Master Planning

At Cuningham Group, we designate one Master Planner to each major project we work on. Master Planners are highly experienced professionals assigned to help guide decision-making with consideration of comprehensive design, budgetary and staffing objectives and constraints. Whether assigned to a single building or a larger campus or neighborhood, Master Planners influence the design of a project from conception through construction. Additional responsibilities include working with clients to evaluate site access, existing built and natural conditions, opportunities for expansion, and/or unforeseen site limitations, to effectively and expediently affect all aspects of the design process.
