Stratford-build out
Urban Design 

Harriman has provided urban design solutions for clients nation-wide, from individual sites to large communities. Our design philosophy is rooted in our commitment to urban design methods that integrate infrastructure into the larger setting of the community. Our approach toward urban design consistently strives to create continuity for historic environments while providing new elements that meet contemporary needs.

Successful urban design requires the ability to choreograph practical increments of both public and private investment over time. Our approach to urban design recognizes the importance of this in composing built environments that meet the current and future goals of our clients, both stylistically and economically. Harriman provides a wide range of specialized urban design services as a core component of its service offerings. This work applies the skills of professionals with specific training and experience in urban design, in addition to their associated credentials in architecture and landscape architecture. Our work includes projects for public and private sector clients.
