The professional property development process typically involves an early on determination of the constraints likely to limit the development of a subject property. These constraints include regulatory requirements, physical limitations and abutter and community expectations. SITEC’s interdisciplinary group of professional engineers, field scientists and planners certified by the American Planning Association (APA) are uniquely qualified to identify these constraints and to formulate strategies for successfully proceeding through the complex local, state and federal land development permitting process. We have successfully designed and permitted hundreds of development projects, often involving difficult properties. We bring this extensive experience to the table to determine likely problems in advance, prior to the expenditure of a significant portion of a project budget.

SITEC identifies this service as a site development feasibility assessment. We begin this assessment by compiling readily available property data including GIS aerial photos, wetlands, habitat and soils maps. Also included are plans and documentation available from property owners, municipal offices and the client. We then compile this information electronically and prepare a preliminary assessment base plan.

Utilizing the preliminary assessment base plan, we then layout alternative site development concepts to meet client objectives. The difference concepts explore alternatives for balancing development potential against the physical limitations of the property, regulatory constraints and likely abutter and community concerns. These alternative site development concept plans are then reviewed and discussed with the client, and a strategy for proceeding through the approval process and a budget estimate for engineering and permitting are finalized.
