Community Solutions Group

Community Solutions Group Overview

CSG LogoGAI’s Community Solutions Group (CSG) is a cross-functional team of professionals that helps create sustainable, livable places. We plan and design public spaces, sculpt landscapes and parks, reimagine streets and roads, and provide the regulatory and economic insight necessary to bring projects to life.

We work in a collaborative, inclusive way. We ask questions, listen carefully, and interact with residents, businesses, and civic staff to create practical solutions that fulfill both the current needs and long-term vision of the communities we serve.

GAI’s CSG includes accomplished landscape architects, urban designers, land-use planners, public finance and economic development specialists, and public administrators. Our clients include local government, agencies, institutions, and private development groups.

GAI’s CSG works from concept through construction, planning through policy. Our projects range in scale from region to city to neighborhood to street to site. We are passionate about our work, care for people, and are goal-oriented practitioners with a track record of positive outcomes.
