  • Large scale civil engineering projects often demand a physical display model to demonstrate the area being built out or refitted. In most cases, these models illustrate how stakeholders are affected during the different phases of a project through to completion. We have built engineering models of many bridges including the new commuter bridge downstream from Hoover Dam. We create civil scale models of major airport makeovers, complex re-routing of major freeway interchanges, multi-faceted transportation road and rail projects, cutting edge bio-fuel plants, windmill energy generating farms and nuclear power reactors.  We get to know each project as the engineers and design team’s visualize the future of these civic wonders. We go out of our way to make the 3D scale model of your project as realistic as the one planned.

    Civil engineering scales are based on dividing one inch into an equal numberof parts. A number is placed near the 0 end of the scale that shows thenumber of divisions per inch. In the example above, each inch is divided into 50parts. This scale could be used to measure or create a drawing with a scale of50 feet per inch. By simply adjusting the decimal point, the same scale could beused to measure 5, 500, or 5,000 feet per inch.

  • Civil engineering scales are typically used for maps or construction site plans. Since these types of drawings usually show a large area, a small drawing scale must be used.

    In the example above, the civil engineering 20 scale is shown. If the drawing scale is 20 feet per inch, the distance between the arrows would be 10 feet. If the drawing scale is 200 feet per inch, the distance between the arrows would be 100 feet.

    In the example above, if the drawing scale is 20 feet per inch, the distance between the arrows would be 21 feet. If the drawing scale is 200 feet per inch, the distance between the arrows would be 210 feet.

     

    As engineers are designing roads, topographical structures and water mains, they use scales (size reduction) to transfer the design concept to a manageable size set of drawings that provide two- or three-dimensional representation of the project. Civil or engineer rulers (scales) refer to the tools that engineers and plan reviewers use to measure these projects as they are designing and building them. Accurately reading and interpreting civil scales, an important engineering skill, is vital for the success of any construction project.
