LAND DEVELOPMENT

Though the slate is often clean, turning raw ground into marketable commercial or residential space presents many unique challenges, particularly when zoning or environmental variances are required. We guide a site from concept feasibility & pro-forma through land planning & road layout and into platting.

SITE DEVELOPMENT PLANS

Generally, any building that is not a single family home requires a Site Development Permit before a building permit is issued. The site plan addresses access, utility service, parking, erosion control, tree protection, stormwater detention and water quality while complying with applicable development regulations. We identify the path of least resistance for the client and prepare, submit, and obtain approval for the site plan construction documents.

SUBDIVISION

From subdividing a single residential lot into two lots to laying out a master planned community of over 300 lots with utility, drainage, roadway design, water & wastewater treatment plants, and multiple sections spread over several years, we help clients turn raw undeveloped land into marketable lots for the future.

SITE PLAN CORRECTION

When a new tenant moves into a retail or commercial space it typically triggers a change of use, new parking requirements, water meter improvements, or TDLR review. We process minor revisions to the approved site development permit and make the transition smooth and timely for the property owner, property manager and tenant.

PROJECT ADMINISTRATION

Like the seasons, our local construction industry is ever changing. Ensuring that a project is competitively bid and built as intended is important to our clients. Our job as your consultant need not end when plans are delivered – the real fun is just beginning. We solicit bids, manage change orders, attend inspections, provide construction oversight, prepare final punch lists, obtain warranty execution from the general contractor and complete project close-outs on behalf of our clients. When the paint dries, we want you to have confidence that the job was well done.

PERMITTING

Even the smallest projects can require complex permitting, especially if a site is located within multiple jurisdictions or within environmentally sensitive zones. We prepare, submit, and guide various types of permits through the approval process and keep a wary eye on the financial impact of review time and concessions for our clients.

GENERAL PERMIT PLANS

City projects are typically permitted under the General Permit Program. They are reviewed and approved by a separate team. These projects typically involve utilities in congested subsurface areas and require careful utility coordination. Standard City Contract Documents are used to award and administer the projects.

DISTRICT ENGINEERING

In collaboration with an attorney, financial advisor and the developer, we prepare preliminary engineering reports to create a special district or governmental jurisdiction that enables it to levy taxes on current/future residents and pay debt service on bonds sold to finance new public infrastructure on large tracts of land. After the MUD/PUD is created, we prepare subdivision plans, administer bids & construction, and prepare bond election reports to justify expended costs for reimbursement to the developer through the sale of bonds.
