Centrum and The Villas at Centrum Project
Our projects are designed for function and aesthetic concerns, with retail and environmental awareness mixed in. Commercial development requires experts in permitting and engineering, and entails defining environments that will attract clientele and accommodate employee need.
The Crossroads at Mingus
The Crossroads at Mingus project includes 42,328 square feet of available commercial space on approximately 3.2 acres. This project provided a level of commercial opportunity that was not currently available any where else in the area. SEC provided the engineering and entitlement processing which consisted of general plan amendments, public participation, rezoning, and preliminary and final platting. SEC worked closely with the developer and the project architect to create a site grading plan that worked with the current condition as well as with ADOT requirements. The drainage particularly needed to address the standards of the town without negatively effecting the ADOT right-of-way.
Mariposa Latin Inspired Grill
Mariposa Latin Inspired Grill is a premier restaurant in the city of Sedona. This project was developed on a site that had previously been used for a real estate office. Situated at a highly visible location along the highway through town, the antiquated building had been vacant for some time and was an eyesore to the community. The developer proposed to construct a high end restaurant with spectacular views of the surrounding red rocks that would enhance the community's appeal as a tourist destination. The project required a zoning amendment and substantial coordination between the community, the Arizona Department of Transportation and the city to address the many concerns of the local residents, traffic impacts and infrastructure requirements. SEC was hired to coordinate the entire permitting process along with all the civil engineering and construction documentation. The restaurant is a highly acclaimed attraction to the community.
The Tavern Hotel
The Tavern Hotel was a quaint and popular 8 room hotel that provided accommodations for visitors to Cottonwood's upgraded Old Town district and surrounding areas. Due to increasing popularity of the area, the Hotel was needing to expand. To do so the owner needed to provide additional parking to accommodate the increase in clientele. SEC was hired to provide the engineering services for the grading and drainage plans for the hotel expansion as well as coordination with the city to make improvements to the adjacent alley for access. SEC also was tasked with finding space for the additional parking requirements. Public parking in the Old Town District was already inadequate so an innovative approach was devised that utilized a portion of the city Right of Way to provide parking for both the Hotel and much needed additional public parking for visitors to the Old Town district. The plan required coordination with several property owners and a land exchange with the city. The solution to the problems were enthusiastically received by the owner and the city.
Galileo 33 Winery
Galileo 33 is a proposed winery situated in the Old Town district of Cottonwood. The site is located on a hillside that is highly visible from the downtown. The new winery will utilize the slopes of the hillside for grape vines and a vacant building on the site will be remodeled into a winery, tasting room and restaurant. Visitors to the Old Town District will be able to access to the facility via a pedestrian path. The project will require a zone amendment. SEC is providing the civil engineering services for the site work, zone amendment and permitting.
