I’m a Municipality, What Can Northstar Do For Me?

Infrastructure improvements including road, water and sewer design, require attention to detail in every phase of planning. Northstar works closely with municipalities and regional planning commissions in engineering design and jurisdictional permitting. Our team also provides assistance in grant applications by providing cost estimates and layout planning. For municipalities large and small, we are able to either serve as their engineering arm for particular projects or offer additional support to their internal team.

Previous Projects


    Northstar Engineering provided surveying for land acquisitions, design; grant applications, preparation of construction documents, bidding, construction administration and inspection for the 10 unit T-hangar building and a Runway Protection Zone & Safety Area Improvements project.


    Northstar Engineering designed, prepared construction plans and provided construction administration for the replacement of approximately 1,000 feet of 8″ sanitary sewer main on timber piers with 12″ dia., long span ductile iron pipe on new piers consisting of fiberglass pilings with precast concrete caps.  Design also included environmental permitting for construction through jurisdictional wetlands.  This City of Dothan project was funded and administered by the Alabama Department of Environmental Management.

    Burdeshaw St. – Before improvements were made


    Northstar Engineering Services provided civil engineering design services to the City of Dothan and Alabama Department of Transportation on the recent Burdeshaw Street Road improvements. Prior to the improvements, Burdeshaw Street had been an unpaved dirt road between Burkett Road and Ennis Road on the East side of Ross Clark Circle. Northstar prepared roadway design improvements including the addition of a new sanitary sewer system, water main and fire hydrants, storm drainage system and asphalt paving. Northstar was also responsible for overseeing construction administration and site inspections according to Alabama Department of Transportation specifications for highway design and construction. The project was completed in May 2010
