Land Development: How to build a structure on your land in Texas

As a leader in civil, structural, and environmental engineering services, JRH Engineering & Environmental Services, Inc. is your one-stop shop for land development in Texas. We are proud to be a certified Woman Business Enterprise (WBE), Historically Underutilized Business (HUB), and Woman Owned Small Business (WOSB), reflecting our commitment to diversity and inclusion in the engineering industry[1].

Comprehensive Land Development Services

Our services encompass all stages of land development, from feasibility studies to project closeout. We specialize in residential, commercial, and industrial projects, with a strong presence in the metropolitan areas of Houston, Dallas, Austin, San Antonio, Corpus Christi, Galveston Bay, and Beaumont.

Feasibility Study

Our team of experts conducts comprehensive feasibility studies to assess the viability of your project. We evaluate the site's potential, considering factors such as zoning regulations, environmental constraints, and market conditions.

Site Development Design

We offer specialized expertise in site development design, including layout plans, utility plans, grading/drainage plans, and erosion control plans[16]. Our team works closely with owners and contractors to achieve cost-effective site layouts.


Navigating the permitting process can be complex and time-consuming. Our team has the knowledge and experience to streamline this process, ensuring all necessary permits are obtained in a timely manner[7].

Bid Administration

We assist in the bid administration process to acquire a general contractor. Our team ensures that all bids are evaluated fairly and objectively, helping you select the most qualified contractor for your project.

Project Administration

Throughout the project, we provide ongoing administration services to ensure that everything runs smoothly. We coordinate with all parties involved, from contractors to regulatory agencies, to keep the project on track and within budget.

Land Clearing

Before construction can begin, the land must be prepared. We oversee the land-clearing process, ensuring that it is done in a way that minimizes environmental impact and complies with all relevant regulations.

Project Construction

During the construction phase, we provide oversight to ensure that the project is executed according to the design plans. We monitor the quality of work, manage any changes, and resolve any issues that may arise.

Project Completion and Acceptance

Once construction is complete, we conduct a thorough inspection to ensure that the project meets all design specifications and quality standards. We then facilitate the project acceptance process with the relevant authorities.

Project Closeout

After project acceptance, we handle the project closeout process. This includes finalizing all contracts, resolving any remaining issues, and ensuring that all project documentation is complete and accurate.

WBE/WOSB/HUB Certification

As a WBE and HUB certified firm, we are recognized for our commitment to providing opportunities for women and historically underutilized businesses in the engineering industry. In addition to these certifications, we are also a certified Woman Owned Small Business (WOSB) by the Small Business Administration (SBA). These certifications underscore our commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion in the engineering industry.
