Project Previews

For decades as we have worked with Architects, Developers and Engineers, they have asked for a “quick and dirty” idea of what their planned project would look like on this or that piece of property.

We would begin the process of assembling the site information and develop a base-sheet.  Then, we could start laying out their project alternatives.  Even under the best of circumstances, it would take a couple of days to a week.  And, because of the circumstances – we would have to “eat the cost” of doing most of this work, always hoping that we would get the contract to do the actual design.

Not Anymore…

Now by using our computer-aided-design software coupled with other design and visualization products, we can give the client much, much more information in less time.  Now we can extrapolate site existing conditions using special software to grab available information from local, state and federal GIS sources to rapidly develop a base-sheet.  Then using “artificial intelligence” augmented design tools we can layout the subdivision, commercial center or apartment project. And all of this can be done in about a day.  (Obviously, it depends on what else we have going on in the office at the time, but the takeaway is that this gives you more, better and quicker information – which also means it is less costly.

If you have an upcoming project, let us show you a Rapid Project Preview!

Another valuable use of this effort is to get a quick and inexpensive prototype visualization of your project.  Get a view of the concept upfront.  Give us a try on your next project.  To learn more, click here.

Our SLIP Design Process

We are often asked by design-teams "what's different about designing for low environmental impact projects"?  The answer is that we "SLIP" a couple of things into the normal process. SLIP refers to a "Sensitive Low Impact Project".  Low-Impact development is simply...

36 Acre Truck Parking Facility is Designed

Earth Wind Water Civil Engineering has completed the design of a large light industrial park near San Diego's Brown Field, cargo airport.  Similar to many of our previous projects in this area (called Otay Mesa) the transportation facility will meet a need created by...

Site Development Visualization

We are often asked ... Why do you offer a service to do "visualizations" of engineering projects? It's a fair question.  And the answer is not based on high-technology or anything like that.  It is because all decision-makers who approve civil engineering projects (no...

Earth Wind Water Completes Urban Infill Project

Even though we have completed almost 100 water quality projects in San Diego, it is still satisfying to reach approval on the design of another one.  Our most recent project, a 14 unit apartment "in-fill-project" located in eastern San Diego.  The project was designed...
