Joe has nearly 15 years of experience in residential/commercial development sites, municipal engineering, due diligence studies, cross-discipline coordination, and construction oversight, working with major box retailers and residential developers.  He  has produced effective and efficient permitting, utility, and storm water management solutions for complex scenarios –  ranging from undeveloped to highly urbanized sites and small (<1 acre) to large (>100 acres) projects.
