Extensive Technical Knowledge and Experience
First and foremost, our firm has extensive technical knowledge and experience in numerous areas of land development, new construction and remodeling. Our expertise and capabilities include projects within the commercial, industrial, public/municipalities and residential sectors. We offer a complete range of professional design services to assist you.
Combined Services = Cost Effectiveness
Most projects require a combination of design and engineering services such as Civil Engineering, Land Surveying, Structural Design and Land Use Planning. Each of these can have a significant impact on your project. Not accounting for one or more of these services can result in wasted time and unnecessary re-design fees.
One of the greatest values that we provide to Developers is our knowledge in a large range of professional services. Our ability to provide combined services is both convenient and cost effective. We can increase design speed and efficiency by providing a “cross-trained” staff, which allows our employees to combine Civil Engineering, Land Surveying, Structural Design and Land Use issues in one meeting. You do not need to pay for multiple consultants, thus reducing the overall design costs.
Understanding the Approval Process
As a Developer, you are aware that large development projects can be very complicated. Also, because of individual local municipality requirements, the permit approval process can be just as complicated for a small project. Navigating you through this complex process is an important part of our services. By providing effective research, design, engineering and land use planning services, we can eliminate much of the cost/risk associated with the approval process.
Because of the complexity of the design and permitting process required by the Planning and Building Departments, we've created tools to help our Clients better understand the approval process flow.

Anticipated project cost is a very important piece of information required by a Developer. Our 20+ years of experience has shown that the development of an accurate construction budget is absolutely crucial in determining the financial feasibility of a project. We understand that the budget needs to be prepared in a format, and within a time frame, that matches the Developer's needs; we can easily accommodate your unique requirements.
Also, our staff is able to use its' knowledge to prepare a preliminary budget with the preparation of minimal design documentation. It is not necessary to prepare elaborate and expensive drawings to provide an initial budget! Because we are able to provide multiple design services, we can incorporate all types of construction work (interior, exterior, structural, land surveying, civil engineering, etc.) into your budget. The benefit to the Developer is that your budget is much more accurate from the very beginning.
Accuracy, speed and minimal costs are the foundations upon which our budget system operates.
