Septic Design Build?

Do any of you ever perform Design & Build Septic systems?

I have the opportunity to partner with a small construction company to start expanding some septic design builds.

Just wondering if any of you have self performed the construction and design in the past?


RE: Septic Design Build?

You have to check with the local gov't about who is allowed to design septic systems. In some states a PE is not allowed to design the system unless they have worked for an installer for a while. Usually the Pollution people deal with these.

RE: Septic Design Build?

In NY it is a "Design Professional", and that is typically an engineer. Most muni's require and interpret that to mean engineer here.

I am more concerned with any conflicts that might inherent in a design build scenario where I design, and manage the construction activities by hiring subcontractors (or self performing) to do construction.

Thanks for the insight. I young guy appreciates the help.
