Schmidt Nichols

Master Site Planning

Our office provides in-house master site planning services, which showcases our professional knowledge and expertise. This collaborative process merges with our client’s vision for their property to create stunning sense of place for master planned communities. Our site planning professionals are experienced in maximizing density and intensity through creative and innovative design, while maintaining code compliance. We are committed to translating the client’s needs into functional, cost effective design solutions.

Land Use Analysis

Our professional team provides analysis to assist our clients in determining site suitability, financial feasibility, and the best use for their property. This  data is compiled into Due Diligence Reports that focus on state and local Comprehensive Plan Policies, land development regulations, surrounding properties, traffic patterns, and political climate. A complete review of local, state and federal rules, regulations and guidelines is obtained to ensure the information we are providing is current and progressive. Our Due Diligence Reports provide detailed recommendations, various site plan scenarios, and time frames for project completion, giving our clients the knowledge they need to make sound property investments.

Sustainable Practices

We promote sustainable landscapes by specifying native and ‘water-wise’ plants, and xeriscape initiatives utilizing the guidelines of SFWMD and local Florida municipalities.  We provide sustainable landscape solutions along with low impact development elements, such as bioswales and permeable pavements, to aid clients in lowering landscape maintenance costs and to lessen the impact on their environment. Schmidt Nichols is set apart from other firms because we possess a strong foundation in both small and large scale landscape architectural design, knowledge of local landscape Florida requirements, and the aspiration to create harmony between the client’s needs and the natural environment.

Planning & Zoning

Once a development scope and program are defined, our firm serves as lead consultant to “quarterback” and coordinate the consultants through the entitlement process. We have an on-going working relationship with numerous consultants in each discipline to best fit them with the size and needs of the project. As the lead consultant, we will coordinate with architects, traffic and civil engineers, surveyors, environmental planners, and attorneys to complete applications and compile supporting documentation to submit to the applicable jurisdiction. We actively track and monitor the project through the entitlement process, which includes coordinating with the development and construction team through the building permit process.

Public Representation

Our firm works diligently on the client’s behalf to navigate the project through the entitlement process. We provide public representation for our clients as they seek entitlements. We are experienced in meeting with surrounding property owners, stakeholders, interest groups, home owners associations, and various appointed and elected officials to inform and educate them on projects requiring their support.  Our firm also provides a wide range of graphics and presentation materials for our clients. Whether it’s for a public hearing, or a sales center, no project is too small for our team of graphic artists. We have the capability of expressing exactly what you need said through a graphic or presentation board.

Site Plan Approval

Whether a P.U.D., site plan approval, major or minor administrative amendment, we give the same attention to detail required to obtain the necessary approvals. Our firm will coordinate with the development team and compile the necessary documents and plans in order to obtain approvals. Typically the final site plan is required to proceed to submittal for building permits.  During this process our office provides construction administration support from permit issuance to final landscape/irrigation inspections.

Construction Documents

Our firm works closely with the client during the landscape architectural or land planning process, in accordance with prior approvals, so the project can be completed within the proposed budget. The initial Design Phase consists of drawings and other documents that establish the size and scope of the project, as well as space planning, materials and other elements that may be appropriate. Based on the clients’ approved design, the Construction Documents will consist of working drawings and specifications in accordance with all applicable Florida codes, laws and regulations, describing and setting forth in detail the work to be done in constructing the landscape architectural or land planning project, materials, equipment required through punch list and final inspections.

Landscape Architecture

Our integrative landscape architectural design solutions strive to seamlessly incorporate and complement the client’s site and building. Our team performs on-site analysis with construction and bidding assistance to ensure that the final quality landscape design is both functional and highly attractive.  We provide the best solutions that integrate all aspects of the site from underground utilities to unique architectural features, by collaborating closely with the client’s architect and engineers. Our landscape architecture services vary as greatly as our Florida clients' interests do, from  site plan approval landscape designs, building permits, to large and small scale commercial, industrial, and recreational uses, to detailed hard-scape and soft-scape designs for private residences.
