Our Mission and Culture

Vision In Action

Delivering on our mission is enormously gratifying, and it’s a responsibility we take seriously. Our success is dependent upon a skilled, experienced team of professionals who are supported by a vibrant culture.

That’s why as a company, we strive to create an environment that’s creative and collaborative, where professionals from different disciplines can solve problems together, learn from one another, and inspire each other.

It’s why we communicate and act with integrity, doing the right thing by clients, partners, communities, and each other, always.

It’s why we promote sustainable development and management practices – from LEED certification to philanthropy – to work toward greater results for investors, partners and employees, and ensure more mindful, efficient use of resources, and healthier environments everywhere we invest, work, and live.

Ultimately, the work we do puts people to work in their communities, transforming them into more connected, vital, and prosperous neighborhoods, cities, and economies.
