Markets | Planning - Design Guidelines
Design guidelines positively influence actions over time to enhance and elevate the quality of places. Developing meaningful guidelines requires a balance of the specific and general in order to provide the appropriate balance between instruction and flexibility. This balance, as well as design knowledge across many professional disciplines are two of the unique skills that allow Harriman to consistently write practical, user-friendly and award-winning projects. We understand that design guidelines and standards must be helpful and user friendly. The document should help answer questions and provide a straight-forward “how-to” guide to create a project that applicants, neighbors and the municipality will deem successful. Design guidelines speak to several audiences simultaneously and Harriman understands how to produce the documentation that serve the needs of each of these users.
