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.
