We Create Healthy Places for People
Vireo aims to make a real impact, bringing life to public spaces and contributing to the livability and economic success of our communities. We listen to the people who care about the places in their lives and create ways to make their cities more vibrant, welcoming, inclusive, and reflective of the people who live and work there.
With a Focus on the Environment
Our deep commitment to and knowledge of sustainable landscapes allows us to enhance a sense of place, while promoting healthy ecosystems through biodiverse and native plant selections.
And a Forward-Thinking Approach
From initial concepts to detailed construction implementation, including planting design, site grading, irrigation, and construction phase services, we pride ourselves on assisting our clients and implementing their vision both on budget, on schedule, and as a high quality product.
We begin each planning process by carefully evaluating the natural setting and resource conditions to determine potential solutions, such as managing stormwater, mitigating harmful impacts, and protecting or restoring ecosystems. Utilizing the information gathered and our collective natural resource experience, we develop realistic goals. Throughout the planning process, we consider current conditions, long-term needs, changing land use, and how to adapt to climate change overtime.
Our work is sensitive to the national emphasis on sustainability, livability, and conservation of natural systems. We offer an approach to designing the built environment that enables the world and its fragile ecosystems to prosper. As designers and planners, we create practical solutions to address water management, promote biodiversity, use materials and energy efficiently, and promote health.
Using Inclusive Processes
Vireo uses a participatory process to generate solutions. We coordinate to gather information about a project and its audiences, then use their feedback to develop a targeted design strategy.
