Land Development

FCE offers turnkey land use solutions that help keep a client’s project on track. Our professional engineers, landscape architects, surveyors, and construction inspectors work as an integral part of the project owner’s team to streamline the project management process while also maintaining quality control measures and remaining within budget.

For over two decades, FCE has assisted clients both small and large, make their dreams a reality. We have designed numerous subdivisions, created residential, industrial and commercial site plans, road layouts, new and rehabilitated sanitary collection and treatment facilities, and a plethora of other private and public land development projects. We offer a full spectrum of land design and development services from feasibility to final plan approval.

We transform land into opportunities.

We serve a wide range of clients, both newbies to the land development world, and those who make it their full-time job to see a project through. To that end, we have assisted clients in navigating all aspects of a land development project. From feasibility studies to master planning services, our comprehensive parametric land design and development solutions are shaped by a clear understanding of a projects specific goals and timeline. Why choose FCE over another competitor? It’s quite simple; we have the local knowledge, expertise, and experience to get the job done. We have worked with and for government officials, review agencies, and with the public to know what it takes to get a land development plan approved. We have proven successful in resolving zoning and permitting issues, which can often delay work. At the same time, our expertise in community engagement in “town hall”-like settings can assist in bringing project stakeholders to a consensus.

Finding the right civil engineering firm to realize your land development vision is crucial.
