We follow a place-based, integrated systems approach to inform our master plans and urban design strategies. This ensures that our solutions are economically viable while being socially and environmentally responsive. Using biomimicry to inform our solutions, we look to the "genius of the place" - the native species, ecologies and cultures - for design inspiration, performance measures and time-tested resiliency strategies. We collaborate with clients, stakeholders, partners and diverse project team members ranging from soil scientists to software engineers. By setting specific goals and building consensus, we can ensure a successful process from design conception through construction.
