Balmoral is a Land Tejas master-planned community established in 2006. Jones|Carter has provided services for 750 acres and will have 2,571 lots at buildout. In 2018, Balmoral opened its 2-acre Crystal Lagoon, the first of its kind in Texas.
Jones|Carter has been the engineering firm for the 750-acre, 2,570-home, residential, Land Tejas development in northeast Houston since its inception. In this role, J|C has maintained responsibility for the planning, surveying, and engineering of the development. Due to overwhelming demand for lots in this beautiful community, we were tasked to deliver the 2,500 lots in just 5 years. In a collaborative effort by many members of the J|C team, we were able to still meet the schedule and deliver the lots on time.
During early development, one of the biggest challenges was a nearby rail line. Our engineers were able to design a large storm sewer pipe underneath an active railroad track. They worked closely with Union Pacific Railroad to ensure that the railway was safe for the train while still satisfying the client and delivering the project on time and on budget.
