MCD Project Spotlight

Independence Townhome Community, Horizon West, FL

Monta Consulting & Design served as structural engineers for home builder Ashton Woods in the Horizon West Independence multi-family community. Horizon West is one of the fastest-growing areas in Orange County, Florida. This village-style community was master-planned in the early 1990s and has grown to be a popular choice to live in due to its proximity to Central Florida's major attractions.


MCD engineered and permitted six multi-family buildings, each consisting of 6-8 units. The individual townhome unit consisted of 1950 sq feet, two stories, and three bedrooms. Buyers were able to select between two different floor plan options produced. This product offers an ideal opportunity for families looking to settle in this prime community at an affordable price point.

Our firm is skilled in assisting builders and developers create entry-level multi-family products. A key component to creating affordable designs is our builder-friendly structural engineering services.


Elements such as the design of firewall applications, truss layouts reviews, and foundation depths all contribute to the structure's efficiency. In addition, our construction document formats are easy for any general contractor or trade to understand and apply. This approach reduces costs, field requests, and errors, resulting in a more efficient build.

Monta Consulting & Design is proud of our contribution to developing communities such as Horizon West, where all people can live, work, and play. For more information on how Monta Consulting and Design can work to benefit your next project, contact us today!
