ORLANDO, FL — VHB welcomes Danielle Van De Loo, PE, as Senior Project Manager on the Orlando Land Development team. She will lead the development, design, and permitting of new land development projects across Central Florida. With an increasing annual population of more than 300,000 residents, Van De Loo joins VHB at an important time in residential, multi-family, and single-family property development, as this region of the Sunshine State continues to experience tremendous growth and a booming housing and industrial market.

Van De Loo is an advocate for creating communities that connect residents to opportunity with a mix of residential, commercial, and civic uses that are sustainable, equitable, and pedestrian- and transit-friendly. She has more than 15 years of engineering experience managing, planning, and designing developments including site planning for commercial, industrial, and residential projects ranging from half-acre to 2,000 acres in size, including Twin Lakes, an over 700-acre, 2,000-plus unit residential multi-phased development in Osceola County.

Van De Loo's experience in master planning, permitting, and design for drainage, earthwork, utilities, wetland, and species mitigation will help deliver projects on-time and within budget. She will provide insight to clients on development code criteria that considers recreation, setbacks, and road networks.

“Danielle’s broad experience in land development brings creative solutions to our clients' most critical real estate challenges,” said Adam Smith, PE, LEED AP, Assistant Director of Land Development. “She will help move projects forward via thorough and quality-driven site permitting and approvals.”

At VHB, Van De Loo will help deliver an integrated approach to real estate and urban planning projects for new communities like The Grow, a farm and garden community in East Orlando, and expansion of Eagle Creek in the community of Lake Nona, Florida.
