Get Effective, Cost-Efficient Dry Utility Designs

High quality dry utility designs for land development. It doesn’t sound like a big thing, but it is.

A lot of planning is required to calculate a development’s needs and design gas, electric, telephone and cable infrastructure to meet those needs and comply with regulatory requirements.

Experienced developers and civil engineers know they can trust RGA Design to provide that design expertise.

Our deep knowledge of utility standards and tariffs enables us to develop an effective, cost-efficient solution for your development or redevelopment project. We’re used to working with utility companies—our company’s founders have several decades of combined experience  working inside PG&E. They share that knowledge with our designers and drafters who bring their knowledge, energy and enthusiasm to the projects we take on.
