A commercial siteplan provides a comprehensive site plan layout and design for large scale development projects and commercial developers. It is a detailed, true to scale drawing of the property that may include current and permanent structures as well as the proposed additions.
The details actually depend on your specific construction project. Whether it is residential or commercial project, the common things that usually get included in a commercial site plan are the property lines, primary structures, major landscaping, driveways, existing pools, pathways, parking, signs and lights, easements, fire hydrants, surrounding streets and many more.
Site plans and specifications include all the construction documents, building plans and schematics, floor plans and land use documents. They provide a road map of the property development when it was first built, how it was built and for what purpose.
During the initial planning and budgeting phase of the development project, you may need a concept plan. This generally begins by assessing the potential site for development, which often times include writing a feasibility analysis.
The evaluation stage helps determine which areas are poor for development and which are more suitable depending on the site orientation, zoning topography and regulatory constraints.
To maximize development yield and return on investment, especially with the mixed use and residential developments, the project has to be reviewed for compliance with the applicable codes. The review consists of acceptance of the site plan, meeting for a pre-application and acceptance of the engineering phase.
Commercial site plans provide an innovative, comprehensive and cost effective design for clients so they would be able to procure the necessary permits and approvals as well as make informed decisions about the infrastructure. The goal is to create easy to read construction documents for the general contractor and owners.
Well prepared site plans are the guiding documents of a successful construction project. From small parking lots to major commercial complexes, detailed site plans with value engineered solutions can easily obtain regulatory permits and help you achieve development goals.
You cannot afford not to have a commercial site plan. It shows site specific constraints and works with the site, not against it. You are able to save millions of dollars from unnecessary construction costs by simply creating the best design for the project site. Call Ludlow Engineering 435 623 0897!
