Economic development is an advanced collaboration between the public and private sectors within cities, villages, and towns. Traditionally, a municipality’s goals are to continue new job growth, increase property tax revenue, and maintain an enjoyable and charming community. Similarly, businesses are focused on increasing profits and growth opportunities.

At Ruekert & Mielke, Inc. (R/M), our experts work collaboratively with our clients to align the common interests of business and municipal clients, and our experience aids in expeditious project development that anticipates regulations, standards, and permit requirements. Our background in site development projects ranges in size from less than one acre to more than 80 acres and includes developing grading and drainage plans, erosion and sediment control plans, storm water management plans, the design of vehicular and pedestrian traffic facilities, and underground infrastructure.

R/M helped us with the planning, permitting, and management of several major campus-improvement projects for the Thermo Fisher Scientific – Madison site, including construction of a new road and parking lots, storm water improvements, and repaving our main road. Their excellent project management allowed us to limit disruption to our business during construction, while successfully staying within our budget, managing multiple contractors, and meeting our deadlines.
