Civil & Environmental Engineering Solutions

Civil Engineering Service at its best.

Sunde Engineering is a civil and environmental engineering firm located in Bloomington, Minnesota. Since 1984, we have been providing developers, architects, landowners, and municipalities innovative engineering design throughout the Midwest.

Civil Engineering

Our civil group provides a full range of civil engineering design and construction management services for private and public clients. We partner with our clients in developing cost effective design solutions with attention to detail. We prepare site grading and utility plans for all sizes of projects including residential, commercial, industrial, institutional and recreational developments. Our staff includes experts in hydrologic and hydraulic analysis. We use our experience and technical expertise in the analysis and design of storm sewers and culverts, open channels analysis, erosion protection, inlet control, and outfall structures. State of the art computer models allow us to develop dynamic management of storm water and wastewater systems.

Permitting requirements often include local land use authorities, watershed districts, as well as state and federal agencies including Department of Transportation, Pollution Control, Natural Resources, Health Department, and Army Corps of Engineers. We have developed strong working relationships with permitting authorities and routinely secure required permits.

Aggregate Mining

We specialize in natural aggregate mine planning and permitting. Our expertise encompasses the entire process from beginning to end, including resource investigation, mine planning and feasibility, environmental review, environmental compliance, permitting, and mine reclamation. With work on over 100 mining projects, we have a solid track record of successfully permitting sand and gravel, limestone, and sandstone mining operations including ancillary ready-mix and asphalt plant operations throughout the Midwest, many with unique permitting challenges.

Environmental Services

Our environmental group provides environmental design services focusing on permitting, compliance, and environmental review including environmental assessment worksheets and impact statements. Our expertise includes the preparation of spill prevention control and countermeasure plans, stormwater pollution prevention plans for construction projects and industrial facilities, the design of secondary containment systems, and assisting our clients with reporting, compliance, and employee training.

Sunde Engineering's staff includes experts in geology, hydrogeology, and geologic engineering. Special development projects often require an analysis of wetlands and surfaces waters, soils, bedrock, and groundwater flow regimes. We provide regional or site-specific studies related to these disciplines.

Sustainable Design + Site Planning

Sustainable Design is a way of using energy and natural resources wisely in order to develop sites that are healthy and ecologically friendly. Sunde Engineering is committed to low impact, sustainable design.

Sunde Engineering has extensive site development experience ranging from single family homes to large shopping centers. In addition, Sunde Engineering is skilled in residential subdivision design from the initial planning stages through completion of construction documents.
