The following principles provide the foundation for our philosophy, the combination of which lead to great design and successful projects:
We see the big picture: Understanding a community and the environmental, political and economic challenges that surround and define a project are essential skills that we possess. We employ an early consensus building process to help weave the design of our projects into the community so that they contribute to the long-term quality of life.
We know the process: The Berkshire Design Group knows how to guide clients through the permitting and regulatory process with federal and state agencies, local planning boards, conservation commissions and other municipal boards and agencies. Our designs respond to these constraints so that our projects are approved in a minimal amount of time, with community support.
We practice environmentally sensitive design: Designing for a sustainable future is a hallmark of our firm’s approach to projects. From designing innovative storm water management systems to developing LEED certified design we look for ways to minimize environmental impacts, providing a sustainable legacy to leave behind.
We are creative: Every design problem holds the opportunity for a creative, innovative and elegant solution. We thoroughly explore the possibilities to create a design that is beautiful, economical and functional.
We love what we do: Our firm has talented, creative, dedicated professionals who are passionate about their work. Our passion for our work translates in to success in our projects.
We have the services you need: By combining landscape architects, civil engineers and land surveyors into one office, we integrate design and technology early in a project, streamlining solutions for a more efficient design and construction process.
We get things done: A project isn’t successful unless it’s actually built. Our design and technical skills, combined with great project management skills, allow us to transform great ideas into reality.
