Site Development Planning

CEC performs civil engineering and site development services for residential, commercial, and industrial sites throughout the eastern and midwestern United States. In addition to greenfield site development, CEC has in depth experience in all phases of brownfield redevelopment requiring a thorough knowledge base of environmental engineering issues.

greenfields and brownfields development

CEC performs civil engineering and site development services for residential, commercial, and industrial sites throughout the eastern and midwestern United States. In addition to greenfield site development, CEC has in depth experience in all phases of brownfield redevelopment requiring a thorough knowledge base of environmental engineering issues.

Our services include predevelopment site investigations, site grading analyses, design of erosion and sedimentation control facilities, stormwater management, and utility design/coordination. CEC has assisted developers, architects, and private industry with the development of cost-effective designs for regional shopping centers, industrial and office parks, health care facilities, institutional facilities, and commercial site developments.

We provide services in the following areas:

Predevelopment Site Investigations

CEC offers investigative services to identify utility capacity constraints, floodplain, and wetland issues, geologic conditions, regulatory approval processes, threatened and endangered species, and other site parameters which may impact a proposed development.

Site Grading Analyses

CEC is experienced in the preparation of site grading plans producing balanced earthwork conditions. We have developed and evaluated grading plans for sites involving as little as a few thousand cubic yards to over several million cubic yards of earthmoving.

Our site grading services consider other pertinent aspects of site development, such as slope stability, drainage, and stormwater management.

Erosion and Sedimentation Control

CEC staff members have considerable hydrologic and hydraulic design experience and a proven track record of successfully obtaining local, state, and Federal erosion and sedimentation control permits and National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits for discharges of stormwater from construction and industrial activities.

Our objective is to integrate erosion and sedimentation control with post development stormwater management to reduce overall site construction costs.

Stormwater Management

CEC offers a comprehensive scope of stormwater management consulting services, including flood routing, stream relocations, hydrologic and hydraulic analyses, and stormwater detention. CEC has implemented stormwater detention measures for singular sites and for watersheds of greater than 2,000 acres.

Our utilization of comprehensive computer software enables us to analyze alternative stormwater detention measures and methodologies to satisfy site-specific regulatory requirements. We have successfully solved difficult stormwater management problems using both surface and underground detention measures.

Utility Design/Coordination

Our staff has demonstrated the ability to effectively coordinate and negotiate with electric, natural gas, telephone, and cable television utility companies to provide service to new site developments. We design sanitary sewer collection and conveyance systems, sewage pumping, and on-site treatment facilities, and water distribution systems for domestic and fire protection needs.

Preparation of Construction Documents

CEC prepares complete construction plans and specifications for site development projects. We have a reputation for producing quality construction documents that are "buildable" and within reasonable construction budgets.

CEC can prepare site development construction specifications in CSI, Masterspec, or other desired formats.
