LAND PLANNING & DEVELOPMENT

With both the quantity and quality of our natural resources strained, land development requires evolving strategies to keep pace with a rapidly changing regulatory environment.

We are here to help you “jump all the hurdles” and succeed in making your dream for a project into reality. Our team of engineers, surveyors, planners, and landscape architects offers a complete range of services to support your residential, office, or commercial development needs from feasibility analysis through construction. We will help you balance the myriad of potentially conflicting concerns: environmental and financial considerations; public and private interests; practicality and aesthetics.

Residential Development

We approach residential development with an eye toward building neighborhoods full of places to call home. Each community is designed to connect to and complement the surrounding area, with public amenities like parks and greenways that entice residents to get outside, enjoy the environment, and meet new people. Providing safe and beautiful places for people to grow, learn, and play fulfills the dreams of homeownership that so many people cherish and allows us to enhance the cities and towns that we ourselves call home.

Commercial Development

Commercial development both drives and supports residential growth, which means a good developer must grasp the needs and goals of the community in order for office and retail developments to thrive. Guided by design principles that emphasize community engagement, we design commercial centers that create jobs, attract visitors, and encourage people to gather for special and everyday occasions. Our projects range from simple outparcels through boutique shopping plazas to large, urban mixed-use developments that seamlessly integrate living, working, and playing. But no matter the size, each development has a strong connection to the local culture.
