engineers, planners, urban designers, architects, landscape architects, ecologists and biologists. We work closely with our clients, eager to address the vexing challenges inherent in waterfront work. Our teams know better than anyone in the industry how to move a project from concept to completion. From harbors, parks and resorts to beaches, bluffs and promenades, we can help you navigate through a maze of permits and funding sources while mitigating the natural forces of waves, floods and currents.
It is a committed, collaborative partnership that is both pragmatic and visionary. What happens at the water's edge may be grounded in science and engineering—yet its solutions can be inspiring, inviting, and as timeless as the waves.
When you work with SmithGroupJJR, you become an integral part of the creative team because you bring insights that make your project distinctly yours. We listen and we hear. It’s where great design begins. To learn more contact us.
