The creation of unique experiences through design is at the forefront of Susan Grissim's leadership as a Principal of the firm. She promotes pedestrian-friendly and appropriately scaled design, minimal impact on the environment, and innovative use of common materials.
These social values are reflected in her work in urban planning and streetscape design, municipal projects, schools, multi-family housing, shopping centers, and urban revitalization projects. Her educational and early work experience in the western part of the country has inspired her use of design to enhance regional differences.
