The Grass Valley Main Street Project included replacement of the paving and sidewalks and the addition of planters and inlay cross-walks. This investment by Grass Valley complimented the private investments of downtown merchants to make the heart of town more vibrant than ever before. Our services included the design survey, design, construction staking, and involvement throughout construction. This project won the Engineers' Association of Nevada County Project of the Year Award.

Its combination of housing types, front yards landscaped by the developer, and convenient location have made it one of the most successful projects in Western Nevada County. Project manager Tony Medler is a master at phasing the project to meet market demand. We did the land use planning, entitlement, infrastructure design, construction staking, subdivision mapping, and lot surveys. Back to top

Residential - Rural

Sierra Woodlands is a rural subdivision consisting of lots that are 1.5 acres and larger. The project is served by public water and individual septic systems. It has become the address of many prestigious homes that are beautifully integrated into the natural landscape. We did the land use planning, entitlement through Nevada County, infrastructure design, construction staking, final subdivision map, and lot surveys. Back to top
