master planning

The first step of any project, large or small, residential or commercial, is to resolve land use issues and determine how these issues can be incorporated with the client's needs and goals. Land use issues may include, but are not limited to:

  • Building location
  • Uniform building codes
  • Zoning compatibility
  • Neighborhood and local community input
  • Property line disputes
  • Views
  • Utility requirements
  • Drainage and grading
  • Waterways and flood plain constraints
  • Circulation
  • Climate; wind and sun exposure
  • Wildlife and vegetation
  • Sustainable and green energy (Solar) components

Each project, based on its unique location, has its own inherent set of assets and liabilities. Reconciling these assets and liabilities with the client's goals are essential to securing the necessary permits and approvals to complete the project.

AROUNDYOU invokes vision, cooperation and partnership with nature as our primary principles of master planning and land planning. At AROUNDYOU, we practice stewardship of the environment, at any scale of development, while at the same time accommodating regulatory, political, budgetary, time and physical constraints. Blending the environment and these constraints with the client's needs and goals are paramount to a successful project.
