We have distinguished ourselves as national leaders in sustainable planning, particularly as it relates to regional master planning efforts targeting issues such as combined sewer overflow reduction, stormwater management, transportation networks, and community revitalization.
The foundation of our success with green infrastructure planning is place-specific design. We believe that green infrastructure planning and design must be based on the set of conditions and circumstances unique to each project, client, and community.
Additionally, our planning efforts emphasize the importance of garnering the support and collaboration of various agencies, organizations, community leaders, and stakeholders to integrate planned projects, infrastructure needs, and community plans within a study area to create multi-objective solutions that maximize a project’s return on investment. Our team considers the “business case” of each project component to compare costs and benefits of alternatives and to arrive at an optimized solution. Whether we utilize a triple-bottom-line assessment, a life-cycle cost analysis, or a unit cost comparison, we arrive at solutions that are cost effective and make sense for our clients.
