With a solid site evaluation and assessment, we are prepared to take on the site planning process using principles based on our desire to improve development outcomes through improvements in sustainability and design quality.
At GIS we work with landowners, both public and private, on the planning and development of their land. Our goal is to take full advantage of the natural terrain and incorporate awe-inspiring views.
When you have already acquired land or if you have a site that you are thinking about purchasing, then inviting our site experts to walk the site with you can provide you with unique insights and open your eyes to possibilities that you may not have realized.
As we conduct our site evaluation we will perform analysis on a variety of factors that can impact your site and your planned build.
We typically like to visit the site with you so that you can show us the exact location that you are planning to build, and also share with us the characteristics that you like most about the site. As we walk the site with you our knowledge of buildings and developing site will usually help us share ideas that can truly enhance your planned project.
As we study the site we will look at the topography, the native foliage and streams or waterways, drainage, forrestation, and also look to identify the environmental factors that we should consider as we plan the build. We will likely take a lot of pictures to keep a record and inform the architectural plans and drawings in the future.
When we have completed a site assessment, it can include a variety of information and factors, including potential variations for land use, such as:
Our ultimate goal is to make the most of your unique build site. As a result, real estate development with GIS includes everything from deciding where you might want to build, to feasibility studies, preparing a project proforma, defining scope and project costs, hiring surveyors or geotechnical consultants when necessary, and coordination with your chosen engineering and custom home or multi-family unit design team.
