Commercial Solutions

Westwood understands the land development process, from site selection and entitlements through on-site and infrastructure construction. We bring significant experience in securing a property’s best use through four broad service phases; Due Diligence/Land Evaluation, Entitlements, Firm Design, and Construction Services.

Property / Land Consulting Services

Often, property and land use issues do not fit into neat boxes or allow for canned or simple solutions. Westwood helps clients faced with tough property or land issues.  With multi-disciplined services, our clients benefit from complete evaluations and solutions for almost any property and land matter.
