The site engineer should always be called first when you begin the building process. Many architects are very skilled at knowing local building codes and zoning limitations, but there are many other issues that need to be considered when selecting a piece of land to build on. Scott Engineering can help you evaluate the site you are interested in to determine if there are potential development problems. Issues such as storm drainage, utility availability, wetlands, soils types, and highway access can all lead to added expenses if the right property is not selected. We offer a full line of services related to evaluating property before it is purchased. A small sum of money spent on conceptual plans, utility feasibility studies and wetlands mapping, for example, could save considerable time and money in the project at a later date. Having the right piece of property can make a big difference in the success of your project.
