Land Development

Land Development

Land development encompasses a broad range of civil engineering project types including urban redevelopment, mixed-use, residential, commercial, and institutional. The engineers at GradyMinor are knowledgeable in all aspects of site design, pipeline, plumbing system, stormwater, transportation, hydraulics, and treatment design and have the experience necessary to identify and resolve a variety of problems associated with private municipal utility engineering and construction. Every project has unique needs, and GradyMinor’s extensive range of experience in all areas of development allows us to develop a specific approach to meet the vision, goals, and timelines of very project. Our extensive local experience includes projects ranging from single use redevelopment to multiuse 1,000 acre developments. GradyMinor provides all of the services necessary on most projects including:

  • Due Diligence
  • Site Design
  • Permitting
  • Cost Estimating
  • Construction Administration
  • Construction Engineering & Inspection (CEI)
  • Project Management
We have successfully completed large and small commercial developments, residential and multifamily developments, recreation facilities and parks, and government facilities for a wide variety of clients. The majority of GradyMinor’s work comes from repeat business. We have become the “go to” firm for many clients in Southwest Florida and we are known for having a “can do” attitude to accomplish the project goals. GradyMinor believes that success of any project relies on our ability to communicate directly and effectively with all other parties involved in the process, including Owners, Regulatory Agencies, Contractors, and the General Public. This communication serves to establish appropriate expectations of all involved and serves to foster the team environment that can be put to use to overcome challenges that may arise during a project.
