We have extensive experience in master planning for a wide variety of sites including parks and open spaces, campuses, new communities, museums, recreational facilities, streets, cemeteries and natural preserves. Through an interactive visioning process, we work closely with clients and stakeholders to establish overarching goals and guiding principles as a basic framework. We then develop an initial program of uses and activities to be accommodated, as well as an analysis of unique features of the site, its constraints and opportunities. We synthesize the above work, and, through collaborative workshops, prepare a number of different options for the overall plan. Evaluating the options using economic, environmental and social criteria, we arrive at a preferred plan that best satisfies the original goals and planning principles.

The refined, final Master Plan typically will be accompanied by illustrative graphics, design guidelines and a report summarizing the planning process. Our process is inclusive, iterative and open to all ideas along the way.
