Work Better
To be competitive in today's marketplace, municipalities must balance environmental, economic and social issues. 

Our work for public entities seeks to attract investment through appropriate planning and design. This delivers high quality spaces that attract people and spur economic development.

Our Urban Design Studio combines skillful planning and landscape architecture to carefully craft physical designs and implementation programs. These help municipal leaders, planners and engineers create attractive, competitive and sustainable neighborhoods, business districts, waterfronts and other important public spaces. Our market-centered and highly collaborative approach helps you add measurable value to your community and allows for Creating Better Places® to Live, Work, Shop and Play.
