Land Development Engineering for Residential Development on Lake Travis

The Austin Real Estate market continues to improve.  As evidence of the improvement, The Moore Group has been retained to provide land development services, including land planning, land development engineering, surveying, and construction administration for a new residential development on Lake Travis just west of Austin.  We are preparing the site plan for this development. L There is no sewage collection system in the area, so the land plan includes on-site sewage treatment.  The treated effluent will be used onsite to irrigate landscaping.

We are also designing an innovative storm water treatment facility.  The water quality pond system will use ponds in series and vegetative measures to remove pollutants from stormwater.  Grassy swales will convey storm water from rooftops to the water quality ponds, which are also called “Best Management Practices” or “BMP’s”.

The roads in the development will be private drives.  the use of private drives allows us more flexibility in laying out the land plan.  The building sites are carfully chosen to optimize the views of Lake Travis.

If you are contemplating a development in Austin or anywhere in Texas, give us a call.  We enjoy discussing new projects, and we can offer you some free advice as you select your project site.

Site Development Engineering & Planning for a Wedding Event Facility

The Moore Group has been retained to provide planning and site development engineering for a wedding event facility in the Texas Hill Country, northwest of Austin.   

The project will include 26 stand alone houses and an event center.  The buildings will all be designed to take advantage of passive solar heating and cooling. The buildings will be designed utilizing innovative insulation techniques and will provide natural air movement through the building by the use of carefully located vents. 

The Moore Group will design water amenities and water quality controls that work together to provide function and beauty.  Site runoff will be collected and used to irrigate the on-site landscaping.   

We will also design a Fire Protection system that will include a water storage tank and pump system.  This is needed because the facility will be located where the existing water system is only capable of providing domestic water service.  

The Moore Group will provide site development permitting for this project through a local municipality and Travis County. 

We will post more about this project as it proceeds and is permitted for construction.
