What makes the place you live someplace you want to live? What is it about that one resort that your family keeps going back to year after year? For over thirty years, we’ve been trying to work out all the details that make special places special. That’s a long time to be doing this stuff, but we’ve been having an awful lot of fun doing it. We started out in Wichita, Kansas in 1975, with the goal of providing our clients solutions to land development problems they wouldn’t find elsewhere or hadn’t heard before.
Fast forward three decades, and we find ourselves with a corporate headquarters in Branson, Missouri, a highly experienced and efficient staff, and a map full of pushpins representing projects stretching from mainland China to the mountains of Massachusetts. After all these years, over 130,000 acres of land planning projects have our stamp on them, but that isn’t to say all things have remained the same.
If there’s one thing we’ve learned about our industry, it is that change is a vital part of our day to day lives. We realized long ago that the timetable of the client is much more important than ours – so we adapt. Markets shift with the wind, and a project that was designed as single family housing becomes mixed use – so we adapt. We’re definitely not a one-stop shop – there are things that we decided years ago not to do in order to focus on the things we do well. The services we offer today are typically a blend of Landscape Architecture, Land Planning, marketing oriented Computer Graphics, and Architectural Rendering and Animation, but we’re still learning new tricks when we need to.
That quality a place has that makes you want to be there is hard to distill down to a label or list of items to include. We’d love to work with you to make your project not only financially successful, but also make it a place people are excited to live, work, shop, or play.
