Approach

More Than Engineers, We Are Your Partner in Land Development

Step 1

Can it Work?

Project Feasibility

At Landcore, our experienced staff has collectively worked on over 1,000 projects.  Take advantage of this experience and knowledge by engaging us when you first identify a potential project.  For little or no cost, we can spend a few hours doing some high-level analysis drawing on our resources and experience. While this is certainly not an exhaustive research exercise that should replace standard due diligence practices, it can cover a lot of bases and sometimes uncovers “deal-killer” issues before you get too far into a project. Typical things that are done during this stage may include:

  • Initial Client Consultation
  • Desktop Review of Site Constraints
  • Cursory Zoning Review
  • Sketch Plan Preparation or Fit Analysis
  • Recommendations for Next Steps.
Step 2

Doing Our Homework

Due Diligence &
Conceptual Design

Landcore helps you identify constraints and understand risks. Site due diligence is not a one-size-fits-all endeavor. At Landcore we work with you to identify the services that are most likely to identify deal-killing issues and prioritize those to control your costs. Once cleared of such issues, we tailor our services to the specific needs of your project to further identify and limit your risk. Some typical services performed in this phase are as follows:

  • Survey & Title Review
  • Zoning/Code Research
  • Site Reconnaissance
  • Permitting Assessment 
  • Utility Research
  • Conceptual Site Planning
  • Preliminary Grading & Stormwater Design
  • Preliminary Utility Planning
  • Informal Jurisdictional presentations/meetings
  • Coordination of preliminary traffic assessment and studies.
  • Coordination of Geotechnical and Environmental Investigations
Step 3

Design It

Land Development Design

Designing your project is at the heart of what Landcore does. Our design teams have deep technical expertise and experience over a wide variety of market sectors. We understand the importance of identifying the myriad of agency requirements, review agency preferences, tenant prototype needs, and constructability considerations. The art of site design is marrying all of those things with the client’s goals and vision and putting it all into a set of plans that are also economical to construct. There are many “correct” ways to design a site, but at Landcore, we strive to find the “best” site design to meet your project needs. Our design services include:

  • Land Development / Site Plan Design
  • Stormwater Management Design
  • NPDES Plans
  • Landscape & Site Lighting Design
  • Flood Studies
  • Earthwork Analysis
  • Highway Access Design
Step 4

Get it Approved

Agency Permitting

Getting your project approved – this is typically the most challenging and longest part of a land development project. From Municipal Boards to State and Federal Agencies, Landcore has the experience and staff to help you plan, navigate, and execute this part of your project. Permitting is a team effort, and Landcore also adds value by drawing on its deep relationships in the industry to help you put together the right team of professionals, attorneys, and others to set you up for success. Landcore can assist you through the following permitting:

  • Local Municipal & County Permitting
  • NPDES / Conservations District / SWPPP Permitting
  • Utility Agency Permitting
  • DOT Permitting
  • Flood Permitting
  • State Wetlands/Waters Permitting
Step 5

Build It

Construction Phase Services

Landcore can help set you up for construction success. From proper preconstruction processes and coordination, to shop drawing review and RFI engagement, we want to work closely with your construction team. During construction our team is available to ensure compliance with agency permit requirements, proper implementation of our design and to help problem-solve when issues arise. Some typical services performed in this phase are as follows:

  • Preconstruction Services & Coordination
  • NPDES Site Observations & Notice of Termination Processing
  • Shop Drawing Reviews & RFI Responses
  • As-Built Analysis and Documentation
  • Close Out of Agency Permits
