DEA helps our clients add value to their property through entitlements, planning, platting, landscape architecture, and preliminary and final design for commercial, industrial, residential, mixed-use, and transit-oriented developments.
Dave Evans built a successful professional services consulting firm based on his skill in designing residential communities. Since 1976, DEA has been recognized for preparing innovative designs that balance growth with environmental sensitivity.
Today, our land development experts not only thoughtfully design residential communities, we find workable, creative solutions for complex land development projects, including industrial and transit-oriented development; commercial, retail, and entertainment projects; parks and recreation facilities; streetscapes; and master planned communities. We also excel at redevelopment. Converting blighted industrial areas into attractive mixed-use communities, mineral extraction sites into clean industry locations, and industrial waterfronts into gathering places is the kind of work that speaks to DEA’s core purpose of improving the quality of life while demonstrating stewardship of the built and natural environments.
