Introduction to Land Development Engineering
Like our clients, we have a vested interest in the success of our communities. These are the places we live, work, and play, and we appreciate our role in ensuring these communities thrive. Understanding the political climate and policies that affect our communities enables us to explore the best possible solutions that satisfy approval agencies, avoid delays, prioritize common objectives, mitigate risk, and ensure smooth project delivery.
Our team marries creative vision with a comprehensive understanding of the technical, financial, and practical facets of land development. We guide our clients from the initial due diligence period of a land purchase, through the planning and environmental approvals processes, and ultimately with the design, construction, and assumption of the project. At the earliest stages, we confirm feasibility, identify infrastructure requirements, engage regulatory agencies, and establish development principles. Through the subsequent stages, we align our work to support planning processes, provide field services during construction, coordinate with builders, and provide community cost sharing support. Our comprehensive expertise in municipal services, drainage and stormwater management, low impact development, and cost sharing engineering ensures the needs of our clients are understood and met.
TMIG has extensive experience with the planning, design, and delivery of site plan engineering projects, yielding successful industrial, commercial, institutional, residential, and mixed-use development in both greenfield and brownfield settings. We work with landowners, architects, and planners to facilitate the development vision and ensure that plans can be serviced and approved on time and on budget. Our team uses their knowledge of local regulations and agency relationships to navigate evolving approval requirements to ensure regulatory compliance and mitigate costly project delays.
TMIG provides a range of services to facilitate community growth and development. We have designed and implemented many new development and redevelopment subdivisions in the GTA. We recognize that our clients are often under tight deadlines and are subject to continuously evolving development policies. The TMIG team focuses its approach on effective time and scope management to ensure the design product remains on track and does not incur extra costs to the client. We utilize our experience and understanding of subdivision design and the approval and construction process to ensure we provide high quality and economically sustainable services with the utmost efficiency.
BLOCK / SECONDARY PLANS
One of the most significant challenges to obtaining planning approvals for block or secondary plans is the evolving regulatory authority requirements. The TMIG team keeps itself apprised of the newest and most current requirements through maintaining our lines of communication and relationships with municipalities, conservation authorities, and other relevant decision makers in this field. Our project experience with the successful implementation of many development plans provides us with the confidence and authority to manage what it takes to expedite the approval process, guide the project through to the next stages with fewer issues, and strike the balance between natural features and development yield.
