The Settlement at Live Oak – Phase I

The Settlement at Live Oak is a 220 acre uniquely planned community featuring large estate homes, smaller single family homes and quaint cottages. Neighborhood amenities include shops, restaurants, landscaped parks, swimming pool and ponds with aerated fountains. DDG contracted with Southern Lifestyle Development to provide complete civil design and permitting services for phase 1 of this massive development, which included 144-residential/4- commercial lot traditional neighborhood development.

DDG handled designed and permitting for the drainage, utility, and roadway infrastructure for the development. DDG provided drainage design for the full buildout of the development, as well as a phase 1 drainage plan to meet parish code. DDG coordinated with multiple sewer treatment providers to provide the best option for the client. An onsite sewer treatment pond was determined to be the best treatment option and DDG provided assistance throughout the design. DDG handled permitting with Lafourche Parish, the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality, the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources, The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development, and The United States Army Corps of Engineers.



“We have worked with engineering firms from across the southeast, and DDG is one of the best.”
