Land Disturbance Plans, Stormwater Management, Pump/Sewer/Septic Systems, Parking Facilities, Storage Tank Systems, Erosion/Sedimentation Control, Site Development
We show clients how to maximize the use of their site by incorporating site infrastructure in a manner that is economical, unobtrusive, and contextually responsive. Our site engineering provides solutions in the most complicated of development projects, and our engineers remain engaged and with the other design professionals throughout the entire design process.
All of our site designs are tailored to integrate the specific needs of our clients with the natural and man-made features of the land. This combination is the basis for our responsible and well-balanced site concepts.
Invoking art and science, WPL backs these concepts with solid engineering to create high quality site designs. While providing necessary infrastructure for every site, our engineers also lead in the site design process with concentration in land development, municipal engineering, storm water management, transportation, and construction administration.
We strive to make areas of land more productive for the landowner. Often, we are presented with an undeveloped parcel where the landowner wants us to explore the feasibility of an idea for its development. Whether it is a series of apartments, single-family homes, retail, office, resort, or other land use, WPL applies a talented complement of surveyors, civil engineers, and landscape architects on all land development projects. We can offer a peace of mind on the viability of a project to reach its full potential before a client commits to buying land or taking out construction loans.
Stormwater management is an item that is required on virtually any site design. In most cases, new or redeveloped sites create an increase in impervious areas. These impervious areas create stormwater runoff and pollutants which eventually reach our waterways. To help protect our waterways, each site employs a technique to reduce runoff quantity and pollutants. Some of these techniques may involve stormwater infiltration, bioretention beds, stormwater ponds, or even third-party constructed filtering systems. Depending on the project, the final design could use one or a combination of these items and is integrated into the final site design.
