Every day you make countless contacts with the physical world. The town where you live, the water you drink, the air you breathe, the roads you travel, the parks where your children play, the schools where they learn. While most of these everyday encounters are taken for granted, some serious thinking has gone into making each of these better than it used to be. And there's a good chance we had our heads in it.
We are the resource that communities, institutions, and businesses turn to for forward-thinking solutions to their everyday challenges. Efficient wastewater treatment, managed stormwater programs, clean water supplies, integrated electrical and mechanical systems, implemented plans, and preserved historical structures.

There will never be a replacement for face-to-face human connection. Here lies the power of developing social infrastructure.
The Scott Outdoor Amphitheater is a free outdoor structure, offering a space for human connections to occur year-round. Like many amphitheaters, it is a space for people to come together, communicate, and connect. Events held in amphitheaters invite social interactions and establish personal relationships. Every year, rain or shine, the Swarthmore commencement is held in this very space.
Spaces such as courtyards are free; they are accessible; they nurture human-to-human relationships. Use of inviting scenery and purposeful design enhance and promote the social opportunities that courtyards provide.
Welcoming sidewalks and street spaces foster a sense of community and engagement within a public space. By enhancing their streetscapes, Oxford Borough invested in the social engagement of their residents and their visitors.
Community parks that offer many social spaces to enjoy create opportunities for many social relationships to form. Wyomissing Borough’s care and attention to all of the needs makes for a comforting and welcoming place for all to enjoy.
