grading, erosion control, stormwater, wastewater, potable water, parking lot, sidewalks and full street improvement.
