McMillan Pazdan Smith has often been engaged by corporations, organizations and institutions to examine best options for future growth and development.  These planning and design studies include development + comprehensive planning, district + precinct planning and feasibility studies that merge with conceptual design.  All of these activities fall under the common heading of master planning.

Within each of our five studios:  Healthcare, Higher Education, Corporate, K-12, and Community, we have prepared master plans that guide development over time.  In each case, our planning + design studies investigate optimal practices within a broad context including economic, environmental and social factors that influence the immediate situation.  More often than not, we are invited to provide further design services for all phases of the evolving plan.
