Make way for the future.

Developing land can be complex and confusing. Land development and redevelopment combine scientific and engineering expertise with artistic vision and flexibility. Success in land development depends on creating a disciplined financial model that guides the project through review, approval, and completion.

A successful project involves early consideration of a site’s constraints and virtues.

We are more than an engineering firm. We collaborate internally and externally across our diverse areas of expertise using our Integrated Design Approach (IDA) of project delivery. We work with our clients to maximize your return on investment to create success.

Environmental Investigation & Remediation

WSB experts evaluate your property to identify environmental contamination and develop a clean-up plan to resolve the issues.

Feasibility and Due Diligence

Many factors influence your project’s success: city fees, utility service, zoning, wetlands and natural resources, soils, construction costs, etc. We identify obstacles early to save you time and money.

Geotechnical Investigation

A successful land development project starts with a solid foundation. Our geotechnical team will investigate your property to understand surficial geology and soil conditions. Documentation of these conditions is fundamental to roadway and foundation designs.

Survey

Survey crews employ the latest survey technology, including 3D scanners, to gather project information. Registered land surveyors use survey information to create the documents needed to meet local subdivision requirements and lender requests. When your project moves to construction, we provide 3D models to your contractor or staking services to ensure your project gets built correctly.

Traffic

Traffic concerns generate public relations risk to your project. Your traffic study must provide evidence that your development fits within the existing transportation network and your mitigative measures conform to the local jurisdiction’s comprehensive traffic plan. Our traffic engineers prepare studies for both public and private sectors and have earned respect for their adherence to transparent and repeatable analysis.

Neighborhood and Community Engagement

Every project has a neighbor. We have an entire team based around community engagement, utilizing many traditional and non-traditional techniques for getting neighbors on your side. We employ our community engagement expertise on public and private projects.

Planning and Entitlements

Increasingly, developable land consists of difficult sites that require zoning variances, public subsidy, or special development district designation. In this context, nearly everything is open to negotiation. Our planners, economic development specialists, and public involvement strategists work as one to keep you moving through the process.

Design – Civil Engineering

Our site development engineers design the most effective plan for your property. Designing for land development requires an engineer to account for a variety of factors, including grading, roadways, traffic, utilities, water resources. We understand these factors are critical to meeting your goals and deadlines.

Design – Landscape Architecture

Our landscape architects create unique environments using our Integrated Design Approach (IDA). IDA brings together the entire project design team (planners, engineers, architects, owners) in a collaborative effort to discover design excellence for your site.

Design – Other Services

We provide many other design services for land development projects. Our complete, single-source solutions include water and wastewater infrastructure, roundabouts, monumentation, structural, native vegetation restoration, wetland creation, complete streets, innovative stormwater best management practices, and more.

Construction Materials Testing

Your project is only as good as the materials that go into it. Our construction materials testing group and state-of-theart, AASHTO-certified lab will perform tests and provide comprehensive reporting on the properties of the materials used on your project.

Construction Management

We provide traditional owner construction oversight and non-traditional services, such as cost estimating, risk management, project controls and scheduling, verification (survey or scanning), and environmental compliance.

  • Development management
  • Site selection
  • Environmental Investigation and Remediation
