Planning

GLW has developed a reputation for creative, practical, and functional land planning and design solutions that will integrate a new project into the fabric of the existing community.  Project success comes from a team approach employing open collaboration with our clients to balance their development program with innovative plans that meet local regulatory requirements.  We are process-oriented and prepare land use, engineering and environmental feasibility studies to realize a property’s highest and best use.
