Our capital improvement projects take many years from start to finish. The process typically includes the following phases:

  • Preliminary Engineering – when a solution is identified and costs are estimated.
  • Design – when the details are worked out and construction plans are drawn up.
  • Permitting and Bidding – when a contractor is hired and all permits are acquired.
  • Construction – when the project is built.

The preliminary engineering phase was completed in August 2022.
