Heritage Walk – phase 2a



We bring decades of experience to the permitting process. During Phase 2A of Heritage Walk construction, our engineers navigated a difficult permitting process, all while meeting – and often pleasantly surpassing – expected timelines and promised budgets.

We spent months designing ways to prevent upstream flooding and damage. Obtaining permit-approval by federal, regional and local authorities can quickly turn complex and time-consuming, yet efficiently navigating this process is one of our core strengths. We have extensive experience and expertise that makes the permitting process a seamless and hassle-free endeavor. 

Our engineers created a two-phase permitting approach, timelining the more complex permitting process for later in the build and finishing the more basic and direct permitting process first. This allowed an efficient build supported by efficient permitting. 

We kept those more complex permitting and design processes for later so we can get the homebuilders lots as quickly as possible,” CEG founder Rocky Chambers explained. 

 Our engineers are monitoring ongoing, long-term modeling that predicts the flood patterns of the area, which will allow us to properly protect all aspects of the community. 

We also implemented another signature approach: movable detention ponds. Building an initial detention pond to satisfy the initial needs of Phase 2A, our engineers also designed a plan to relocate the first pond while creating other ponds to accommodate Phase 2A’s build. It’s skillful, nimble and far more efficient than one standard start-to-finish pond.

“We created a multiphase approach to our detention ponds,” said Chambers. 

Our commitment to detail allows the preservation of so much of the land – including a massive black walnut on-site – while also shaving months off project timelines through precise design. Instead of building new roads, for example, we slightly shifted the direction of multiple lots to face an existing road. Along with the community area, pool, clubhouse and multiple public spaces, Heritage Walk represents an innovative community designed and built with efficiency, care and vision. 

“We look for creative ways to cut months and years off the design and permitting process to get lots as quickly as possible for homebuilders,” said Chambers.
