Silver Maple Farms - From Cornfield to Thriving Community

Middletown, DE
A-Del Construction/K. Hovnanian Homes
When A-Del Construction was contracted by K. Hovnanian Homes to develop a 196-acre site, they turned to Karins and Associates to provide professional engineering and surveying services for this complex residential community project.  With years of experience successfully completing the design of numerous subdivisions, our approach was to maximize the efficiency of the developing area, and preserve the natural resources and features of the primary space, while practicing good engineering.
Having already performed a feasibility study and with strong regulatory relationships, Karins was able to take the project through the process maze to successful completion. 

Karins’ services included:

  • Topographic and Property Survey
  • Traffic Impact Study and Design of Mitigation Measures
  • Flood Study and FEMA LOMR
  • Delineation of Site Resources and Capacity Analysis
  • Land Planning and Subdivision Design
  • Construction Plan Preparation and Agency Approvals
One of the most exciting features of the project that the community appreciates was the inclusion of the tree lined boulevard into the Karins’ land plan.  
After all permitting and approvals were obtained, Karins was retained by                    K. Hovnanian, the home builder, to provide construction engineering and survey of the individual lots.  In addition, our team provided site design and permitting of the community club house, a key feature of the community.

What once had been a cornfield is now a thriving community – a Four Seasons premier residential community where “you have the best of both worlds – resort-at-home amenities in concert with the latest in gracious home design".
