Engineering for Commercial Development
Because we know markets change and we must be able to meet the demands of both commercial and residential projects, FOCUS determined the best way to truly meet client needs and expectations was to provide two distinct site civil engineering departments: residential and commercial. Our two departments comprise experts who fully understand the complexities of their specialization.
Our Site Civil Commercial team creates solutions for apartments, office buildings, and schools as well as retail, medical and industrial buildings. While a commercial site plan can be small, there are a lot of details that go into optimizing the functionality and practicality of our design.
With a commercial project, including apartments and townhomes, engineering design starts with accessibility requirements prescribed by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Clients rely on FOCUS to be knowledgeable and guide projects so small features that are required by law are not overlooked. Strong existing relationships with local municipalities, utilities, and government agencies aid in obtaining approvals in a timely manner.
Department Manager Travis Benson knows frequent communication with an architect and subconsultant team are critical to meeting aggressive design and construction schedules. Our team embraces collaboration and encourages creative ideas and practical solutions to best serve client needs.
