We understand that there are unique aspects to every client and every project and tap into our depth of expertise to balance those distinct characteristics with project parameters.
OUR INNOVATIVE APPROACH SAVES YOU TIME & MORE…
We think outside the box of every-day engineering processes by making full use of internet technologies and refined in-house work procedures. There’s one thing our clients appreciate the most, it’s that we turn chaos into order and tight schedules into successful projects. Here’s how we do it:
Site Investigations & Due Dilligence
Developing a new site can be complicated and painstaking. Machado | Patano understands the process as well as the issues involved, and takes a strategic approach to obtain approvals. Starting with investigation and due diligence, we identify the site features, resources, and constraints that will enter into the planning and design process. This may involve access, zoning or land features, such as topography, soils, wetlands, floodplains, and navigable streams.
We will also determine the plan approval process and required permits. Our dedicated team will guide you through the process, keeping you on target and on time. Whether your project is ground-up or inline, it can be overwhelming to figure out where to start. Evaluating the process and issues early helps manage expectations, save time, and avoid unnecessary expenses.
Regulatory Permit Approval
Machado | Patano regularly acts as a client representative in seeking planning and zoning clearances and approvals. We take a proactive role in seeking the various state and local approvals and permits for the projects. Our efforts keep the development process on schedule.
We will assist with the preparation of the applications and submittals discovered during Due Diligence, as well as, coordinating the preparation and processing of the entitlement applications. Our coordinated and thorough approach often results in quicker agency reviews and approvals.
Commerical Site Development Plans
Our approach to site development saves our clients valuable time in the review process, and considerable money in the construction phase. We will assist with Site Plan preparation, then perform Grading Plan design, Earthwork Computations, Erosion Control features, Tree Clearing plans, Site Demolition Plans, design of Sanitary Sewers, Watermains, and Storm Sewers, preparation of Storm Water Management Reports, Pond design, rain gardens, coordination with dry utilities such as electric and natural gas, street, roadway, and parking lot design, ADA access, pavement marking and traffic signage.
Site Design & Construction Documents
Our experience in site design and construction assures that Machado | Patano is the best firm to develop the design and construction documents. Quality control is incorporated at the start of the every project when a team of experienced engineers work together to draft the design and construction document plans.
Our attention to detail combined with our expertise in managing permitting and zoning processes puts us on a higher level than over other firms who try to control quality from the wrong end of the project.
Machado | Patano provides comprehensive construction management services for private and public agencies encompassing projects in retail and residential development, entertainment, medical, educational and commercial markets.
Whether a project requires a professional Construction Manager to augment the owner’s staff with pre-planning, design, construction, engineering and management expertise or an on-site construction team consisting of resident engineers and inspectors for reviewing work in-progress, we have the experience and expertise to carry out successful field programs.
