Varius staff are some of the Northwest’s leading development and peer review experts. Dan was selected to staff the City of Issaquah’s Major Development Review Team (MDRT) in 1996 and has been continuously involved in that project for over twenty years. The Issaquah MDRT won the Kennedy School of Business Award for Innovations in Government. Dan’s success includes a scrupulous attention to detail, extensive experience in planning and designing all phases of municipal utility systems, and an ability to see solutions that save time and money.
When and where it's appropriate, Varius staff use the intent of the code (rather than the letter of the code) to improve the cost, the performance and the maintainability of conventional water, sewer and stormwater systems. Traditional utility systems are often built to a one-size-fits-all standard (due to a perception that codes should be applied uniformly and without flexibility or creativity) and this often compromises the design and usability of the public infrastructure. Varius' staff extensive experience and familiarity with codes, and their experience as facility designers allows them to introduce creativity and flexibility into a code compliance exercise which often improves the performance and operating costs of conventional utilities. Whether it’s a routine waterline review, or a complex utility system, Varius has the experience to efficiently review and improve your projects.
