- land surveying
BHB provided project management, surveying and civil engineering services for the development of Parks of Aledo. Services included conceptual planning and planned development zoning for a multi-phase, 232-acre single-family residential development as well as a regional detention pond. Preliminary platting, utilities, land plan and flood plain analysis for the site were produced and submitted to the city as part of the initial development planning process.
Construction plans for the phased 559 lot site included final platting, balanced earthwork design, residential and collector street plan and profiles, storm drainage, an overall flood study and regional detention pond, water and sanitary sewer design, and offsite utility extension plans. BHB also designed soft surface, multi-use nature trails for hiking and biking to serve the Parks of Aledo residential subdivision and community.
Amenities will include four divided boulevard entryways featuring extensive landscaping and 75 acres of developed parks and natural open space, irrigated lawns, fountains and soft surface walking trails. Curbside amenities will include parkways lined with shade trees, concrete sidewalks, antique street lights, mail boxes and street signs.

John Margotta, RPLS
Vice President of Land Surveying
John Margotta has been with BHB for over 20 years. Previously, John worked for a company that provided surveying services to BHB. Shortly after BHB added a surveying department, John joined the team and is now the head of the surveying department. He has provided field and office supervision on land surveying projects for public and privately funded projects, including the DFW Airport, City of Fort Worth, TXU Electric, Southwestern Bell Telephone Co., Trinity River Authority, Federal Aviation Administration, TxDOT, Dallas Area Rapid Transit, Railtran, and Fort Worth Transportation Authority.
In high school, John held the rank of Master in the Fédération Internationale des Échecs (World Chess Federation). Outside of work, John loves cooking, football and karaoke. If he wasn’t a land surveyor, John would be a chef. “Cooking is very relaxing to me and I feel like I’m creating something good out of raw ingredients that may or may not taste good by themselves.” John’s favorite place to visit is New York City because he loves the different cultures, food, and architecture it has to offer.
John is an active member of the Texas Society of Professional Surveyors and the National Society of Professional Surveyors. He also volunteers for Skills USA, teaching high school-aged kids, who compete in local, state and national competitions, about land surveying.
John has two kids, a son who who graduated from The University of North Texas with a degree in graphic design, and a daughter who works for Mothers Milk Bank of North Texas, a nonprofit that collects breastmilk from healthy, nursing mothers who have a surplus and is dispensed to premature and fragile infants without access to their mother’s own milk. He also has one granddaughter. John’s favorite quote is from Winston Churchill, “Success is not final; failure is not fatal; it is the courage to continue that counts,” because he believes that one is never finished in life and even if you fail, at least you tried.
