Breaking New Ground

Gresham Smith has a roster of talent that includes surveyors, civil engineers, landscape architects and planners who bring a depth and breadth of expertise to develop sites to their fullest potential. From site selection and master planning through groundbreaking and construction completion, we excel at both private and public-sector projects because our teams know the landscape well—the major players, the regulations in place, the existing infrastructure and urban design requirements. We deliver thoughtful and comprehensive roadmaps for large and complex projects as well as small-scale ventures, keeping in mind that every plot of land presents its own unique challenges and opportunities.


We provide creative solutions through a well-rounded set of expertise that is focused on the details without losing sight of the big picture – and your long-term growth.


“We are very grateful to Gresham Smith for their work in helping us lay out the four micro homes on the lot to create a unique community for the homeowners. Their team also led us through the required rezoning process, and we couldn’t have brought this project to life without them.”
