Closing the planning loop from the region to the building envelope
One Earth helps guide communities to realize their planning and development goals with an eye to a sustainable and energy responsible future. Planning is a holistic endeavor and is part of a larger system that makes up the fabric of the built environment. Decisions in one area affect others, which then affect others. We start from a mile high and drill down to the parcel when looking at all client needs. This comprehensive and holistic approach allows a community to translate a vision into an actionable plan that will not sit on a shelf. Not only do we take a comprehensive approach, but we leverage the newest technologies and planning tools and techniques while maintaining environmental, political, economic and cultural sensitivities and realities.
