With a Master’s Degree in Urban Planning, Tom Lamb brings a sophisticated understanding of the natural systems and principles of town-making, and the role the architectural form plays in a vibrant, livable community.
As part of developing a successful plan, we analyze the existing environment to determine what locations are most appropriate for different kinds of development, and how they should be combined. Also important is the range of uses and activities and how they complement and support each other. All of these factors are evaluated to maximize a property’s development potential and increase the diversity and vitality of an area.
We research and evaluate site conditions, traffic circulation, accessibility, sustainability, and regional or local zoning compliances and constraints, to design a framework for cities, towns, and neighborhoods that foster a sense of community and embrace the fabric of the surrounding urban environment.
Our urban planning services include:
- Master Plans
- Site Evaluations
- Feasibility Studies
- Development Strategies
- Strategic Plans
Working closely with developers and municipalities, we assist in assembling a team of local experts to:
- Conceptualize development
- Conduct market research
- Determine building uses
- Obtain regulatory approvals
- Analyze long-term economic effects, etc.
Our philosophy is based on the principle of harmony. We strive to design solutions which connect and integrate new structures into the existing environment in a seamless, integrative way. We appreciate a purist approach to contextualism, in which the character of the surrounding urban fabric is a key factor in developing a successful and vibrant livable community.
