Our master plans and urban designs reduce the use of fossil fuels through greater density, more efficient land uses, pedestrian districts, transit-oriented development, and energy farming, while improving the capture and quality of water and other natural resources. Greenhouse gases are countered through the use of landscape infrastructure, restoring natural systems, and applying re-forestation. These types of high-performance designs exploit natural amenities (open space, waterways, and under-used pocket spaces), create low-maintenance landscapes, and ensure the latest in resource-conserving technologies with the goals of restoring, regenerating, and inspiring.
