Site Planning

Site planning in architecture refers to the organizational stage of the architectural design process. It involves the organization of land use zoning, access, circulation, privacy, security, shelter, land drainage, and other factors.  Site planning is the design and process of planning for a new development project. Through site analysis and precise dimensions taken by development engineers, community members are given an exact image of what developers want to do.

Construction Management

In our role providing construction management we typically provide the following:

  • Specifying project objectives and plans including delineation of scope, budgeting, scheduling, setting performance requirements, and selecting project participants.
  • Maximizing the resource efficiency through procurement of labor, materials and equipment.
  • Implementing various operations through proper coordination and control of planning, design, estimating, contracting and construction in the entire process.
