Development Consulting & Planning



Commercial retail design consulting has been a cornerstone for Arc Design Resources since our inception in 1993. For both local and national clients, from concept through construction, Arc Design offers complete site development services. We offer full project representation from due diligence investigations to zoning assistance to permitting and preparation of construction plans. We give our full participation in the multi-disciplinary design teams needed on these projects and pride ourselves as strong advocates for our client's needs on each and every project we represent. From the local strip center to the national retailer, Arc Design Resources has the collective experience needed to bring you a successful project.


Industrial sites are similar to large commercial development sites, but come with their own unique challenges, including the need for large and relatively flat paving areas for truck maneuvers, outside storage, and other specialty needs. Storm water detention is also a unique challenge given the flat grades and large paved areas. Our office has successfully provided quality design products for industrial sites and have worked in a variety of capacities, either as design consultants with an architect team, as a design build consultant to a general contractor, or directly for the industrial client.


During our history, Arc Design Resources has provided surveying and civil engineering services for numerous school and institutional projects within the region. We are able to bring our core competencies from our commercial development experience and apply the same advocacy for our institutional clients through solid project representation, planning, and design. Among the various projects, our most visible presence has been our role as campus engineer for the local community college, Rock Valley College since they initiated a campus modernization program in 1999.
