Land Development

EEC has been providing development consulting for over two decades. We have assisted clients with entitlements, planning, engineering and surveying on projects from Kingman to Douglas. Projects have included commercial, industrial, medical, education, and institutional uses, as well as both multi-family and single-family residential and master planned communities. We have provided these services to both public and private clients. We have been successful in this market due to having senior project management and design professionals that work well with both clients and reviewing agencies to develop a project that meets our clients’ needs.
