Civil Engineering & Site Design

Site planning and development are crucial first steps towards transforming your land into a valuable resource that benefits clients and communities. DKE has the technical and regulatory expertise to help you make the most out of your unique parcel of land.

We offer full-service sustainable design and engineering solutions from start to finish.

Pre-Development: We start by identifying your site’s existing conditions including the environmental impacts and liabilities, permitting requirements, and subsurface characteristics. We also provide land acquisition and planning, feasibility studies, surveying, wetlands delineation, zoning, and conceptual planning.

Design: Our team designs every aspect of the site layout including parking, utility locations, storm water mitigation, building foundations, and landscape design.

Construction: Our construction phase services include preparing bid documents, specifications, construction inspection, and managing the permitting process to ensure that the final project meets your vision.
