Alta’s interdisciplinary experts have a wealth of knowledge and the ability to “think beyond the curbs” in understanding the most effective placemaking practices for each individual community.

Design should respect both the natural and built environments, afford people convenient transportation choices, and create inviting outdoor gathering places. We champion a place-based design approach to create communities that not only support active lifestyles, lively commerce, and healthy ecosystems, but also reveal the rich story of a place.

Gateways, streetscapes, and public spaces have the ability to strengthen and promote the identity of a community, district, or corridor. Alta works in a highly collaborative manner to develop creative, holistic designs that are drawn from the authenticity of each place. We use a sustainable design approach to develop concepts that integrate best management practices, green infrastructure, and durable materials.
