We focus on clear communication and a transparent process to build trust and consensus around decisions.
We have a long history of engaging communities in both architecture and urban design work. We partner with our clients and communities to create transparency in communication to build trust with all stakeholders. A vision for change that is shared by the community will drive development that fosters neighborhood spirit, welcomes investment, and improves the quality of life.
Through our projects, we partner with the community to tell a story about the neighborhood to bring history to light. We do this by designing a framework for community engagement at the outset of a project to maximize opportunities for collaboration and input. The outreach strategy is unique to each project in order to reach the broadest audience. Our methods include large community meetings and workshops, small stakeholder meetings, community hikes, and the development of web or print materials.
