Land Development

VHB works with developers, institutions, state, local and federal agencies, and economic development agencies to create great places and valuable assets. We plan and design quality environments that attract end users, tenants, and investment capital. VHB understands the development process and critical steps to meet owners' timelines. From conceptual design and due diligence to the first day of construction, we know what it takes to get open for business.

VHB has the technical excellence to predict the amount of development yield and capacity for a site. We study alternatives, anticipate challenges, identify mitigation costs, and create site plans with realistic schedules that provide our clients with the flexibility to meet dynamic programs and development schedules. When our clients understand the development yield and timeframe for opening, they can make sound investment decisions.
