ONSITE DESIGN CHARETTES
The on-site Design Charette process is for smaller gardens and involves an interactive design process with the Owner at the site and at the kitchen table, resulting in a design with a quick turnaround and low upfront cost.
The traditional design process involves developing a design program, measuring the site to create a site plan to scale, developing a schematic master plan and preparation of a preliminary cost estimate.
Master Planning services include urban and suburban office parks, industrial and mixed-use complexes, schools & institutions, parks & playfields, greenbelt enhancement, and wetland mitigation.
