Parks and Trails

Parks, trails, and recreational facilities make up the heart of a community. Our professional landscape architects, engineers, and surveyors embrace the opportunity to design the amenities and integral links that connect these communities. Our award-winning team listens to our clients to provide engaging, cost- and maintenance-conscious spaces.

Environmental Resources

When designing near wetlands, streams, forests, and other environmental resources, our team of professionals are diligent about the design implications for the success of a project. Our planners and designers take into consideration code requirements, permitting, site and geotechnical considerations, structural conditions, durability, and user safety, to name a few.

Sustainable Trails

A sustainable trail meets the user's needs and expectations, protects the environment, and requires minimal maintenance. Designing sustainable parks and trails is critical to a successful project. Our designers work with stakeholders, including the associated community, to adopt lasting results for any parks and trails project. The intent is to create a space to connect to public lands while conserving natural resources.

Technology in Planning

Using emerging technology to inventory and analyze existing and proposed trail conditions is vital in removing subjective approaches. Using drones to collect LiDAR, high-resolution inspection imagery, video, thermography, traditional photogrammetry, and hyperspectral imaging data produces measurable baseline conditions. The results can then be converted into reconstruction data and trail maintenance.
