In this age of increased construction and development, the requisite needs of humankind and nature are often in conflict. We frequently ask that the natural environment yield to our expansion. But if unplanned or haphazardly planned, the annexing of nature can have calamitous results, often far beyond the sheer detriment to aesthetics. Prudently planned and evaluated, however, our growth can be in harmony with the environment. The reshaping of our natural surroundings can yield an improved environment that is both functional and enjoyable. In this context, the role of Derck & Edson is defined. Success, creativity, experience – this is what Derck & Edson brings to your planning efforts. Our clients are amazed by the results of the planning processes.
