From DOT and DEP Permitting issues to Local Municipal Board Approvals, cost-effective engineering solutions are critical to any Land Development Project.

PDE’s Land Development Group offers a full range of site/civil, environmental, and traffic/transportation engineering consulting services that are required to deliver a successful Project on time and on budget. Our engineers perform services ranging from topography, earthwork, erosion control, traffic, highway access, wetlands, wastewater treatment, flood control, zoning, grading, storm water management, constructibility and cost.

Projects include development of remaining undeveloped tracts; however, the industry is seeing a significant trend of redevelopment of existing developed properties. This may include former industrial sites being redeveloped into Mixed-Use Residential, Retail and Office site or conversion of an existing enclosed Shopping Mall to an open-air Mixed-Use Shopping Center that may also include other uses such as Residential, Office and/or Hotel.

Services that are routinely provided by our staff include the following:
  • Site feasibility studies
  • Site development plans
  • Subdivision plans
  • Parking efficiency studies
  • Internal traffic circulation studies
  • Storm water management studies
  • Traffic signal plans
  • Traffic impact studies
  • Highway improvement plans
  • Construction administration and inspection
  • Expert testimony
  • Environmental Impact Statements (EIS)
  • Civil property condition and feasibility assessments
  • Hydraulic modeling for potable water systems
