Westwood is a diverse set of professionals with a broad range of experience in the analysis, planning, and site design for local cities, counties, and districts. With an ever-growing population, unpredictable climate conditions, aging infrastructure, and budgetary constraints, it is essential to efficiently plan and design for the future of our resources. To be successful, the project must meet the current demand, while providing for future expansion and contributing to the fabric of the local community in a meaningful and positive way.
Each project must be limited in its impact on the residential and business communities, both in the short and long term. Our project delivery approach is to integrate our technical and management staff to form a team with our clients, working closely together to ensure that the community’s goals and needs are being met with innovative and effective solutions.
Westwood holds input meetings to help involve and inform those impacted by projects. Engaging early on with property owners who are immediately affected helps foster an advocate community rather than adversaries as the project moves forward. We make it our priority to ensure the project starts on the right foot through a people-first approach.
Permitting is one of the most impactful aspects of a design project and can often add months or even years to the project schedule. Westwood is uniquely suited to work with multiple reviewing entities while bringing together all other phases of land development. When starting a new project, one of our first tasks is to check the current ordinances and regulations that could impact the project.
Westwood teams have a proven track record of writing successful grant applications, including competitive, formula-based, and monies designated through the congressional appropriation process. Our team members have obtained more than $180 million for clients through grant research, writing, and management. We are also experts in identifying additional funding opportunities, often beyond the anticipated scope, enabling our clients to get the most out of their budgets.
