Land Development

Compliance with local, county, state, and federal regulations is critical in the development of land. Our design professionals specialize in all aspects of site development engineering and regulatory permits for projects; they have a wealth of experience in design, and construction management support, as well as many other key land development services.

Within the umbrella of civil engineering, land development engineering requires expertise in many civil disciplines including water resources (water, sewer, hydraulics, and hydrology), geotechnical, transportation, and environmental engineering. Most land development projects have aspects of each of these disciplines. Our staff professionals understand each discipline and how they could impact your land development project.

Furthermore, every land parcel being developed, regardless of size, brings its own unique characteristics and challenges. These challenges or opportunities may include items such as property access, downstream drainage issues, site-grading or topographic issues, utility availability, permitting, and more. Our engineers have the background, understanding, and know-how to face these challenges head-on while ensuring your project is a success.
