Distinct Services servicing a Unique Market
Every community uses its own unique Land Development Code, and follows a unique process for permitting through Boards, Commissions and ultimately the City Council. …and yet, these unique development characteristics are captured in a development process that starts with ZONING, moves to SUBDIVISION, and ends with a SITE PLAN including CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTS. CFE can provide a development assessment report for your project that summarizes issues related to zoning, subdivision and site plan, and CFE will deliver a report that “paints a picture” of the entitlement process including scope, project timelines, and estimated fees and construction costs. CFE’s value proposition states that by performing this work at the outset of the development process, we can save you money by reducing financial risk associated with processing delays and changes during construction.
CFE is structured and staffed to assist your every commercial land development need: planning, survey, project management, and engineering -- starting with site acquisition, continuing with due diligence studies, entitlement, planning and design, bidding assistance, construction administration, and ending with post-construction documentation.
CFE Professional Staff and Management Approach
CFE’s Commercial Development Management Team consists of experienced Project Managers, Professional Engineers (PE’s) and exceptional CADD Technicians and Designers. While we encourage communication between the client and staff at all levels, each project is assigned a primary point of contact. Project scope, schedule and budget is reviewed weekly, and we are committed to providing a Weekly Status Report that summarizes actionable tasks, items required to complete the task, estimated completion date, and assignment of responsibility for completion of each task. CFE also communicates using “Site Tracker”, our web based Project Management tool. On Site Tracker, you can access a variety of reports, photographs, exhibits, and other project related information 24-7 from any location.
CFE’s Commercial Development Team includes “in-house” survey professionals that can provide Land Title surveys to ALTA standards. Our survey crews are outfitted with state of the art field equipment including high-end GPS stations and sophisticated robotic total stations. This equipment allows us to perform more efficiently with superior accuracy and shorter turnaround. We continue to develop great working relationships with both local and national Title companies, and we are also experienced in obtaining records using CFE internal resources.
CFE prepares construction documents using AutoCAD Civil 3D software. AutoCAD® Civil 3D® software is the leading civil engineering design application and provides our project teams with a more comprehensive surveying, design, analysis, and documentation solution that enables CFE to complete land development projects faster and with improved accuracy. AutoCAD Civil 3D provides CFE the tools needed to create coordinated, reliable design information; optimize designs with analysis, simulation, and visualization; and deliver higher-quality documentation and digital models for construction and operations. The model-centric technology at the core of AutoCAD Civil 3D helps to keep design, analysis, and documentation coordinated in a way that minimizes errors and omissions, accelerates decision making, and shortens production time.
