Civil Engineering/Private Development

Nothing ignites community growth and prosperity like new residential, commercial, and industrial development. Nothing secures the future of communities like risk-taking visionaries who invest in the transformation of empty spaces, urban blight, historical cityscapes, and local people. And the regional partners that help them.

CRANSTON, for more than half a century, has been collaborating with such visionaries to turn their dreams into safe, connected, compliant, and thriving realities that create new residential subdivisions, recreational hubs, mixed-use developments, jobs, tax revenue, and, ultimately, better communities.

We help them navigate zoning, environmental, and permitting requirements with local, state, and federal authorities. We map and survey their land, create plans, and prepare their sites for building. We engineer roads, rails, stormwater management systems, and utilities plans. And we provide construction administration to oversee and inspect the building construction progress.

We empower entirely new communities to thrive.
