Effective land development involves the consideration of several critical factors including maximizing yield, minimizing the cost of public infrastructure, and developing lots that are attractive to potential buyers.
Successful commercial development is driven by the availability of infrastructure improvements and the surrounding transportation network. Becoming a Certified Site can also improve your prospect of selection by a potential buyer. To obtain Certification, the development must meet readiness criteria and the speed-to-market pressures that companies face today. Our civil engineers can help guide you through this process that includes:
- Topographic and boundary surveys
- Geotechnical investigations
- Archeological studies
- Floodplain investigation
- Environmental clearances
- Wetland delineations
- Proper zoning
- Availability of utilities
Similar to commercial, residential development is about meeting market demand in an affordable and conscientious manner. Shive-Hattery’s civil engineers understand the critical need to maximize the number of available lots while minimizing the infrastructure and earthwork costs.
