Site Development is the implementation of the improvements that are needed to prepare a construction site or underly a structure or development before construction can begin. Site development covers a range of activities that are defined by the design of a project.
To prepare the land or site, the infrastructure must be created. This involves establishing erosion controls, clearing and grubbing, and grading. The project may also require boring, blasting and pilings, and usually, permanent and sometimes temporary retention and detention ponds.
The site must be inspected during each stage of development. Theses inspections include the first ground disturbance inspection, the pre-construction inspection, the side sewer inspection, the special inspection, and the final inspection.
