Site Design & Engineering

Maximizing the Value of Your Property's Features

Positioning a building on a site is a nuanced process involving numerous considerations. Setbacks; sun angles; views, both from the building and to the building; vehicular, truck, and pedestrian access; and natural features such as trees, swales, waterways, etc., are all factors Widseth’s architects and engineers take into account when looking at the most efficient site layout for your project.

Site Design Engineering Site Investigation

Site Investigation / Research

Widseth’s team begins by researching your site and its surrounding area, exploring such features and issues as:

  • Zoning
  • Topography
  • Existing utilities
  • Access
  • Environmental considerations
  • Stormwater / surface water management
Site Design Engineering Conceptual Plan

Conceptual Plan

We will test a conceptual plan—or multiple concepts, at your discretion—to ensure we’re “checking all the boxes,” such as:

  • Maximizing views to and from the facility
  • Enhancing sustainable energy goals
  • Avoiding conflicts with existing or planned infrastructure
  • Ensuring safe vehicular, truck, and pedestrian access and navigation
Site Design & Engineering - Construction Documents

Construction Documents

When the conceptual site plan aligns as closely as possible with your goals and vision, Widseth’s team gets to work on completing thorough, detailed construction documents that will:

  • Satisfy applicable ordinances, regulations, and building codes
  • Clearly communicate the design intent
  • Streamline the construction process
