Our team has the versatility and ability to provide tailored design solutions that deliver cost-effective and on-schedule projects for private developers, architects, and design-build contractors. We understand the specific requirements of multi-family developments, including speed-to-market, following the owners’ protocols, and the sensitive nature of introducing a new project to an existing neighborhood. Our project history ranges from suburban garden apartments to urban high-rise towers. Multi-family projects can sometimes present complex site design and permitting challenges. We understand these challenges and know how to overcome them.

Project Phasing Expertise

Our depth of experience in all varieties of multi-family projects, coupled with the wide range of internal design resources, allows us to assist clients with entitlement, planning, design, and construction for projects that make a difference.

Site Design Solutions

Design expertise is critical to maximizing a site’s potential. A shared parking analysis can reduce the new parking needed for a site, allowing for more green space or living areas. Traffic and access studies can increase a project's circulation and visibility potential. Our engineers provide these solutions, which add value to a site.

Stormwater Practices

Our water resources team manages and solves complex drainage problems for our clients while, at the same time, protecting stormwater quality and the infrastructure serving the public. Low-impact stormwater practices, including sub-surface systems, can increase the buildable possibilities of a multi-family site.
