Services: Driveway Design

picture of driveway projectAre you looking to build your dream house? Prior to picking out that stainless steel refrigerator or bathroom tile, it is extremely important to determine the location of the driveway that will service the site. While this may seem somewhat straightforward (and not that exciting), the design of the driveway can play a huge role in the actual placement of the house. Each municipality has specific driveway design requirements that pertain to grading, slopes, materials, dimensions, and setbacks that affect how a driveway can be constructed on a property.

Depending on which municipality your property is located and the property’s proximity to natural resources, you may be limited as to where and how you will be able to access your property and furthermore where you will be able to locate key aspects such as the house, utilities, septic system, and well. The staff of Arthur H. Howland & Associates, P.C. has a great deal of knowledge and expertise in designing driveways that comply with local, state, and federal regulations. Since our staff is adept at the many facets of site design, we provide driveway designs that take into account all aspects of a site (i.e. natural resources, septic system, house location, well) rather than focusing only on making sure that the driveway works. It is this “outside the box” mentality that keeps our clients satisfied project after project.

Contact us at (860) 354-9346 to discuss how we can help design a driveway that meets your vision and needs while still meeting local, state, and federal land use regulations.
