Subdivisions & Site Plans


With every town and city having different regulations combined with state and federal regulations, it helps to have an experienced design and permitting team on your side.  Outback has permitted hundreds of subdivisions, condominium sites, 40B developments, residential, commercial and industrial site plans across Massachusetts.  Knowing the regulations, environmental restraints and soil conditions are critical to a successful outcome.  Outback's team of engineers and design professionals always work with our client's best interests and achieve efficient and cost-effective design as well as an expeditious permitting process.  Where larger and more complex projects can take more than a year to permit, we will remain steadfast to get the job done!
