Services provided include: zoning, topography, water/wastewater, franchise utilities, flood plain, site grading, site drainage, parking, site layout, and construction costs.

Residential Design

Tye Engineering and Surveying has provided engineering services for over 30 subdivisions in Oregon. We provide a wide range of services for Portland residential development, including the review of land use zones and development possibilities. We provide tentative plats, grading plans, construction plans, and final plats. Our projects range from 2 lot partitions, standard subdivisions, planned unit developments, cluster developments, townhomes, apartments and condominiums.

We also provide infrastructure consulting for residential projects. We do project feasibility for sewer, water, and transportation systems and review them for potential impact analysis. Infrastructure is critical for making any Portland residential project work but can also have significant cost implications. These cost implications are important to know on the onset of a residential project.
