Modernization/Rehabilitation Design

 

Repurposing structures for a new use and upgrading existing multifamily dwellings enhances communities and expands the supply of quality affordable housing.

 

Landscape and Site Design

 

All housing projects have a responsibility to add and enhance the communities in which they exist. Well-designed landscapes encourage tenants to take pride in their homes as well as spend more time outside. With sustainable landscaping design, maintenance can sometimes cost less in the long run when compared to turf grass maintenance. By eliminating or minimalizing the need for fertilizer, pesticides, and watering the property can be beautiful and functional with minimal maintenance costs.
