  • We are specialized in ADA Path of Travel site analysis and design.
  • We fully comprehend DSA’s requirements and process for Access and Fire Life Safety, thus allowing us to navigate through the process with ease.
  • We work through the pre-planning, Schematic Design (SD), Design Development (DD), Construction Document (CD), Division of State Architects (DSA), Bid and Construction Administration (CA) processes with architects and their consultants to make the project run smooth.
Epic Engineers also has extensive design experience in infrastructure. This includes streets, sewer, water, and storm drain and allows us to seamlessly work with the State Architect and the Cities and Counties on your projects. Our relationships with the local jurisdictions is second to none and we support our clients on all of your onsite or offsite civil engineering needs.

By having our Survey Team, we are able to seamlessly go from field to design and then into construction making Epic Engineers your one-stop shop for your Surveying and Civil Engineering needs on your project.

Epic Engineers has supported our design teams throughout the project cycle. Beginning with the preliminary concepts, to field surveying, feasibility studies, including feasibility of wet utilities for the site. From these studies and knowledge we are able to help the team with the schematic design to help layout site features such as storm water basins, water quality features and assist in making the project efficient and effective for the client and end users.

According to the EPA, storm water is rainwater or melted snow that runs off streets, lawns and other sites. When storm water is absorbed into soil, it is filtered and ultimately replenishes aquifers or flows into streams and rivers.

In developed areas, impervious surfaces such as pavement and roofs prevent precipitation from naturally soaking into the ground. Instead, water runs rapidly into storm drains, sewer systems and drainage ditches and can cause:

  • Downstream flooding
  • Stream bank erosion
  • Increased turbidity (muddiness created by stirred up sediment) from erosion
  • Habitat destruction
  • Combined storm and sanitary sewer system overflows
  • Infrastructure damage
  • Contaminated streams, rivers and coastal water

Epic Engineers is intimately aware of the storm water management required on school projects. Epic Engineers researches and designs the most effective water quality facilities to minimize the impact to the design and recommends low impact development (LID) or green infrastructure to create sustainable storm water management for these projects.

Epic Engineers works with Architects, School Districts, and Consultants to get approval from the Division of State Architect (DSA) on projects. We specialize in K-12 schools and other institutional projects, we are able to navigate through the DSA process for Access (ACS) and Fire Life Safety (FLS) with ease. We create drawings that we are proud to present to our clients. The plans are clear and concise. Our standards and quality control / assurance makes each project that comes out of our office easily constructed, thus saving the client time and money.

About Us

Epic Engineers began with Erick Potter’s design of Redlands East Valley HS in the early 1990’s. Erick incorporated in 1995 with a focus on civil engineering for educational facilities, selecting a group of people with the potential to support him as he grew Epic Engineers. This became his core team of designers and project managers.

On July 1, 2013, Troy Molaug became Vice President of Epic Engineers. In December of 2013, he partnered with Erick’s core team to become Epic Partners, Inc. dba Epic Engineers. Erick continued to work with the company as Vice President until his passing in 2014. We have expanded from 7 employees in 2013 to a current staff of 14 full-time employees.

Epic Engineers continues to provide the exceptional service our clients have become accustomed to while staying at the forefront of sustainability and ever-changing regulations. We continue looking at innovative ways to support our clients while maintaining the project’s vision.

Our team continuously seeks new opportunities for growth and training through formal education, certification, and professional societies.

Epic Engineers supports our communities by donating to school district fundraisers and events, volunteering our time to local non-profit organizations, as well as with memberships in service organizations such as Rotary International.

Mission Statement

To develop and maintain vital partnerships allowing us to prosper and succeed by creating leaders in our community, continually applying new knowledge, and solving challenges with straightforward solutions.
