Property development can go through a variety of differing steps, but in the A/E/C world, it is typically split into three different stages. Stage one is the pre-development stage, stage two is construction stage, and stage three is post-development. These steps coincide with the work that WPL does when performing site planning- we start with civil engineering and surveying in the pre-development stage, we continue with construction management in the construction stage while planning the site with landscape architecture until transforming into stage three of post-development.
During the pre-development stage, you want to ensure that you have the proper plans that have been reviewed and checked by experts in the industry, such as civil engineers and surveyors. These experts know how to ensure that your property is in the state that it needs to be in before it can be constructed. This helps to lessen the common problems that you may run into during construction and post-construction.
Once the pre-development stage is completed, the construction management stage starts, and this is very relevant in making sure that building is structurally-sound when built. The construction management stage helps, once again, to mitigate problems, delays, and extra costs. During the construction management stage, landscape architects and designers can start their planning process that will wrap up after post-development.
The post-development stage helps to make your property beautiful, functional, and boost property your future property value. This stage can also help to make sure that you are more environmentally friendly, as landscape architects know how to make the most use out of your property. This is typically the most ‘fun’ part of the process as the owner of the property can get involved and put their own touches on it. Then you are ready to utilize your new property!
All of these stages are stages that WPL can help you with, call us today to walk through the stages of developing your new property at 757-431-1041.
