Apartment development

photo of apartment buildingW. B. Wells has vast experience in apartment design. Over the years we have provided complete planning, surveying and civil design for thousands of units.

We start with a boundary survey. Site plans based on a tax map, rather than a survey, cause considerable trouble and expense to your development by causing redesign and additional municipal review.

The second phase of apartment development is a design survey. This involves field location for design purposes and may include topographic, tree and wetland surveys. If these surveys are not performed, it can require considerable expense to overcome unknown or unidentified items on a project.

The site plan is prepared to take advantage of the natural features of the site and a grading plan is prepared. Our grading plans provide economical solutions prior to construction. Unplanned for retaining walls and/or stairs not only add un-budgeted expenses, but can destroy the aesthetic design of the project. After the grading plan is complete, utility and drainage plans are prepared.

During the construction of your project we can provide inspections for all public improvements and utilities.

We provide complete services for your apartment project. A complete project package will save you considerable money.

We solve problems on paper, prior to construction, eliminating expensive extra work items.
