Land Development

Our engineers and planners work closely with commercial, retail, residential, and muncipal development teams to help turn both greenfields and brownfields into functional space. We can help with everything from initial site selection to site layout, utilities, environmental, and even architecture and engineering for structures on the site. Our experience includes serving as an on-call engineer to several big box and restaurant chains to develop new parcels for their facilities state-wide. We assist throughout the process, working closely with our clients and other consultants involved in the project. We help obtain zoning and site approvals from appropriate municipal boards, presenting at public hearings, addressing potential environmental issues in the SEQR review process, and designing site utilities, gradings, parking layouts, site access, traffic studies, and real estate market analysis. C&S has years of experience assisting municipalities and developers with infrastructure management, including the investigation, analysis, study, rehabilitation, design, and construction observation of both public and private sanitary sewer, water, and storm drainage facilities. We provide review, design, coordination, inspection, and construction management services. We have developed excellent working relationships with representatives from the various regulatory and permitting agencies, providing for timely and efficient project reviews and approvals.
