Before ground can be broken, before a frame can be erected, before any physical work can really be done at all, everything must be planned. Master planning lays the foundation for a successful project. These plans guide the direction of a project, ensuring it stays on track, and accounting for all variables. Very simply, without master plans, a project cannot take off.
Master planning is generally accomplished in three major phases preceding design:
- Identification and assessment of needs.
- Inventory and analysis of existing site features such as soils, hydrology, topography, and vegetation.
- Project design solutions which sustain the character and are sensitive to the site, surrounding areas and the environment in general.
We have developed master plans for parks, schools and universities, hospitals, commercial developments, corporate office parks, multi-use developments, government facilities, and more. Our expertise and experience will ensure the best laid plans for your next project.
