Dave Schmitt Engineering Inc. has its hands full as developers are dusting off old plans to resurrect projects or taking over others that languished during slower times.

The Orlando-based civil engineering firm landed 10 Central Florida projects in the last two months, where it will be consulting with developers on planning, rezoning, engineering, design, permitting and construction services on hundreds of millions of dollars worth of construction that could be coming to the area as early as next year.

• Rolling Oaks, a 315-acre,1,200-unit resort community also by Encore Housing, which will include rental homes, timeshares and apartments and is a redevelopment of the former Splendid China attraction in Osceola County.
