To the EnginuityConsulting Blog.  My name is Zubin, and I am the President and CEO of Enginuity Consulting.  We are a Civil Engineering Consulting firm based in San Diego, California.  We specialize in Civil site engineering and Land Development.  If you want more details on our services, please visit our site.

When first presented with the idea that I should maintain a regular blog for the company, I initially hesitated.  I did not want to have a bunch of drivel just for the sake of maintaining a blog.  I wanted to be able to provide helpful information on a fairly regular basis about our industry.  After thinking about it for a while, I think we can not only provide useful information, but have a little fun with it, and also be able to talk about all aspects of our business.  From the running of the business, current events, Civil Engineering technical knowledge, AutoCAD, and Information Technology.

I would also like to start a Civil recognition design program.  We’ll call it a “Civy”.  The Civy will be something along the lines of the Orchids and Onions ceremony done here in San Diego.  It bascially awards an Orchid for well done architectural design in different categories, and Onions for…well…not so well done design.  Unfortunately, we won’t have a red carpet and goodie bags filled with blue boxes from Tiffany.  Ours wont be so formal; but as we notice good and bad design, we’ll point it out, and the reasons we think so.  I have a nice backlog in my mind so I think we’ll have plenty of material.  Take a peek around. Hope we have some useful information for you. Enjoy!
