This engineering discipline involves several components that when combined complete the ideal work area. Whether that be for municipal use in modern work spaces or for commercial use focused on prime functionality and cost efficiency, DMK has got the team to make it all happen. 




Permitting is one of the most important aspects of the site design plan. It will determine if your plan is workable or if you have to readjust. Some of the permitting hurdles our teams face are local site approval, State and Federal stormwater and environmental concerns with Southwest Florida Water Management District and the Army Corps of Engineers, or even state utility permits for water and sewer concerns with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. 


Throughout our 40 years in Southwest Florida, DMK has built relationships with local subconsultants in several disciplines. One of DMK's values is to establish and maintain working relationships with local companies whose values align with ours. We also find it fundamental to hire local subconsultants to increase our impact in the local economy, further helping our communities as a whole.

Attainable Housing

DMK is well aware of the issues that arise when developers want to start planning a new commercial site plan. Despite these concerns, according to Freddie Mac, Florida is faced with the nation's fourth-highest housing deficit. While keeping environmental concerns in mind, new development and re-development of existing buildings in urban areas is inevitable. Mike Vogal of Florida Trend, also mentions some governmental changes that could be implemented to decrease restrictions on developers such as the change of densities, zoning rules, regulations, and impact fees. North Port has taken the chance of decreasing their commercial and residential development by increasing their impact fees on new construction. Check out their new rates here.
