Parks & Recreation
Environmental sensitivity and user safety are principal considerations during the design of parks and recreational facilities. Our design style is adaptive to site opportunities and constraints to enhance project individuality and ultimately reduce construction costs.
Architerra embarks on large-scale waterfront revitalization projects, park master planning efforts, and athletic facility designs. We also enthusiastically develop modest park enhancements such as woodland trails, rain gardens, picnic pavilions, and arboreal wetlands.
Architerra integrates community aspirations with municipal requirements and safety regulations. Throughout the design and construction process, Architerra works with client organizations to facilitate internal and public understanding of project goals. Our pragmatic approach to design and project management leads to project approvals and budget conscious construction.
