Client Testimonials

Las Vegas Civil Engineering has handled the lion’s share of our engineering since 2003. We’ve never had an issue that wasn’t resolved and they’ve even bailed us out of some of our own mistakes along the way. Joey and his team are great and I’d recommend them to anyone.

Westpoint Development Group

I like Joey and his band of misfits at Las Vegas Civil Engineering. Over the years, I have thrown them some real doozies, and they have never let me down since I hired them in 2005.


Our company works all over the United States and whenever we need a permit, we use Joey at Las Vegas Civil Engineering. We’ve never had a problem with their service and will continue to use them … until we do.

What Is A Permit?

A permit is formal permission to proceed with the construction phase of a project. A permit’s purpose is to ensure that all projects comply with local laws, ordinances and building codes. Civil Engineers are duly authorized to assist in the permitting process because of their education and training in design and construction. At Las Vegas Civil Engineering, we are experts in Federal, State and local regulatory guidelines with a 100% success rate in acquiring permits for clients in all 50 states.

Who Issues Permits?

Building and construction permits are typically issued by States, Counties and Cities. In some cases, the Federal Government issues permits due to specific environmental criteria.

Knowing exactly who to go to can be difficult to figure out in a timely manner. For example, Las Vegas, Nevada has several permit issuing municipalities. Here are some of the municipalities that we do business with on a regular basis in Las Vegas, Nevada:

North Las Vegas
Las Vegas
› Clark County
› NV Department of Environmental Protection
Southern Nevada Health District
Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT)

What Happens If I Don’t Get A Permit?

Failure to obtain a building or construction permit can result in fines, penalties and even the demolition of an unauthorized structure.

Can You Handle Everything For Me?

Yes, Las Vegas Civil Engineering can handle everything for you. We are the FIRST IN and LAST OUT of most of our projects. We help clients manage everything from project startup, including the referral of contractors and 3rd party providers, to completion. And we can do it all electronically through texts and email.

What is Required To Provide An Estimate?

To provide pricing and time estimates simply forward a brief overview of your project along with your contact information. A representative from Las Vegas Civil Engineering will review your message and promptly contact you to discuss your details. Estimates can typically be provided within 48 hours and are free of charge.

How Long Does It Take Las Vegas Civil Engineering To Get A Permit?

Our expertise at Las Vegas Civil Engineering results in the fastest turnaround times available in the permitting process. The average time for us to acquire a building or construction permit is typically only one to two days. However, with more complex design and construction projects this process may take longer. Cost and time estimations can typically be provided with a high degree of accuracy once we have a thorough understanding of your project.

Can Las Vegas Civil Engineering Acquire Permits In Multiple States?

Yes, Las Vegas Civil Engineering is based in Las Vegas, Nevada but is able to acquire permits in all 50 states. We have a 100% success rate and operate without any limitation on our ability to negotiate permits in other locations.

Can You Tell Me If I Need A Permit?

Yes, permits are our specialty. And at Las Vegas Civil Engineering we are happy to provide clients with information on permit requirements in their area. In addition, if your project qualifies you for an exemption, we will make sure you get it.

Can You Help Me Find A Contractor To Build My Project?

Yes, Las Vegas Civil Engineering works with an extensive network of contractors and building professionals from all over the country. As part of our service, we can refer clients to those who specialize in their type of projects, along with company history and qualifications for your review.

At first I thought Joey was great. Initially he did everything in a timely manner and seemingly correctly. BUT, When... went back to ask questions later he blew me off. When we got to building we realized the plans they provided us were incomplete and he would not advise on how to proceed. We ended up having to simplify our build due to his lack of help after he got his paycheck and his 5 star google more

Had a bad experience with Joey. They initially quoted me a price. Then I mentioned to them I needed it within a... month, and they said they would need to charge me an "expedite fee" of $2,000" (the original price was only $4,500) After not delivering on the promised date, we find out they never even visited the property for the extra $2,000. They just used info from the previous job they did for us. Overall Joey tried to scam us out of an extra $2,000 for zero extra work. Plenty of other engineers, do not use LVCE if you can avoid it!!read more

I have been working with Joey for all of my tradeshow needs for years, he has always been extremely helpful, quick to... respond, & very knowledgeable with the requirements that tradeshow construction methods require. We have worked together on both indoor & outdoor projects and he was able to help me navigate through all of my "unknowns" which helped me and my team progress our projects in our short timeframes. Thanks again for all of your hard work, and dedication, it is very much more

I normally do not leave reviews (good or bad), but today I have time… I contacted Las Vegas Civil Engineering and Joey... answered the call. He was rude and abrasive. But the last straw was when he asked me “Do you have the wherewithal to do this.” What?! How would I know to seek a “civil engineer” if I didn’t have the “wherewithal”. I started the conversation by telling him I have a background in real estate sales. He also asked “What is your purpose for wanting to do this”(in a condescending tone). I started to explain then just hung up because this is a multi-million dollar project and he definitely will ruin it. You need leadership and client relations more

We hired Joey to help us with our septic to sewer conversion. He handled the plans and permits with multiple different... agencies. We went with a contractor that he referred us to and were pleased with their work and timeliness. As with all projects issues came up and it was easy to solve with direct contact with Joey.

We hired Las Vegas civil engineering to help us with our project. We ran into some issues with some Vague information.... Joe handled it right away requested a survey crew go out and verify the information that was in question. Then he made all of the necessary corrections and presented them to us. In my opinion he went above and beyond our expectations. Nice to work with a professional. During his research on the project, he had found several other potential problems that he presented to us and made suggestions on how to correct them in real time.Thank youread more
