Land Planning is an integral part of the design process. As land values increase and suitable land decreases, understanding the proper design and use of a parcel is critical. We have a firm grasp in today’s development and design techniques, including sustainable design, LEED Certification, and Traditional Neighborhood Development.
Places where people want to be
We embrace the essential qualities of the land and create places that are creative, innovative, and successful in the marketplace. We convey these principles to the regulatory officials and the public in comprehensive presentations and printed materials.
We work with our clients to develop ‘concept plans’ early in the design process to identify the best use and areas for development. By providing upfront planning, we encourage a more efficient design process, saving time and money for our clients.
