Helping Clients Plan for Success

Often, projects begin with a master plan which allows you to anticipate issues and see how the project would look on a site. It allows you to verify a timeline for moving forward based upon the proposed improvements involved, any associated potential permitting, and gaining stakeholder support. In some cases, the master plan is used to support securing funds for the project.

Many clients have a vision of what they want and initiate projects that go straight into a ‘design for construction’ mode. In these cases, we provide some initial concepts to identify issues and permitting requirements to be addressed concurrently as the project design is developed. This allows us to move your project forward as quickly as possible, saving you time and money.

Context By Design is equally comfortable being your sole consultant, leading your design team as your agent, or working alongside allied professionals as part of your team. We take pride in our collaborative project approach. It routinely provides you with the best possible design solution.

Our expertise includes building siting and circulation design, site grading, landscape planning, permitting, public involvement facilitation, and project management. Contact us to find out how Context By Design can help you reach your goals. Call 207-963-9171.
