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 focus on increased profits and growth opportunities. A site development project is most successful when utilizing a civil engineering consultant with experience in both the public and private sectors. 

Ruekert & Mielke, Inc. (R/M), comprised of site development and municipal engineers, has a wide range of experience with public and private sectors. Our background in site development projects range in size from less than one acre to greater than 80 acres in both redevelopment and new development projects. Projects include developing grading and drainage plans, erosion control plans, storm water plans, the design of vehicular and pedestrian traffic facilities, and underground infrastructure.

R/M’s experts will work collaboratively to align the common interests of the business and municipality. Our experience will allow for expeditious project development that anticipates regulations, standards, and permit requirements. R/M has worked closely with site development partners to achieve LEED credits through innovative techniques in the site development process.
