There are many different types of engineers that are vital to real estate development. For example, civil engineers help build systems around a property to overcome site challenges regarding utilities to ensure feasibility. Plumbing engineers work on rooftop drainage, water heating systems, water softening systems, fire protection, storm piping, garden sprinklers, etc. Mechanical engineers are responsible for the heating, ventilation and air conditioning aspects of a project while structural engineers are responsible for strengthening foundations. Geotechnical engineers figure out the impact that geological formations may have on construction. In the state of Texas, the engineering profession is regulated through the Texas Board of Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors (PELS).
