Site Planning

The Problem

Site planning for the types of projects in which SAI participates can be extremely complex. Regulatory requirements for these sites can often be conflicting, requiring intensive agency interaction and coordination in the early phases of the project. Urban and industrial sites can have a wide variety of historical uses that must be evaluated and assessed before much site planning can even begin. SAI staff has extensive knowledge and experience in all phases of project site planning.

Some of the potential issues that can be present at any given site, and which have been handled successfully by SAI staff, include:

  • Hazardous materials
  • Solid Waste
  • Surface and Groundwater contamination
  • Stormwater management
  • Wetlands
  • Geotechnical
  • Traffic
  • Natural Heritage/Threatened and Endangered Species
  • Cultural Resources

The Solution

    SAI provides civil engineering services for site development, including:

  • Preparation of conceptual, preliminary and final site plans and subdivision design
  • Performance of Preliminary Assessments/Phase I Site Assessments/Phase IIs
  • Testimony before planning and zoning boards
  • Stormwater management
  • Design of site utilities
  • Soil erosion and sediment control plans
  • Assistance in obtaining construction and other related local, state or federal permits
