Our drive to make positive change in our communities is about more than just technical work–it’s equally from the deep personal connection we all have to the places we work–which happens for us to be place we live and play as well. As a leading planning, design, sustainable engineering, and project management firm, we bring our expertise to natural and built environments across the United States, making them more vibrant, beautiful, and functional.
Since our founding in 1981, our urban designers, architects, engineers, planners, landscape architects, surveyors, and project managers have demonstrated that it is possible to be both practical and innovative. It is what we do; but why we do it is equally important and it has led us to our best work: whether that is integrating transit into a dense urban neighborhood or engaging with a community to put a mixed-use high-rise in a sensitive community context or working in the unique and sacred environment of a National Park. We are deeply interested and invested in the projects we do, with a passion for our clients’ vision. With a team of multidisciplinary experts, we add diverse experience and a forward-thinking approach to every pr...oject. We carefully consider how our work will affect future generations and that leads us to novel yet effective ways of addressing common challenges.
