Engineering Customer Services
The Engineering Department offers many services to the residents of Surrey.
Building a house with basement
To build a basement home, your designer or contractor must determine whether the service connections are deep enough and have adequate capacity to allow basement construction. Basements must have a gravity storm service connection.

You will require a permit issued by the Engineering Department to work within the City road right of way as well as obtaining a contractor.
