Land Development Services

During the conceptual phase of development, developers retain engineers to design the project’s site plan and identify site constraints.  Site constraints are often identified through careful review of the local zoning and land use ordinances, as well as studying the property’s condition, topography and boundary.  Site plan development involves many responsibilities that include: site grading and retaining wall design, parking lot layout, curbing and sidewalk details, ADA requirements, stormwater management, utility design, landscaping and often lighting design.  E2PM’s experienced civil engineers know how to grade sites to minimize cut and fill requirements for our clients. An important aspect of land development is identification of the local zoning and land use ordinances that apply to the proposed development, which often greatly influence the site plan design.  Once our clients are satisfied with the site plan, we help to prepare local and county planning/zoning board applications.

Our Site Development capability ranges from site master planning and sustainable design solutions to engineering for the redevelopment of Brownfield Properties. We have provided planning, design, construction inspection and oversight, project management, and resident supervision for sites built for many different uses.  Our expertise includes commercial and residential sites, as well as large, mixed use and master planned sites.

During our tenure, E2PM’s professional engineers have presented site plans and provided expert witness testimonies to planning/zoning boards on a myriad of development projects throughout the tristate area.
