The Land Development Coalition represents the unique needs of firms that offer land development, site/civil and geo-technical services. Our goal is to strengthen the business environment and image of land development with clients, agencies and other engineering professionals.

LDC focuses on providing quality land use and site development services (including surveying/ geotechnical consulting) for both the private and public sectors. LDC works with other industry associates outside of the engineering realm, and acts as an advocate for member firms, addressing the issues influencing surveying, geotechnical consulting, and traditional site development.
