Whether private or public environments, these land development projects are designed with the community in mind and help enhance the quality of life. Atwell’s approach is collaborative, often working with key stakeholders, architects, the community and the users to develop a solid site design that fosters an inviting and functional space.

Our employees are passionate about designing lasting impressions in their communities, and invested in creating successful solutions for public facilities and amenities on a local, county and state level. While we support a wide variety of community projects, most of them fall into one of the following categories:

Schools are the backdrop for our childhood memories, learning experiences and many, many firsts in our lives. Atwell is proud to contribute to developing safe and functional environments for students of all ages, incorporating design and development strategies that maximize public and private investments and create dynamic, flexible communities. Listed below are the main educational projects we support:

  • Preschool
  • K-12
  • Charter Schools
  • Higher Education

Public Facilities
Facilities that cater to the general public, such as libraries, community centers, municipal facilities and recreational spaces, are best designed through creativity, collaboration and consensus. While a specific public entity may own the property, the residents of the community provide the tax dollars, voting power and end-user audience for such initiatives. Atwell delivers to public and private clients in this space the experienced professionals, comprehensive services and mindful design strategies that ensure dynamic, inviting and accessible facilities.

Parks and Recreation
Park districts, golf courses, forest preserves and other outdoor recreational areas require significant management efforts to maintain vibrant and safe environments for visitors while preserving natural habitats and wildlife. Atwell’s real estate and natural resource development teams combine to create sustainable solutions for new building efforts, roadway and trail maintenance, ecosystem management and facility improvements. These teams also consult on land, watershed, wetland, waterway and other regional management systems related to preserving and protecting critical natural resources.

Municipal Infrastructure
Atwell provides municipal infrastructure improvement services both on behalf of private-sector developers, as well as on behalf of local municipalities. Participating in on-call engineering and environmental programs, as well as specific improvement and expansion programs, our professionals contribute to roadway, utility, water/wastewater, natural resources and other infrastructural improvement efforts.
