Developing planned, multi-use communities can be a massive undertaking requiring broad-based expertise in issues affecting both horizontal and vertical site development. Zoning and permitting, program management, wetlands conservation even brownfield reclamation and administration are all potential areas of concern. But technical skill and expertise is not enough. Developers and their representatives also must address the often divergent and seemingly conflicting interests of community stakeholders, special interest groups, government agencies and construction firms. Helping these groups explore and acknowledge their common interests can go a long way toward moving even the most controversial project forward.
ACS has successfully helped clients through all stages of the community development process from site evaluation and acquisition to site design, planning and program management. We have skillfully staged complex construction schedules, overseen the development of large-scale, residential-resort communities—even helped financial institutions evaluate the desirability of backing specific projects. Our expertise can be applied successfully across a broad range of commercial and institutional projects. These include research/commercial parks; college, health care and corporate campuses and military bases scheduled for decommissioning and redevelopment.
