It is important to hire engineering professionals to design your improvements. An initial topographic survey can establish the ground contours, location of existing utilities, and the pre-development flow path of the stormwater. API Survey LLC can analyze the data and perform the design of the site improvements taking into account the varying factors the site poses. Site features can be adjusted to fit the site obstacles. A little planning up front can go a long way to shorten construction time and allow the developer/client to realize potential cost savings. Get an understanding of everything about your property and the warning signs that may be hidden. Plan for stormwater management and avoid unpleasant surprises and setbacks down the road.
