Pioneer Engineering can provide all the Minnesota landscape services needed to get a new development constructed. We start with due diligence, providing the client with all the information we can find on a property including zoning ordinances, comprehensive plans, city policy documents, area as-built information, aerial photos, county section sheets, plats, and LiDAR topography. We will also have early conversations with regulatory agencies and conduct a site visit. From all of this information, we can develop concept plans using both the city and client requirements. From concept planning to preliminary and final plat to construction, Pioneer Engineering can provide clients with all the information they need to make informed feasibility decisions early in the development process and go on to guide the client through the entitlement phase by making timely applications and designing and engineering subdivision plans to ensure the client gets an attractive, profitable subdivision they can be proud to put their brand on.

We also have several services available a la carte, whether you are a large builder needing land surveying in Minnesota for an entire subdivision or a homeowner needing to have property lines located for a new fence. We have the staff and technology to handle jobs of any scope.
