All projects – from commercial businesses and residential areas to parks and recreational facilities depend on comprehensive land planning, design, and development. Without engineering and landscape architecture, the developments that make our communities the vibrant and functional places they are would be impossible. From private to public sectors, the future you envision depends on land development.
What is Land Development?
Land development is the process of altering a landscape so that it better meets the residential, commercial, industrial, or recreational needs that shape our world. It’s a detail-oriented process that requires tons of planning.
Land development requires the collaboration of engineering and landscape architecture to plan and design a land to meet development goals while also working with the natural environment, surrounding communities, and pre-existing nearby structures. And like many other components of civil engineering, the land development process involves strict rules and regulations and requires the acquisition of government approvals before the physical development can begin.
Land development varies slightly from project to project, but for the most part, engineering and landscape architecture are combined to follow a general process with the assistance of consultants and project managers. The process involves the main stages of a thorough site assessment, conceptual site design, town planning/development approval, and construction.
While the stages may not seem too complex at first glance, each stage breaks down into a series of more detailed steps that require the knowledge, experience, and skill of an array of professionals.
During the land development process, under effective project management, engineering and landscape architecture professionals perform a long list of services. Some of these services are:
- Site planning, design, and layout
- Site feasibility studies
- Stormwater management, analysis, and design
- Streetscape design
- Recreational sites and trail design
- Parking design
- Utility coordination
- Sewage facility planning
- Floodplain analysis
- Grading and earthwork
