Design For Impact

Many communities face challenges related to food access, environmental quality, health disparities, and workforce development. Fortunately, every site has the potential to promote public health, strengthen environmental systems, and enhance economic viability. BSD is committed to designs that accomplish all three, in addition to creating beautiful spaces. Design For Impact is a process and evaluation tool we developed as a framework we can apply to every project. It shifts the focus from a unilateral emphasis on visual impacts to a more comprehensive approach to address multiple challenges.  

BSD works with experienced consultants in order to access the latest research and employ sound methods for evaluation and documentation. By collaborating with excellent local community partners such as non-profits, universities, and city agencies, we can add value to every project in the form of information, programming, maintenance, and other resources.
