Professional Philosophy And Approach
Crosby Hanna & Associates recognize that responsible planning and design must be based upon:
This approach asserts that a thorough knowledge of a project area is necessary in order to realize its full potential, to assess and predict a project's biophysical and aesthetic impact and to provide a foundation upon which rational and responsive proposals can be built. In association with this requirement, it is our belief that close consultation must be maintained with clients and other identified interests. This emphasis upon the combination of high quality work and close client consultation rests at the heart of our success.
Application of this approach requires that an interdisciplinary approach be taken to the process of analysis, planning and design. Therefore, we have assembled a team of experienced professionals and technical support staff, each member of which has acquired a high level of expertise in his or her own field. Collaboration and team work, as integral components of an interdisciplinary approach, are standard aspects of daily practice for individuals in the firm. Through this approach, we are able to provide clients with a product which reflects the combined skills and experience of the partners and staff within the firm.
