LID Site Development

Our approach integrates Low Impact Development (LID) techniques across all project sites, prioritizing cost-effectiveness without compromising long-term success or delaying permit approvals. Site selection for building placement necessitates meticulous consideration of various constraints, aiming for optimal site utilization, preservation of existing site characteristics, and favorable building orientation to maximize the use of sunlight and minimize the effects of weather patterns. This integration encompasses public and bus access points, on-site pedestrian circulation, and efficient service yard logistics.
Strategies employed include maintaining existing site topography to minimize earth movement, reducing paved areas for vehicle access, and implementing rain gardens for efficient rainwater collection and distribution. Integration of Underground Injection Control (UIC) wells facilitates stormwater dispersal, significantly mitigating stormwater runoff impact on local systems.
Furthermore, the utilization of pervious pavement for fire loops, play areas, and walking paths optimizes surface functionality. We prioritize the preservation of existing environmental features like trees, native growth, and wetlands or creeks wherever feasible, enhancing ecological integrity.
Consultation with our various consultants during design and throughout the site development process ensures a harmonious interaction between the site and the natural environment. Therefore reducing the impacts on the natural environment.
