  • Project Development and Environment (PD&E) studies

Low Impact Development

Applied Sciences provides comprehensive assistance in all phases of residential and commercial development, from site planning and engineering to environmental and water use permitting. Many of our sustainable development strategies produce capital and operational cost-savings, while also enhancing property aesthetics and value.

Applied Sciences’ commitment to sustainable development is reflected in its active participation in the Florida Green Building Coalition and theU.S. Green Building Council. The firm supports and promotes the USGBC’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System, the nationally accepted benchmark for design, construction and operation of high performance buildings. LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health: site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality. Applied Sciences offers specialized expertise in assisting clients meet LEED site development criteria by developing project-specific solutions for minimizing a development’s environmental footprint, reducing stormwater runoff, preserving natural spaces, and landscaping to reduce water use and heat island effects. Services include:

  • Commercial and Industrial site planning, engineering and permitting
  • Residential and multi-family site planning, engineering and permitting
  • Phase I and II environmental site assessments
  • Low Impact Development (LID) strategies
  • Developments of Regional Impact (DRI)
  • LEED certification support
