How We Work

how we workEARTH WIND WATER uses contemporary design procedures that benefit to their project by addressing today’s regulatory maze.  As they say, “there must be a method to the madness”.  We know that to efficiently design a project, you must approach things with great preparation.  Owners and builders fear the “surprise” problem.  The surprises we focus on are regulatory surprises.  These can be the most devastating but with our experience, they should also be avoided.

We say its like kayaking down a river.  You find the rocks and work hard to miss all of them.  How do we do this?  First and foremost – by working with a seasoned design team that continually communicates.  Our expertise in civil engineering and specialization in stormwater-science engineering is a big benefit to the team.
