Excellent master plans begin with deep listening: to campus stakeholders; to existing site and facilities conditions and use; to the data revealing the demographic, economic, and political context. We even develop new ways of listening, through gamification and productive stakeholder engagement exercises. From this solid foundation, a clear vision for future campus development emerges that responds to immediate concerns and is flexible enough to adapt to an unknown future. Our greatest joy is using creative problem solving to develop plans that satisfy diverse needs which at first seem to be competing.
While the majority of our experience is in planning for Higher Education, we have additional experience in planning for neighborhoods, businesses, and community organizations.
