Urban Design

Shaping The Urban Fabric

Urban design involves taking many seemingly conflicting factors and merging them into a cohesive, visually pleasing, and sustainable solution. Our collaborative approach is a combination of working closely with the community and bringing the expertise we’ve built over 50 years of experience.

Here are some examples of things we can help with:

  • Sustainable Streetscape Design
  • Community Plazas
  • Stages and Amphitheaters
  • Pocket Parks/Parklets/Micro Park Design
  • Waterfront Development
  • Urban Trails
  • Non-motorized Trails and Pedestrian Walkways
  • Tree Evaluations

Each of the items above can involve many considerations, such as:

  • Pedestrian Circulation
  • Vehicular Circulation and Parking
  • Visual Appeal and Planting Design
  • “Complete Street” Design
  • Community Connections linking parks, schools, open space, and activity nodes
  • Operations and Maintenance
  • Construction Sequencing to keep businesses open
  • Stormwater Management

From the very first stages of pre-planning through budgeting and construction administration, we can help with all aspects of urban design or just the parts with which assistance is needed.
