Our people make the difference.

Brittain Storck, ASLA, PLA

Britt has established her landscape architectural career around trail and corridor placemaking, and active community design and planning. She is a design principal at Alta and leads the firm’s Atlanta office. Britt serves nationally on the East Coast Greenway Alliance Board of Trustees and is Vice President of the Atlanta-region Chattahoochee National Park Conservancy Board of Directors. Britt works collaboratively with engineers and planners, urban designers and in a volunteer capacity across the country to develop projects that activate communities and improve the quality of life. She has a strong technical understanding of the design and construction challenges associated with public trails in all types of landscapes and infrastructure palettes, and as a result brings a unique understanding of user experience associated with linear space.

“During my experience in designing and planning more livable communities, I've come to terms with what I consider to be the essence of my work: connections. Whether it's an urban hike in a new city, a trail run through a forest, or cycling through neighborhood streets, I always feel the most alive exploring connections. As designers of these connections, we are tasked into awareness and consideration of our environment, culture, health, economy, and aesthetic while creating a variety of solutions for the human experience. We enjoy challenges that ultimately seek to identify a balance between where we live and how we live. In every community we work with, there are opportunities to promote this balance and shore up the positive attributes that are so unique to places.”
