For civil engineers, industrial subdivision projects can be extremely challenging. Here’s how these experts optimize these processes. 

Unlike residential subdivision projects that are usually very straightforward, industrial subdivision projects are usually multifaceted and extremely complex. That’s mainly because most of these projects are executed on vast pieces of land. The bigger the land, the more units and details involved in the project. Industrial facilities consist of countless elements, features, and factors. Civil engineers need to assess the foundational needs of the industrial project before they start the subdivision process. The main goal is to construct multiple lots that all combine to create a productive industrial facility. 

Every year, hundreds of industrial subdivision projects are launched, executed, and cancelled across the country. Businesses pin their hopes on these projects as they determine their production capacities and industry value. Hence industrial subdivisions are extremely complex processes. Top civil engineering and construction firms optimize these processes by – 

Setting Up a Fixed Design

Although industrial subdivision projects are always prone to changes and modifications, civil engineers create preliminary designs and stick to them. The primary design outlines how different elements of the industrial facility need to be arranged, what the key access points will be to the construction site, and the important utility systems (pipelines, drainage systems, etc.). Then, the construction and engineering experts strictly define the various stages of the development process. These stages include – 

  • Creating a basic development plan.  
  • Obtaining legal documents.
  • Designing the subdivisions.
  • Collecting detailed measurements of each unit and plot.
  • Detailed plot drawings.
  • Discussions with legal teams to avoid potential legal loopholes.  

Smart business owners also allocate a cost-cutting expert during the early stages of planning. These experts help their clients cost-effectively allocate all resources. 

Preparing for Disposal of Waste

All industrial subdivision projects intend to properly allocate different industry units to ensure industrial activities are optimized and not halted during the transition from the old facility to the new one. Top civil engineering firms do more than just that. They also allocate the waste that’s generated during these processes to safe locations. Safe and responsible waste disposal is key to ensuring the environmental impact of the construction process is minimal. So, project managers ensure there’s adequate space and infrastructure for safe waste disposal long before construction kicks off. 

Setting up Water Resources

All industrial facilities need large amounts of water to stay functional on a daily basis. Given that water scarcity issues are so common these days, the industrial subdivision process must include the setting up of proper water resources for several years to come. 

To do this, civil engineering experts undertake advanced groundwater management efforts. They also look for spaces and opportunities to carry out innovative water generation processes such as rainwater harvesting. Setting up a proper stormwater management system is also vital for keeping the industrial facility safe at all times. Local councils are very strict about maintaining the groundwater levels and tables. So, ensuring there’s no water scarcity in the land where the industry is set to be constructed is an underrated yet vital task for all industrial subdivision experts.
