ECT’s Integrated Design & Engineering Studio offers value to our clients through the combination of civil engineering, landscape architecture, and ecological services. Our cross-disciplinary, climate-resilient approach engages each team member to collaborate on creative solutions that thoughtfully integrate with the landscape and associated buildings. This approach allows budgets to be maximized, and capital dollars to be spent wisely and extended further. Our team provides complete design and engineering services on projects, from initial evaluation and visioning through construction observation and longer-term landscape stewardship and monitoring.
