With more than 20 years of integrating form and function into beautifully designed and engineered sites, the essence of who we are remains consistent as Site Resources grows and evolves. We are landscape architects and civil engineers working together to create exceptional places through a continuously collaborative design process. The root of who we are has always been there, fusing and balancing elements in unified site design, and that’s not changing.
Members of Site Resources’ staff lent their time and enthusiasm to the Architecture, Construction and Engineering (ACE) Mentor Program for a seventh consecutive year. This national program actively seeks to inform high school students about future careers in architectural, construction and engineering.
