Site Development

CMW is one of the region’s premier landscape architectural firms. An enviable client retention rate has enabled CMW to provide design services on a wide range of projects during our 50+ years. Site design should be approached as an extension of the cultural, geophysical and ecological processes that shaped the land. Accordingly, in addition to a comprehensive knowledge of the cultural and physical components of a site, our approach also requires a thorough understanding of the desires of the client and the users. In the very competitive arena of site design, CMW strives for innovative, cost-effective, functional and sustainable design solutions. Our approach may include but is not limited to consideration of traffic impact and transportation access, environmental constraints, parking, storm water runoff and the cost of infrastructure improvements, depending on the needs of the project.

Site development is a crucial first step to getting your project started. CMW’s team is here to help, making the most out of your site and your budget. From zoning and surveying to land acquisition and planning, our services are comprehensive, assisting you from concept to completion. Site development is all about location and site accommodations. CMW has the ability to follow the critical path approach to obtaining planning and environmental permits, which enables our clients to start construction earlier. CMW focuses on identifying development issues early and creating an action plan to resolve these issues.
