Founding Partners Diane and Charles Norris are prepared to assist our clients in devising sensitive and creative solutions that can respond to today's needs and adapt to change over time. We embrace planning for a diversity of public and private uses including maritime, commercial, historic, educational, recreational, residential, museum, exhibition, and public art challenges. We are also committed to the working waterfront, multimodal transportation, water transit, public access, climate change adaptation and meaningful community engagement.”
