our approach

comprehensive research, detailed field

assessment and careful documentation are at

the heart of our work

 

Our core staff, supported by a rotating team of historians, naturalists, resource economists and outdoor recreation specialists, emphasizes a public design philosophy for all our plans. Our process generally involves three phases: reconnaissance and inventory, visioning and final plan preparation. This approach allows us to maintain an efficient schedule in developing place-based plans that will guide future actions. In our reconnaissance and inventory phase, we immerse ourselves with the resources, visiting each site or feature of potential interest and fully documenting them in a GIS-compatible database accompanied by georectified high-resolution photography. We meet and talk with stakeholders and local specialists, and convene focus groups or host public workshops as necessary. The data and input we collect in our “work before the work” ensures our plans are truly comprehensive. During the visioning phase, we develop realistic implementation strategies and alternatives, and probable cost estimates based on available funding scenarios. We work closely with our clients and collaborate with our partner agencies to ensure that project goals and objectives are being met, and we provide regular, detailed reporting on our activities for client review. We pride ourselves on high quality plans that are realistic, cost-effective and achievable. Richly illustrated and understandable, they incorporate best practices and outline clear implementation strategies, with timeframes developed with stakeholder input. Our goal is to provide plans that can be implemented immediately. We are committed to completing our projects on schedule and within budget. We are proud of our reputation and are happy to share examples of our work.
