(H3) Land Planning and Design

Before any St. Charles County land development project can break ground, there are many steps necessary to ensure the intended results are met.

Pickett, Ray & Silver works with land developers and construction managers to determine their goals and vision. Then we evaluate criteria on the potential site, such as, the slope and orientation of the land, types of soil and vegetation, and parcel ownership.

St. Charles County zoning laws are a factor that must be considered. We ensure that the type of structure intended for the site will meet those zoning restrictions. If necessary, we will prepare the appropriate documentation to submit to any local committees for review.

The deliverable is a comprehensive plan that we prepare that includes viable solutions for the design and development of the property.

Our Drone Technology

Pickett, Ray & Silver is very proud of our technology-driven engineering and surveying solutions. We use drones in St. Charles County to produce high-resolution, 3-D models of the land. The drones are operated by pilots certified by the FAA specifically for this technology.

Using this advanced process enables us to deliver higher quality images, even when the area has little to no data available. Drone technology has many advantages over traditional survey technology. Drones take the place of several traditional surveying tools. They also do the work of humans canvassing the terrain, making the process safer for all involved.  Using drone technology saves time and money, and results are more accurate.
