Civil Engineering Services (Infrastructure)

Infrastructure refers to the fundamental facilities and systems that serve society and sustain the living environment. In any construction of property development, civil engineers play a vital role to design proper infrastructures to ensure the public has adequate facilities and systems to carry out their daily activities. IPM Professional Services offers various services in civil design consultancy services such as earthwork, road and drainage, water reticulation, sewerage reticulation, detention pond/on-site detention (OSD), road safety audit (RSA), traffic impact assessment (TIA), and road diversion.

Scopes of civil engineering services that we provide:

    1. Earthwork
      The principle of the design is to advise on the platform level to cut and fill. Optimum cut and fill analysis is important in reducing the earth import/export which directly translates into additional costs. If the difference in platform levels between the project site and the adjoining sites is greater than 0.5m, the retaining wall or slope is required to allow smooth platform transition. An effective erosion and sediment control plan (ESCP) conforming to MSMA 2nd Edition must also be proposed to avoid polluting the property downstream.
    2. Road and Drainage
      Roads in Malaysia are owned and operated by two major operators which are JKR and PBTs, disregarding road concessions and private roads. JKR’s requirements are more stringent and extensive compared to PBT’s requirements and the design considerations shall strictly conform to Arahan Teknik Jalan (ATJ) guidelines. To prevent the rainwater from flooding the property downstream, the drainage design based on MSMA 2nd Edition shall be performed to ensure the time of concentration after the development is higher than that of pre-development. The watershed’s response to runoff shall not be compromised due to the development.
    3. Water Reticulation
      Water reticulation systems are a series of networks that obligated to start from collecting, treating, and finally distributing the water to the consumers. Water supply services in Malaysia are provided by Water Distribution Licensee (WDL) in each state. Each WDL has its design requirements which shall be incorporated in the design drawing. The engineer shall request for pressure test from the WDL to determine the pressure head available from the tapping point. If the measured pressure head is inadequate to deliver the water to the end consumer, a suction pump shall be designed to supplement the pressure head needed.
    4. Sewerage Reticulation
      Population Equivalent (PE) calculation is used in sewerage design to determine the quantity of sewage flow generated by a development. In the absence of public sewer manhole for connection, the engineer shall select the suitable sewage treatment system such as an individual septic tank, small sewage treatment system (SSTS), or sewage treatment plan (STP) based on the calculated PE. The design drawings and calculations need to be submitted to Indah Water Konsortium (IWK) for approval via SWA + SWC or PDC procedure before construction work can start.
    5. Detention Pond/ On-Site Detention (OSD)
      OSD is a short-term water storage system built within the lot boundary of each development site to serve developments on relatively small lands. The detention pond requires much complicated and iterative technical design and it is primarily designed for the major storm event. It is required for major developments that involve massive master planning. Both designs will follow the technical guidelines from MSMA 2nd Edition while complying with the local authority requirements.
    6. Road Safety Audit (RSA)
      Road Safety Audit is a systematic process to plan, design, and construct road projects by ensuring the road is well-function and in good operation either for the new or existing road by the qualified auditors. Any project that involves JKR roads is required to submit a drawing to JKR for approval and shall be audited with Road Safety Audit (RSA). Usually, RSA is conducted by registered traffic consultant and C&S consultant will first perform the road design and subsequently send it to the RSA consultant for auditing.
    7. Traffic Impact Assessment (TIA)
      Traffic Impact Assessment is used to evaluate the ability of the existing road network with the upcoming proposed development in accommodating the increased traffic while maintaining an acceptable level of service (LOS). It also identifies the need for improvements to the transportation system. Every design connects to JKR roads and some large scale development that taps into PBT roads are required to have TIA approval as a reference before designing the roads.

We provide professional civil engineering design services including:

      • Provide detailed design drawings.
      • Prepare bill of quantities and tender documents.
      • Tender evaluation.
      • Obtain construction approvals.
      • Monitor the construction to ensure conformance to the approved drawings.
      • Obtaining supporting letters from local authorities and related external technical agencies which will be construed as compulsory documents for CCC.
